Playa de Sardina del Norte, Gran Canaria

Sardina del Norte in Gáldar and its love of the sea

Sardina del Norte in Gran Canaria is opening the first museum devoted to the sea, highlighting the town’s history as the island’s First Sea Port.

The first Marine Classroom is opening in Sardina del Norte in Gáldar. This museum, run by the Canary Association of Maritime Collectors (ACCOMAR), will break new ground by featuring not only the port and maritime history of the town of Sardina del Norte in Gáldar, but also its interesting surrounding area.


El Perchel beach, Arguineguín

The same calm in a whole new Perchel

Remodelling its surrounding area and installing new services makes El Perchel Beach, in Arguineguín, even more attractive.

Peace and quiet bathe in the sea every day in Arguineguín, on the Mogán coast, in the south of Gran Canaria. The tranquillity of these waters is contagious. It sticks to your skin, like gentle salty residue. You can spot the same effect on the gentle pace of bathers as they stroll in and out of the ocean. Or in the conversations on the promenade that ebb and flow with the waves. “The sea looks perfect for fishing today,” say the locals sitting on the bench, as they look out over the immaculate blue mirror stretching out before them. Indeed, it is. In fact, around eleven in the morning, a slow trickle of local fishing boats begins to return to the harbour.


Sardina del Norte, Gáldar

Invisible steps in Sardina de Gáldar

Leave no trace along the renovated promenade in this northern coastal town in Gran Canaria, just take away an indelible memory.

You won’t miss your step along the entire new promenade in Sardina de Gáldar, on the north coast of Gran Canaria. Just let yourself be carried along. You’ll always get to the right place at the right time because there’s no hurry in Sardina - not because the hours don’t matter, but because time literally landed on this coastline sheltered from the pounding of the Atlantic. Boats pulled into the Old Port of Sardina bringing the bells and the clock for the Church of St James, which overlooks the town.


Paseo de Gran Canaria in Firgas

Firgas, the town of water, gofio, murals and music

Although Gran Canaria is surrounded by beaches and a splendid coastline, water is highly valued inland as well. Firgas is not on the coast, although it has its own water-related traditions.

In the north of Gran Canaria, Firgas is a town where water doubtlessly plays a huge part in everyday life. This is not only due to the huge artificial waterfall in the ‘Paseo de Gran Canaria’ as it stretches on from the ‘Paseo de Canarias’, but also its famous, long-standing mill driven using the power of water, and the number of wells, ponds, water conduits, springs, among other features that form part of our landscape.
