Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

Capital de  Gran Canaria - Isla Europea del Deporte

Playa de Las Canteras

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

is one of the few capital cities of Spain which has kilometres of beach. Added to this, are the excellent climatic conditions of the island, which allow the beach to be used all year round.
The main beach, and the one where most tourists go, is la Playa de Las Canteras, awarded with several national and international quality certificates, among them, the Q for Tourist Quality awarded by the ICTE (Spain's Institute for Tourist Quality).
las canteras beach

Las Canteras Beach extends from La Puntilla to the Alfredo Kraus Concert Hall, a three-kilometre walk where different areas, each with its own characteristics, can be enjoyed: La Cícer (a surfers' paradise), Peña La Vieja (with a rocky area full of sea life), Playa Chica and Muro Marrero (the most familiar area), Playa Grande (the birthplace of tourism in the Canaries), and La Puntilla (local fishermen's las spot).

La Barra, a natual reef that goes parallel to half the beach and at only 200m from the shore, is a natural breakwater and also serves as natural shelter for swimmers and other beach users.
