  Las Canteras
by Birsen

I love this beach. It is just in the center of the city. Almost all year around you can swim and have sun bath there.

Bordering the city of Las Palmas of Gran Canaria , in the Canary Islands, in the north west and occupying 3800 meters of coast line, you find Las Canteras beach, one of the biggest urban beaches in the world. Protected by its fine sand and rocky reef of volcanic origin and refreshedby alisios winds the best part of the year, it is conserved a natural space of big ecologic value, with a typical subtropical fauna. In the protected water lives a multitude of marine species and rocks that provide the food for the birds native to the island and also for those that migrate.

Las canteras beach with its avenue, full of places of leisure, gives life to the city The water which has marvellous conditions for all nautical sports, specially surfing, with great quality waves appreciated by surfers all over the world.fa

Address: Las Canteras is in the city of Las Palmas
