This 800-metre stretch of golden sand sits on Gran Canaria’s south west coastline, between Puerto Rico and Puerto de Mogan

Its English translation is ‘Lovers’ Beach’, so it’s no surprise to know that this place is particularly popular with couples. 

While the beach does get busy in the summer months, there’s a blanket ban on ball sports, watersports and loud music, so if you’re after some peace and quiet then you’re in luck here. 

Whilst the beach is popular with couples, it’s also a firm favourite with families too - especially because of the breakwaters in place, which shelter the sands and keep the waters calm and not too choppy. 

As for facilities, there’s a whole heap of beachfront restaurants to dine in, as well as a handful of mini-markets for snacks, drinks and beach equipment, plus plenty of places to park if you’re driving.

And arguably the best feature of this U-shaped seaside spot - the beach has held Blue Flag status since 2004, so you can be assured of its safety and high water quality.
