A GREAT CITY TO EXPLORE ON FOOT

Beautiful golden sand beaches

Las Palmas Gran Canaria

Las Palmas is a great city to explore, with great shopping, great beaches and some great restaurants offering fine dining and traditional canarian cuisine.  Its only 20 kilometres from the airport, so a short transfer makes it even more appealing.

Just across the road from the popular, golden sand beach Las Canteras in Las Palmas, is the popular Reina Isabel four star hotel.  Being on the waterfront, most of the rooms have fabulous views of the beach and ocean.

Beaches

Las Palmas is one of the few capital cities of Spain which has miles of beaches, which of course can be used all year round due to the fantastic climate.

The main beach is la Playa de Las Canteras. Three kilometres of golden sand with a lovely promenade, lined with hotels, restaurants, cafes and bars. The perfect place for a spot of people watching! It is particularly popular with locals in the evening.

Shopping

As you can imagine, being a capital city, Las Palmas offers a wealth of shopping opportunities, from up market boutiques to local handicrafts or large shopping malls. There are a selection of weekly markets in the city too.

Historical Las Palmas

Part of Las Palmas was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990 and there is a wealth of churches, museums to visit – or just stroll around the city and head to the historical districts of Las Palmas.
