Las Canteras, urban luxury
The citizens of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria consider it a luxury to have this beach in the very heart of the city. It really is. During the whole year the ambience is incredible, on the proper beach as much as on the avenue. It is a real pleasure to go for a walk on this coast during any season.
You will always find all kinds of people enjoying the wide offer of entertainment, restaurants and bars of the area.
If you want to get to know the real culture and personality of the island's inhabitants, this is without any doubt the best place.
It is a 3 km long beach, full of sunlight and sheltered from the wind, with golden sand and twilights that are a real event that you should not miss.
In the west extreme you will see a bronze statue dedicated to one of the most famous Gran Canarian people of all times: the tenor Alfredo Kraus. This monument is found in the gardens close to the auditorium of the city, which bears the name of the tenor. This is an emblematic fortress where international shows of maximum level are celebrated.
