Gran Canaria

An ocean of beaches

Gran Canaria is a little miniature continent, an island close to Europe, with a choice of beaches as diverse as the changing landscapes it hides away. Just under 60 kilometres of beaches along 236 kilometres of coastline, under a gentle sun which seems to have settled here for good.

There are the busiest and best known beaches, such as the large stretch of sands at Maspalomas, a long strip of golden sand that starts out at Playa del Inglés all the way along to the great lighthouse at Maspalomas, around a desert of dunes bathing the southern tip of the island.

Visitors will also find another set of beaches at the south, quieter family beaches, like at San Agustín, the beach at Amadores or the smaller one at Puerto de Mogán.

Alternatively you might prefer the more lively traditional tourist enclave of Puerto Rico, reknowned for having one of the best climates in the country.
