Las Canteras Beach

It is an over 3 kilometers long urban beach. Las Canteras beach has a natural sandstone reef which runs along two thirds of the shore, making the Atlantic Ocean's sea currents much softer.

The reef-barrier's unprotected third of the beach, popularly known as La Cicer (which name comes from the former electrical power plant that used to stand right on the beach many years ago) is the main sports area.  Back on the 70's, this area began to be frequented by the Canary's surfing pioneers and nowadays still remains as the island's surfing Mecca. On its black volcanic sands it is also very usual to see groups of friends gathering together to playing football games as well as beach tennis matches.

This end of the beach is crowned by the impressive Alfredo Kraus' Auditorium, where important concerts and conferences are held every year since its inauguration in the late 90s.

Playa de Las Canteras

You can enjoy a beautiful long walk to the other end of Playa de Las Canteras where the sand is more golden. Peña la Vieja is the most popular among the locals; Playa Chica is a tranquil haven for families to enjoy and the place to be for children; Playa Grande, where sea currents can be somewhat stronger and eventually La Puntilla, with its seafaring soul.

Throughout the entire beach there is also an avenue full of restaurants, terraces and cafes of all kinds for you to benefit from. Avenida de Las Canteras has become a favorite place for amateur runners, who use its 3 kilometers to get fit.

If you come to one of our hotels in Gran Canaria, we recommend a visit to the Playa de Las Canteras in Las Palmas, is just 30 minutes away!
