There is a great restaurant right beside the sea where the water splashed up beside you and you can eat the most traditional Canarian food. One of my favourite spots.

This neighbourhood used to be just beside the main port of San Telmo and has long been a fishing port of some grandeur. The people are proud of their fish restaurants. If you like fish, you are spoiled for choice here. There is also a windy beach nearby (Las Lajas) with sheltered rock pools. Surfers take on the great swell but be careful if you are not a strong swimmer. Many have drown here over the years. This area is accessed by a well-kept bicycle trail along the city's prom.

Local owned restaurants and the views from this place is amazing. must try the local fish and their tradicional food taste amazing specially the gravy made with green sweet n hot chilies. which gives great flavour to the meat-fish... salted potatoes and friendly service along the way. excellent experience

The pedestrian access along the shoreline from Vegueta is closed off for construction for a period of 8 months. So, basically you can walk almost all the way there, nearly to the castillo, and then the sidewalk is completely closed off and you have no choice but to turn around and go all the way back to where you came from. No detour signage was offered to pedestrians, just “don’t walk any further this way”…

Good walk along front with some history and fishing boats. Some places nicely done up but a few noisy groups of youths around.

Great place for a morning, afternoon or evening walk or jog alongside the coastline. Fishermen Village is full of colorful old houses and all sort of scents. There are I think 2 restaurants that are very popular with locals serving really good food and cheap at the same time. Alongside the promenade there are remains of Castillo de San Cristobal which was the island's first line of defence back in the past. great time to relax :)

Scenes not expected to be seen in Las Palmas. An old fishermen village in the city. Wild ocean, cute houses, a lot of good fish retaurants with very good prices.

This is a place to visit after you have seen the major sights. One can have delicious at the few restaurants there but I like the one in the middle in a plaza. It is nice to walk along the sidewalk leading to the pools near La Laja Beach. One can get there and back on Bus 12.

This colourfully painted, but slightly ramshackle 'barrio', is easily reached from San Telmo bus station (Las Palmas).
Walking along Calle Marina is sometimes made a little more interesting by the waves pounding the sea wall.
City dwellers descend here at the weekend to get their fresh fish 'fix' - Miramar and Los Botes are fairly dependable restaurants - the later offering outdoor tables by the ocean.
We have only ever visited in the day time in winter, so not too sure if it would have the same allure in the evening.

Fishermen's village in the past with a very chracteristic tower. Nowedays San Cristobal is part of Las Palmas, yet keeps old looks and mentality. Small colorfull houses and distance from the city makes this place unique and perfect location for writers. Very inspireing. where you alway can have fresh fish and sea food. Perfect for a half-day trip
