Las Canteras Beach is located in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the capital of the island and of the province.
Amadores Beach is located to the southwest of Gran Canaria. The bay is 800 meters long and it is known for its deep blue crystalline waters, white sand and the peacefulness which offers to its visitors.
In order to keep this balance of serenity, Amadores is a non-smoking beach and playing balls is not allowed so it is perfect to unwind and recharge some holistic energy.
Amadores was formerly an uninhabited place with huge rocks which were removed to create this magnificent beach that looks like a natural pool. It is surrounded by restaurants with spectacular views serving Canarian cuisine.
