I'm a beach man - if there's a beach, I'm on it. We never go on holiday without visiting at least one and I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be than on a beach. Consequently, we've visited quite a few and Las Canteras is up there with the best (for me). Long enough to accommodate the people that flock... 更多
Clean beach, seashell based sand. Very calm as it has a reef which stops big swells. Available loungers for all at a small fee. Sea temperate year round. Really chill wind in spring, towards and after sunset so at least a fleece required. Lots of restaurants and shops. Minimal beach seller action, at least in April.
The beach makes a large "half moon" and is surrounded by a boardwalk (brick), with lots of restaurants and bars. The water was very clean and the boardwalk was nice.
the place is very windy and often cloudy. so, despite being very nice looking, it was no good for a proper beach holiday. if you're looking for laying lazily in the sun, choose Maspalomas in the south of the island instead.
It is a delight to walk out of our apartment each day onto the Canteras and walk up to our favourite spot at the end. Coffee at one of the many cafe/restaurants on the way and more coffee and/or wine on the way back later- always with a wonderful view of the beach and the sea. Love it.
It Is a nice beach but very breezy, it was still very busy on our visit. There are various shops, cafes and restaurants around the bay along with a few stalls selling various homemade artiifacts. Nice place but there are nicer beaches on the Island in my opinion.
Very nice. 3 km beach promenade with restaurants and bars. Water looking clear. Unfortunately it was clouded and very windy during our stay so we didn’t use that beach – but had to go south to get some sun.
My impression of Gran Canaria is that it has at least two main vibes. Down south, near Maspalomas, are all the big, touristy attractions, water parks, theme parks, shopping centers, etc. Up north is where the "real people" are. It's very Spanish, but with a complete mix of ages and lifestyles (there's a joyful gay population mixed in with everyone).... 更多
