Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Canary Islands / Gran Canaria / Las Palmas de Gran Canaria / Las Canteras Beach
A barrier reef just off shore of Las Canteras Beach breaks up the waves as the water rolls in and makes for easy swimming. Enjoy the warm sands and calm waters along the 3.1 km (1.9 mi) of beach. This is one of the most popular beaches in Gran Canaria, so you'll have no trouble finding a meal and souvenirs at one of the many restaurants and shops in the paseo marítimo. The large structure at the northeast corner of the beach is an auditorium named after the tenor Alfredo Kraus. A statue of the singer stands proud outside the auditorium's entrance. Plan your visit to Las Canteras Beach and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Las Palmas de Gran Canaria day trip site .

Beautiful walk to spend the afternoon night and walk in the moonlight. It really is one of the best beaches in Spain.
Lovely beach to visit. Nice and clean. Not overly touristy being in the north of Gran Canaria
Beautiful Beach, very clean with everything you need nearby, more wind now at the end of March but very pleasant.👌
