Perfect place to visit

You can have nice walk in the morning, day time and in the evening. You will find a place to sit down to relax, coffee, tea what ever. You must experience it.

Loved staying ther, in an apartment with balcony facing the sea. Arrival promenade with lots of opportunities to sit and eat and drink, whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner.

A long strip of golden sand on the western side of Las Palmas. Clear, clean ocean water. Lifeguards in evidence for the safety of the public. Lovely atmosphere in the evenings as the bars and restaurants along the promenade spring into life. On a clear day you can see as far as Tenerife.

This beach is really long and is lovely to take a nice stroll along, day or night! There are loads of places to sunbathe, you can ride the waves, you can hire a row boat during the day, stand on see through surfboards at night with lights on and observe the ocean wildlife. There are so many restaurants and bars... More

Beautiful, clean, spacious beach, lively and well frequented,but not crowded. The water is clean and clear, and in September it was still a nice temperature to swim. The night time illumination allows for late visits to the beach and night swimming.

This was one of our favourite beaches in Gran Canaria and one of the largest. The only spot we found with good surf (and lots of board rental places), restaurants and bars. It is also next to a large shopping mall, that allows you to park free for 3 hours which was handy

I found out about this lovely beach and area after having an operation at a local hospital and chose here to convalesce. I now always stay at Apartments Playa Dorada. Recently, the apartments have been refurbished, thankfully as they were beginning to look very dated. The only negative thing is that free wifi is only available in reception. 24/7 parking... More
