Every Gran Canaria Beach

Every Gran Canaria Beach

Welcome to the Ultimate Guide To Gran Canaria's beaches. Whether you love the wild beach and dunes at Maspalomas, the beautiful Caribbean white sand at Anfi beach, the resort beaches at Puerto Rico and San Agustín, or the urban splendour of Las Canteras beach in Las Palmas, this is the place to find all the info you need to enjoy the beach in Gran Canaria. 

This guide covers all the beaches in Gran Canaria, from busy Playa del Inglés and Puerto de Mogán to hidden beaches that even the locals don't know about. We've photographed them all, even hiking down to remote Güi Güi and Faneroque on the west coast. 

Each beach comes with detailed information about the type of sand, occupancy level, access, parking and even our exclusive hippy rating. You can even locate each beach on our useful Gran Canaria beach map.

For information about Gran Canaria's famous nudist beaches, read our guide or download the Dare To Bare: Nudist Beaches Of Gran Canaria book.

A well hidden beach that you have to know to be able to find it. Easiest way to get there is to drive to the harbour of La Aldea. Park somewhere and look for a sign that shows you the way to the beach. if you look well at the…
Contrary to popular belief and what most guidebooks say, there are sandy beaches in north Gran Canaria and Bocabarranco is one of them.
Thought west Gran Canaria didn't have any golden-sand beaches? Well, it's got one. Trouble is, it's 25 metres above the sea.
El Risco beach is 400 metres long and is a mixture of pebbles and large stones although you do get some black sand at low tide during the summer and autumn.
Tasarte beach is old school south Gran Canaria and isn’t going anywhere. It's a long drive but when you arrive, it's like Playa del Inglés never even existed.
Playa Triana is one of south Gran Canaria's quietest beaches even though it has calm water and beautiful sunsets.
Playa de Vargas is where windsurfers go to practise their wave skills and camp right by the water but on the right day, you can sunbathe and swim in comfort.
El Perchel beach is currently only used by surfers when the famous Arguineguín wave is firing, but plans are afoot for the area.
Lomo Galeón beach is a short but wide pebble beach just east of El Pajar village in south Gran Canaria.
Arinaga town has two beaches along its seafront promenade. Both are a mix of pebbles and sand and are best visited at low tide.
Los Carpinteros isn't a beach you choose on looks but it does have easy access for campers and has low-key charm and crystal clear water.
When developers announced plans to build a vast resort in the Veneguera valley in south-west Gran Canaria all hell broke loose. To general surprise, protests won the day.
Maspalomas has its own palm tree oasis, lagoon and sand dune system. It's basically a miniature desert by the sea rather than a beach. It even has camels (which you can ride) but unlike a desert, there are convenient snack stands, comfy sun loungers and trained lifeguards.
With a beachfront promenade, white ballustrades, palm trees shading the sand and plenty of places to eat and drink close by, Salinetas beach is the most complete on the east coast.
Pasito Beach beach is one of the quietest in south Gran Canaria despite its turquoise water and fine sand.
Nudist Montaña de Arena is one of Gran Canaria's legendary wild beaches along with GüiGüi, Guayedra and El Confital. However, it's surprisingly accessible as it's right between the island's main resorts.
Sandy Playa del Cura beach is where the people who work in south Gran Canaria, local and guiri, go at the weekends. 
Soft, sand, tonnes of room and plenty of sunshine: There has to be a reason why Playa del Hombre beach on the Telde coast isn't more popular.
Burrero beach must be one of the least known and visited beaches in Gran Canaria even though the sandy north end is sheltered and ever-so-pretty.
