El Confital Beach
Gran Canaria Beaches in Las Palmas Spain

To get to El Confital beach you need carry on walking along Las Canteras beach promenade once you have reached the end of it in Las Canteras.

It's a lovely walk and along the shore where you will find a number of small coves.

Unlike Las Canteras beach there's no golden sand, no hotels, no restaurants nor no café. In fact there are no facilities here and locals want to keep it this was.

This beach is a more of an alternative beach with crystal clear water! It's rocky shore and lack of facilities mainly attracts families who come to have a picnic in the beach and surfers.

The beach actually has some of the best surfing waves you can get. Because of this World Surfing and Bodybording Championships have been held here.

El Confital beach also has a separate nudist area. The area is clearly signposted so you'll know when you get to it.

Along the beach there is a long board walk. And if you carry on walking down the board you get to a dirt track.

We would recommend you carry on walking down this track. It's a virgin protected Nature Reserve and it's really interesting form an environmental and scenic point of view. It also has a number of autochthonous plants and a number of small archaeological sites.

Once you get to the end of the track you'll find a barbed-wire fence. Don't trespass it though as it's a military area.

The two other of Las Palmas beaches are of course…Las Canteras beach and Las Alcaravaneras beach on the other side of the islet close to the Las Palmas port.
