Discovering Gran Canaria Beaches


Gran Canaria beaches usually have a flag indicating how safe it is to swim.

Please bear in mind that there can be strong currents, so you must be careful when swimming in the sea and do not go too far inside, especially if you're by yourself.

Below are all the beaches we have had the privilege to enjoy!

These range from the sandy golden dunes of Maspalomas to hidden, less-known beaches rich in underwater wildlife, ideal for snorkeling and scuba-diving.

We have grouped them according to their location.

This way you'll be able to visit more than one beach if lets says, you decide to go to Agaete for the day.

Some of them are just a few minutes from each other, but you can miss them if you didn't know where they were.
