Playa de las Canteras: A visit to the magnificent 3km Playa de las Canteras stretch of yellow sand is a must. The Paseo de las Canteras – a prominent seaside promenade allows cyclists, walkers, and joggers to traverse the entire beach length. Of course, that’s not all you can also check the fabulous reef called La Barra, which changes the waters of Las Canteras into a giant saline swimming pool that’s perfect for snorkelling during low tide.
If you venture a little further south from the beach, then the restaurants and hotels lining the beach become scarce and the waves become more substantial. You can check out the auditorium in La Cicer, or join the surfers in the water and footballers on the sand.
There are several hotels in the Canary Islands that offer options to sightsee and help to make your trip to the Canary Islands memorable. If you are still thinking about it, then get more information about a Canary Island tour from Kesari Tours.
