Playa de Amadores
Beautiful sandy beach - Playa de los Amadores on the south coast of Gran Canaria. Even in January, there were a lot of people ... Tenerife and the snowy peak of the volcano Teide you can see on the horizon.
Black volcanic sand beach of Arguineguin. As usually happens on the black beaches is a lot less people ... you can put a towel there without fear - the black sand does not get dirty :-)
Puerto Rico beach
The southern coast of Gran Canaria is the warmest region of the island. The beaches are in each bay - there is a beautiful golden sand on many of them. Puerto Rico is a small town in the valley. There are a lot of hotels and apartments built on the slopes of hills and hundreds of tourists from around the world on the beach.
Beach - Playa Del Cura
Black sand beach (Playa del Cura) is in the neighboring bay for Playa de los Amadores coming from Puerto Rico to the west in the direction of Puerto de Mogan. It might not be as beautiful as the previous but it is quiet and much less tourists. View photo sphere from the beach.
The beach in Puerto De Mogan
Beautiful beach in a small bay .... but unfortunately, hundreds of tourists ... Although we were there in January in Puerto De Mogan we had a big problem finding a place to park your car.
Beach in La Aldea de San Nicolas
Shingle beach (Playa de la Aldea) on the west coast of Gran Canaria. The small town, beautiful view, the mountains and cliffs, empty beach, a small restaurant with fresh fish - such places we like the most! See spherical image.
Beach - Playa de la Aldea
Only the sound of the ocean, the sun, a light breeze and amazing views ... It was worth going here winding roads through the mountains.
Sand dunes and beach of Maspalomas
The beach at the dunes of Maspalomas. There is a huge rainbow nudist beach at Maspalomas dunes. See spherical picture of the beach.
Beach in Maspalomas
Weather in Gran Canaria in January is perfect for me: 22 - 24 degrees Celsius and a light breeze. You can warm up a little and catch a little sunshine. Sunbathing in January - I like that!
Beach - Playa del Ingles
Walk along the ocean from Maspalomas to Playa del Ingles and back, with swim in the ocean, it is the perfect way to spend a day at the beach.
Playa de El Confital
Beach Playa de El Confital in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. You can even sunbathe in January, but this is not surprising because Las Palmas average annual temperature is about 22° C.
Las Canteras Beach, Las Palmas
Two kilometers long sandy beach in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria - capital of Gran Canaria island. It is one of the most popular beaches in Europe. Along the beach is a promenade with hotels and restaurants, bars and pubs.
