Must see in Gran Canaria
Nudist beach in north Gran Canaria
One of Gran Canaria’s most beautiful protected landscapes with spectacular geology, flora, fauna and archaeological sites as well as pretty Guayedra beach and superb sunsets. Close to Agaete town the Guayedra valley is accessed by road from the Agaete Valley. Its dark lava, many palm trees and the spectacular views of the west coast cliffs and across the sea to Teide volcano make the walk down to Guayedra beach a treat. It’s one of the island most attractive nudist beaches.
Swimming close to Agaete with a backdrop of valleys and mountains
Most people walk to Guayedra beach from the west coast road although you can drive some way down a track and even reach the beach in a 4WD vehicle. Many people choose to walk from Agaete although the road is windy and has blind corners. The walk through valleys and over ridges takes you to a beach that is sandy most of the year and has lots of stone shelters. The beach is at its sandiest at low tide during the summer. The sea here can be rough but is normally perfect for a relaxing dip.
Las Canteras beach
In northeast Gran Canaria, right in the capital city Las Palmas, is amongst Europe’s most famous city beaches. It’s appeal is due to its natural beauty, city-centre location and the services and amenities along its promenade. At Las Canteras beach you get calm waters and warm weather all year round: Its natural offshore lava reef acts as a wavebreak and protects the sand and the exuberant marine life that make Las Canteras a top snorkeling spot.
A golden sand beach in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Las Canteras is an ideal beach for long barefoot walks as it’s golden sand stretches for over two kilometres. during the day you can sunbathe by the sand sculptures, rent parasols and loungers or surf at the southern end. Children love Las Canteras thanks to its clear, calm waters, playgrounds and sports zones. The beach is also accessible to all and has parking, changing rooms and showers. At sunset its beachfront terraces fill up and the promenade’s cafés, bars and restaurants are lively into the night.
Güi Güi beach
If you’re in Gran Canaria and moderately fit, the hike to Güi Güi beach is a fantastic trek with a happy ending: A swim in the normally tranquil Atlantic Ocean with views of Teide volcano on the horizon. Legendary Güi Güi isn’t just famous for its beach but for the journey needed to arrive: A two and a half hour hike, with some difficult stretches, through pristine nature with clean air and no crowds.
Swimming at La Aldea with valleys and mountains behind
Access to this west coast beach at La Aldea is via Tasartico hamlet although you can also get to Güi Güi by boat from Mogán or from the harbour at La Aldea. The reward is a refreshing swim in cool, crystal clear waters. Güi Güi beach is at its sandiest during the summer months when the areas fine sand settles.
