We made a day trip here from Puerto Mogán. That beach is better in my opinion. Yes the sand is darker so you don’t get that crystal clear effect. Even thought the water is clear and you can see fish living in there! You can’t...More

You need to pay for everything: having a chair on the beach, the bathroom, etc. And the restaurants on the beach? These are disgusting and pricey. The beach is great and beautiful but it’s really fancy... too fancy for what it is.

Nice hotels on this stretch of the coastline means that this is a lovely area to stroll around and people watch or enjoy the views.

This is a lovely clean beach. Sunshades are a must which can be hired also sunbeds. Plenty of water sports and bars and restaurants along by th plaza. Usually busy at weekends when many local families visit for the day.

This is my favourite beach in Gran Canaria. The water is very clear and warm and great for swimming in with small children because it’s so calm. There are no waves and it stays shallow for some time. So if your child doesn’t want to...More

Most of the gardens rooms have hedge barriers but can lead to the pools. Children will need to be supervised at all times. There are kids areas but again supervision is essential. Have a great time in anfi.

There is a large variety of water sports available but I am unsure as to the cost. I've seen paddle boarding, canoeing, jet ski, parascending and jet boarding on offer.
