Excellent beach, which seems to go on for miles. Lots of sun bed sections, as well as sporting sections on the beach itself. Lifeguards on main parts of beach, with flags advising where to swim. Shallow entry into sea, perfect for families with small children. Current can be strong outside of the flagged areas.

Play de Las Canteras is much more than a beach. People are using it for recreation and different kind of games. It is 3,5 km.

We were told this was the best beach but found the sea rough, the beach overcrowded and the sand black even though was told it was white all in all not the best beach in gran canaria

An amazing city beach to rival the famous Brazilian Copacabana. Several km of golden sand, a boardwalk, waves to surf, restaurant's, palm trees and sunshine make this a perfect place to relax.

I didn't visit the beach in daytime but at night this area is a "People Watchers" paradise with lots of restaurants to choose from. One slight downside was that none of the "Beachfront" restaurants would serve "drink only" when we were looking for somewhere for a nightcap before heading back to our hotel.

A hidden gem at the edge of the great little city of Las Palmas. Sand is very clean and is raked over by machine daily. Quite a few amazing sand sculptures created by talented artists are dotted along close the promenade. Plenty of very reasonably priced cafes and bars sit along this pleasant sunny walkway. Lovely place to visit. A... More
