Playa Amadores is a seaside resort on the south side of Gran Canaria. Together with the resort of Maspalomas, it is one of the most popular locations on the island. Due to its convenient location within the island, it is the best place for beach lounging on the whole island, because here, unlike other parts of the island, it hardly blows at all.

Resort Playa Amadores

Playa Amadores is wedged on a rocky coast. It consists mainly of large hotel complexes and of course the central beach. The beach in Amadores is considered the most beautiful of the whole island.

On the beach

The beach at Amadores is very large, lined with shops and restaurants. It is a popular location not only for tourists but also for locals. For this reason, it is usually very crowded on weekends. The white sand here is not natural, as the natural color of the sand in Gran Canaria is black.

Promenade

From Amadores, the seafront promenade leads to the neighboring town of Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is a small port adjacent to Playa Amadores. Both towns are connected by a promenade and about a kilometer apart. While Amadores consists mainly of hotels, Puerto Rico is more made up of different apartments. At the same time, there is the possibility of greater cultural activities. There are many shops, bars and restaurants. At the same time, it is possible to buy various boat trips or water sports (scooters, banana rides, etc.)

Swimming in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico also has a fairly large sandy beach near the port. This beach is not nearly as nice as in Amadores, but at the same time there are far fewer people.
