Las Canteras Beach, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

4.6
#1 of 1,092 in Outdoors in Canary Islands
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 .

  • We nipped over for 2 nights to catch some sun. The promenade is fantastic lined with bars and restaurants and a lovely beach  more »
  • Knowing the beach of the quarries for many years, my surprise has been capitalized since the citizenry, after consultation, has opted to declare the beach free of smokes. Great and wise decision of its inhabitants and you can see how clean your beach and its streets are. !! Congratulations!!. It is an experience to swim in the middle of winter in its crystalline water and with an amazing variety of fish.
