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. 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.

  • Wonderful to have a beach in the middle of down town! Vivid with people walking there from morning to evening. So many bars and restaurants as well there.  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.
