there was plenty of beck chairs available and the beach was clean and the sea was warm to swim in. There were plenty of restaurants and café type eating places to get a snack or meal from also cold drinks.

The promenade is lovely, wide and well lit in the evening. It is lovely to stroll or jog, cafes and restaurants along the way, but not annoying you. Watching the fun and games on the beach, regular benches along the way for a welcome rest. Highly recommeded any time of day!! And the vocanic beach at the far end is... More

A clean city beach that is both tranquila and lively. Several kilometres of white sand, and rolling waves enclosed by a reef makes a perfect place to swim,stroll along the paseo or fill up on tapas. Truly an easy place to relax and soak up the sounds of the sea and the chatter of spanish families along with the tourists... More

Very organised beach with showers and kids playgrounds plus restaurant and pubs open untile late. Lovely just to walk there after dinner as it will be still quite liveley. On the downside can get very busy on the beach during mornings and if you don't live nearby you will struggle finding a car park unless you pay.

visited on 16 July and am amazed by recent reviews saying water was not clear.There is a coral reef about 200 metres out to see which means the water is never rough. Sand is lovely and fantastic for swimming and you could see large fish even a few metres out.My wife was in wheelchair as due to have a hip... More

Not really happy about it. Great sand and wonderful boardwalk with many nice restaurants. But for swimming is not so great. Daily groomed with bulldozers. Water is not clear and mostly wavy.

Romantic, safe, perfect for families with kids too, warm and friendly people, great food with low price, clean white sandy beach, a few degrees cooler than the South of GC, perfect getaway especially when the South is getting really warm with 36+ degrees, Las Canteras can be surprisingly 27 degrees with comfortable breeze. We always escape to this beach whenever... More

We regularly visit this beach and love the cafes and restaurants which cater to just about every taste. The only place where we have been ripped off and felt customer service was poor is the newsagent adjoining the hotel Reina Isabel called Reina Canteras. It's name suggests a connection with the hotel: however, it is not but the front desk... More
