Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
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.

  • 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...  more »
  • This is a long nice beach in Las Palmas. Good waves on some of the stretches for surfing! A lot of cafe's and restaurants on the walkway!  more »
  • A great place to walk and feel the local atmosphere. The beach is located very close to the main promenade, which may be a problem for some. The area has a lot of different restaurants with a great view of the beach and the ocean.
  • Very beautiful beach, worth the visit. It can be quite crowded.
