  Las Canteras
by Maria_75

On the westside of the city you can find the lovely beach of Las Canteras. It's almost 3 km long, and lined with a boulevard of bars, restaurants, shops, apartments and hotels.

This is one of the most famous attractions of the city. On daytime it's full of life around the beach, and in nighttime the bars and discos take over.

In the south of the beach is the Alfredo Kraus auditorium and Las Arenas shoppingcentre. From here the promenade takes you along the whole beach and up to La Isleta in the north. This was actually an island, but as the city has grown it is now part of the mainland.

Out in the water is a reef where it's very popular to go surfing. On the inside of the reef the water is very calm and perfect for swimming.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
