Popular Pebbles At Puerto de las Nieves

Puerto de las Nieves beach in north west Gran Canaria Puerto de las Nieves beach in north west Gran Canaria

Puerto de las Nieves in north-west Gran Canaria is more famous for its seafood than its beach. A shame, as few realise that the area gets some of the best weather on the island and that PDLN beach is a calm, sunny haven with fishing boats on the pebbles rather than sun loungers.

If you find big pebbles uncomfy, then use the wooden platforms by the old jetty or walk over it to the patch of sand on its left side. Here there's a few palm trees, a bar, and the best view of the west coast cliffs. Don't try and walk round to the remnants of the Finger of God ock: The cliff is unstable. 

Another pebble.-free alternative just north of the harbour is the natural swimming pool complete with lava arches and great sunset views.
