Playa de las Canteras and Playa de las Alcaravaneres are two beaches that you should visit when on holiday in Las Palmas. As well as offering you some good old fashioned sun-bathing you can enjoy diving, surfing and many other water sports activities, offering something for everybody depending on what takes your fancy that day.
