This is one of the best beaches I have been at. In the centre of the city, natural sand beach, with clean water, and good beach services, apart from good restaurants and coffee shops along its promenade. Good for small kids and great for snorkeling when low tide, thanks to natural barrier, and great when high tide for thouse who... More

Our favourite beach in Gran Canaria! This is one of the rare city beaches in Europe, and very good it is too. No wonder it was a favourite with Agatha Christie! It is lovely to wander from the busy city to this clean and beautiful beach. Safe, with good facilities. There are many good restaurants and cafe bars to choose... More

Walk in one of the best city beaches of the world. Take a seat in one of the numerous terraces and enjoy good food, see passing by people, and of course a cold beer in hand.

Las Canteras is a gem! White sand in some areas, BLACK volcanic sand on the auditorium end and a natural reef that in low tide turns it into a pool! You can visit it all year round! There's a wide range of water sports, loads of surf schools and diving centers to choose from. You can surf, paddle surf, take... More

if you want to go and visit this beach, better go by taxi because there is nearly no parking facility and always a lot off people. Plenty of options to eat and drink. And even taking a shower is possible 👍🏾. But at the end it just didn't impress me.
