Gran Canaria Beaches

Playa del Hombre

Large dark-sand beach with plenty of space for the surfers to the left and bathers to the right though most locals head to the neighbouring beach and leave the surfers to themselves here.

As with all the beaches in the north the ocean is generally very rough and here there is little protection from the waves. That of course makes it ideal for the surfers that head here. As a rule and especially during the week they have the beach to themselves. 

There's a couple of cafes in the village and a general store and getting here you have to pass a big Mercadona supermarket though on the beach itself there are no facilities.
