Probably a good city beach in the big scheme of things, but as far as Canarian beaches are concerned this is bottom of the list in my eyes. It’s Northerly aspect means wind swept, big surf, cold water and not conducive to a safe environment...More

This beach has everything you need : snorkeling , surfing, and plenty of space to sunbathe. There is a great promenade full of bars and restaurants and great for running.

Very nice place, well organised and safe, full of tourists almost the whole year, full of restaurants and coffee shops and supermarkets, clean and close to the main bus terminal, I think it's the best in Las Palmas.

My favorite place in Las Palmas! In the morning its great for jogging, walking and taking sunbath. In the evening its great to have a sit on one of the small cafes outdoors to watch the sunset and people walking by.

It's always very windy there, However if you lay in the sand it's nice and warm. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes so if it's raining or you just want to grab sometimes than it's a right place to be. In the morning there...More

Sorry for delay, I was out of the country. No, the cruise terminal is on the other side of the city. Our city beach has zero pollution and fortunately has a reef barrier which helps its currents and waves. Flags are shown in... More
