Unmissable beaches

Gran Canaria has a huge stretch of 236 kilometres of coastline, but some beaches along this length are more well-renowned than others. For example, if you are renting on the island, you will definitely come to hear about Playa de Maspalomas with its famous dunes. These beaches in between Playa del Inglés and Maspalomas lighthouse are perhaps the busiest and most well-known. Playa del Inglés is large and sometimes windy with many bars, shops and restaurants. For great facilities near your Spanish villas, pick one of these destinations for a day out!

Beaches off the beaten path

For those interested in a more private beach experience, with fewer tourists and crowds, there are plenty of options for you too. Perhaps rent your Spain villas near La Laja, with its black sand on the outskirts of the capital. Alternatively, there is Mogan, which is small and calm, located in a pretty village with beautiful little houses and scenery. Relax at the scenic harbour, or share a meal at a local restaurant. Quieter family beaches also include the beach at Amadores and the beach at San Agustin. San Agustin is a good bet for avoiding the crowds, whilst red cross posts ensure safety. Discover a full variety of beaches by your villas for rent in Spain.

Beach activities on offer

Whether you would like to hang out at a beach-view restaurant, meet locals and share a cocktail at the bar, try some adventurous water sports, explore the local water park or simply kick back and relax on a sun lounger – Gran Canaria is the right location for your Spanish villas. Kids will love the Lago Taurito waterpark by the beach, as well as the paddle boats and mini golf. Meanwhile, adults will love the full range of shops, restaurants and the promenade at bigger beaches like Maspalomas.
