This is a hidden gem, just off the town centre of Las Palmas. A beautiful stretch of beach with many restaurants on the promenade.

One of the best beaches in Europe, would love to come back. The water always has a nice swimming temperature, and you can find plenty of good places to eat on the promenade.

Playa de Las Canteras is an amazing beach! It has a promenade about 2km in full length. It is very interesting walking the whole way along it seeing different hotels, shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. And, also different sections of beach. At one end is a small harbour with little fishing boats, then a beautiful golden sandy beach for sunbathing... More

This is a great beach for swimming, sunbathing, paddle boarding and even surfing at the right tide. The beach is well used by the locals and there are lounges available to rent. Showers are provided and they even have a ramp and wooden platform to make the beach accessible to those with special needs.

A fantastic golden beach with wonderful swimming however do pay attention to the lifeguards and flags. When the tide is high and over the reef that guards the beach the water can get quite rough and caution is required, however when the tide is out it leaves behind a wonderful lagoon of crystal clear calm water which offers great swimming...
