Lovely beach
Dec 2020 • Couples
One of my favourite beaches in the world. I love to walk all the beach from one side to another one.
There is a lot of activity around it.

Given it’s size you will always find a place to do whatever you want: relaxing, playing football, taking sun, surfing, swimming, etc.

Clean, spacious, great scenery
Jul 2021
My wife and I went with two of our three kids here. We enjoyed a great stroll in the wonderful weather. It was clean and attractive, plenty of places to grab a drink or an ice cream. We really enjoyed it.

Wonderful to have a beach in the middle of down town! Vivid with people walking there from morning to evening. So many bars and restaurants as well there.

great beach experience
Jun 2020
The beach at Las Palmas is clean and beautiful. There is a natural breakwater, a lave tube, which moderates the incoming waves.
All types of activities are available, as well as informal games, and sand castle building on a spectacular level (google their gigantic Christmas sand nativity scenes.)
Just on the east side of the beach is a promrnade with every kind of cafe, bakery, coffee and gelato shops.

Clean and with the reef, much warmer than average to swim
Jan 2021
This stretch of beach is beautiful, lined with shops, restaurants, bar, beach beds, showers . . at the far end surfing where the reef ended. Lovely walk from one end to the other. Lots of waste and recycling bins. Top quality sand.

Gorgeous long and clean beach
Jan 2020
We visited Playa de las Canteras on a recent cruise call to La Palma de Gran Canaria. This is a gorgeous beach which extends for miles with a walkable sea front promenade. It is clean and well maintained. The beach facilities are excellent and there are lots of cafes, bars and restaurants as well as shopping opportunities.

Fabtastic beach in the city
Nov 2020
The promenade here strtches for abot 3-4km and is awash with reastaurants & bars. It's ideal if you walk it's full length as you will experience all areas of the beachside city.
