A duo of beaches
Playa de Las Canteras is one of Spain’s most popular urban beaches, so it’s great if you love swimming and sunbathing. If you’re looking for something a little quieter, head to El Confital. This rugged, natural beach is famous for its waves, so pop along to watch the surfers out on the water.
The best of both worlds
City meets beach here in Las Palmas, so whatever you’re in the mood for, it will be right on your doorstep. Step straight from the black sands onto a bustling promenade that leads you into the city’s charming streets. Then it’s time to check out stylish boutiques, trendy café-bars and traditional tapas restaurants.
Shop ‘til you drop
From high-end labels to high-street favourites and everything in between, you can find it all here. Prefer to shop like a local and browse the market stalls? You’ll love the indoor Altavista Market with its many stalls selling fresh fruit, veg, cheese and homemade bread.
