Gran Canaria Beaches

Playa de las Mujeres

One of the closest and easiest "remote" beaches to get to, this is my favourite when looking for something with a local feel and none or few tourists.



During the week this is usually a peaceful beach other than the odd dog or two... or three you may find down there. As there's not many people it's a popular nudist beach though swimwear is allowed ;) Week-end can get very busy as many of the residents from nearby Maspalomas, Playa del Ingles and San Fernando head here as it's only a five minute drive past Meloneras, the first beach you find as you pass Pasito Blanco. The beach is also known by the name of Pasito Bea.


Be sure to take food and drink as there's nothing within walking distance, no facilities of any kind down on the beach. As you can see from the photos, it's lovely soft, dark sand.
