Puerto Rico beach
What a better way to end a beach day than with a boat party?
This is the first artificial beach of the entire island, it’s located next to the Sports Port and the well-known Beach of Amadores. In addition, there are many options to enjoy youor stay on the beach of Puerto Rico. Since we’ll be able to enjoy the typical sun and beach tourism in crystal clear water, we’ll also have time for party, entertainment with friends in any of its numerous restaurants, commercial center, walks… to its surroundings.
Playa del ingés
On of the most famous and recommended beaches of this island if we decide to do a day in Gran Canaria! It has numerous shopping malls, hotels, apartments and many attractions especially focused on tourism.
Also, the sand of this beach is very thin and has a golden color and it’s a place where you can access through different places. I has the recognition of blue flag. And what is this? Well, this flag indicates that it is one of the highest quality beaches in the country.
Maspalomas Beach is one of the most incredible areas of Gran Canaria, since it has very thin and brilliant sand and spectacular dunes that have a huge contrast with the sea and create impressive views. This is a touristic beach that has a large number of attractions in the southern area of Gran Canaria. Maspalomas is the perfect place for all the lovers of beach and nature that never leave the fun aside.
Located in the southwest of the island, Amadores is a beach of crystal clear water and stands out for its quietness. In addition, it’s not really a beach but a great artificial swimming pool made out of white sand. This combination is great because as far as you can get from the shore it won’t be deep, plus is protected of the wind and the ocean being thus one of the calmest beaches.
