Canary Islands Beaches
Maspaloma Gran Canaria, of all the gorgeous beaches in the islands, this must surely be one of the most beautiful, with wide, never-ending stretches of fine white sands, beside a brilliant blue sea.
Playa las Americas La Troya, with sun beds and shades, showers, shops, and restaurants, all within easy reach, this grey sand beach offers just about everything for every need. It has shallow waters where the kids can splash about, coves for a secret rendezvous or two, and the occasional rollers just for fun.
Costa de Banaderos Gran Canaria, this is a beautiful part of the coast with wonderful scenery and little bays. Perfect for romantics.
