The Beaches of Gran Canaria

Maspalomas Photo Maybe the most beautiful among the fantastic beaches of this island. Fine white sand at a length of 6 kilometers and a width of up to 1 kilometer, and intensely blue sea ... a paradise for sunworshippers, in particular during the cold European winter! There are modern hotel-complexes and sports installations, more than anywhere at Faro de Maspalomas, with the island's most important sports harbour, Pasitoblanco. Along the beach there are several oasis with palms and even a fresh-water lake.

Playa del Inglés Next to Maspalomas, of a length of 2.700 meters. This is one of the most famous beaches of the archipelago, with modern hotels and installations of any kind Photo

San Agustín: Less known than the two foregoing, but quieter and more relaxing. An ideal place to recover from the stress of everyday life.

Playa de Patalavaca: Another great beach with fine sand of golden color. Also ideal for sport-fishing.

Puerto Rico Photo A modern urbanization with hotels, appartments and a nice harbour. Its great sports installations are one of its main attractions.

Costa de Bañaderos: Beautiful landscape with romantical small bays.

Galdar, with a bizarre high coast.

Sardina del Mar, a picturesque fishing-village with nice beaches.

Playa de las Canteras, Photo a wide beach of sand at 2,6 kilometers length, located directly in the capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

Playa de las Nieves: Nieve means snow in Spanish language, and this name comes from the high mountains directly behind this beach.
