San Nicolás de Tolentino

Playa de Tasarte is a very secluded natural beach in the west of Gran Canaria. The beach is surrounded by steep rocky slopes. The Playa de Tasarte is very lonely and quiet but radiates a great flair. For those who like to swim there, we recommend bathing shoes to get into the water.

White, fine sandy beaches await you at Güigüi Beach. However, these beaches are not to be reached without some effort. A two-hour walk will take you to unforgettable places and bays.

Playa de Cabrón is located in the west of the island. Due to its somewhat hidden location in the bay, the beach is not known to everyone and is therefore not a "typical" tourist beach. It is a rather quiet place to relax and enjoy.

Due to the consistently mild climate, every day is a unique day to sunbathe, frolic in the waves and water of the Atlantic Ocean or simply read a book on one of the beautiful beaches that Gran Canaria has to offer. The most popular beach is the "Playa del Inglés" and "Maspalomas". There, the fine sand is a specialty in itself and the picturesque landscape will give you a feeling of well-being. Also famous are the "Dream Beaches of Güigüi ", which can be found in the west of the island of Gran Canaria. Here it is quieter and not everyone will get to see this breathtaking place, because to get to these fabulous white beaches, a good two-hour walk is necessary, but it is definitely worth it. The way leads through a steep gorge and the destination is an untouched nature that amazes one. For all those who love the little adventure with a great view and are also good on foot, this trip is recommended.

The beach "Playa de las Canteras" in Gran Canaria's capital Las Palmas is a must for all beach lovers. Because here you can combine holiday feeling with big city life. Directly at the beach promenade there are small shops and cafés, which give you a glimpse into the Spanish culture of the island of Gran Canaria. The water for bathing is particularly warm at this beach, as the sun heats up the water in the bay and thus offers a pleasant water temperature for everyone. A unique experience that you can only enjoy in Gran Canaria. You should pay attention to the flag colours that indicate the water conditions. Green means everyone can and may be in the water and let themselves be carried away by the waves. If the colour is yellow, you should be careful, as the water is rather rough and therefore only suitable for experienced swimmers. But due to the mild climate of Gran Canaria's beaches, almost every day is suitable for bathing and swimming for young and old.
