This is truly one of the stylish world beaches! With a crescent shape promenade, accompanied with restaurants, bars and cafes, it is alway vibrant and busy. Beach itself stretches along the promenade with a beautiful sand, warm water and plenty of sun beds on offer. Every time we go GC we stay a few days by Las Canteras.

It was really hot in begining of September. During the day about 35C. During the night about 28C. Water is rather cold. You really need umbrella and sun cream.

It's one of the most beatiful beaches situated in the capital city. It had a natural coral reef, and a lot of life at saturday afternoon with the concerts of Playa Viva.

It's a nice beach but from all beaches I've ever visited this was the one I liked the less. Anyway it's better at north than in south.
