Lovely beach with all the facilities and caters well for families and those who are disabled. Lots of restaurants to choose from right next to the beach.

Since I last wrote about Las Palmas de Gran Canaria's municipal beach Las Canteras, the local authorities have voted to ban smoking on the beach. This is a bold move as so many residents have traditionally used these lovely sands as an ashtray. But people...More

Because of the local micro climate, the beach was almost never sunny. But at least there are less people then on the other sunny beaches like in maspalomas.

This is a very large beach, wide and deep from sea front to the water. Each morning the whole of the beach had been cleaned and smoothed making it a pleasure to visit. This is obviously a place frequented by locals as well as visitors....More

You gotta love this beach and the boardwalk next to it. It has a lot of charm and character - with lots of cute littel restaurants and cafes alongside the boardwalk. I would consider it to be one of the best city-beaches in Europe.

Sorry for delay, I was out of the country. No, the cruise terminal is on the other side of the city. Our city beach has zero pollution and fortunately has a reef barrier which helps its currents and waves. Flags are shown in... More
