Beach Playa de Guayedra

27 Jun 2022

Here’s how to get to the Guayedra Beach.

The north of Gran Canaria is characterized by its rugged, wild coastline, full of places and corners hidden from the public. Far from the spotlight of the big beaches of the island, we find one that has a special charm: the beach of Guayedra. It’s also a perfect beach for nudism.

Located within the incomparable Tamadaba Natural Park, just below the Faneque cliff and just 10 minutes from the municipality of Agaete. Guayedra has a high geological value which, together with the flora and fauna, palm trees and volcanic rocks, make it a unique landscape on the whole island. 

As it’s a beach open to the sea, the waves hit its shores hard, so be specially careful when swimming. In fact, our recommendation is that you visit the beach at low tide, as at high tide the wind is very strong.

Playa de Guayedra is also located right at the mouth of the Barranco de Guayedra ravine, where you can enjoy one of the best sunsets on the island, with Mount Teide in the background, if the weather allows it.

Playa de Guayedra is a beach that combines black sand and pebbles, with a length of 200 metres long and 48 metres wide.

You can get to Barranco de Guayedra and its beach by car, bus or by foot. Here’s how:
