Playa de Amadores

One of the most beautiful beaches in the southern part of Gran Canaria. It has plenty car par spaces but might be a bit more busy during weekends. Surrounded with a great selection of bars and restaurants. While waiting for the sunset, don’t hesitate to visit fantastic chillout lounge Amadores Beach club & spa. Walking from the apartment takes only 25 minutes but it is best to commute by car – only 5 mins or a local taxi. If you go by bus it is best to get off at Playa De Amadores but stop.

Playa del Cura

Lovely little bay with darker than usual fine sand. It is usually quiet and calm and therefore very safe for the youngest. The sun is available throughout all day – from early morning to early evening. Sunbeds and umbrellas are available for rent and the beach is close to local bars and restaurants, just 2 minutes away. It is easy to park a car in the nearby car park. Walking from the apartment takes only 16-20 minutes – just remember that it is best to walk first to the end of Playa de Tauro and then take a small shortcut.

You’ll discover that local restaurants serve delicious food, too. Things to remember:

If you go by bus take number 1 or 91, the journey takes 23 minutes and tickets can be bought in the bus. Credit/debit cards are accepted.
