A calm beach in southwest Gran Canaria
Amadores beach is southwest Gran Canaria is a tranquil man-made beach perfect for relaxing in the sunshine. The beach is sheltered by two dykes so its waters are always calm and its white sand full of sun loungers perfect for sunbathing. You can float for hours in the calm waters here as there are no ball sports or watersports on the beach. Watching the sun set behind Teide volcano over in Tenerife is the perfect way to round off a day on Amadores beach.
A disabled-friendly beach close to Puerto Rico
Amadores beach is linked to Puerto Rico resort by a seafront promenade just a kilometre long. Amadores sits in a bay surrounded by hotels and apartments and has had Blue Flag status since 2004 thanks to its quality services: Lounger and parasol rental, paid parking and restaurants and shops right by the sand. Amadores has amphibious chairs, handrails, buoys and everything needed for its disabled visitors to enjoy a safe swim.
Gran Canaria welcomed its first tourists towards the end of the 19th century, when people travelled over from the
United Kingdom to the island, seduced by the generosity of its climate and the incredible curative properties of its waters. The period of transformation society underwent during the Second Industrial Revolution in Europe made
the most thoughtful individuals search for a solution to the problems derived from the pollution and the economic
and demographic changes that were happening. With heart and lung desease rife at this time, people’s skin and
bones found cures in the now extinct spas of Azuaje and Los Berrazales, highy popular at the time.
Those incipient health expeditions planted the seed of an activity taken on board by Eduardo Filiputti, the creator
of a heliotherapy centre in the 1960s right next to the Maspalomas Dunes, considered the precursor to today’s extensive range of establishments specializing in body care and relaxation that exist in Gran Canaria.
The island now has Spa and Wellness centres managed by professionals who specialize in wellbeing and health and
beauty. Treatments with seaweed, sea mud, hydrotherapy, salt baths, aromatherapy, thalassotherapy, massages and
Turkish baths are just a few of the alternative therapies available to visitors to relieve aches and pains, stress and boredom.
