Things to do in Las Palmas
One of the biggest draws for visiting Las Palmas is the splendid beaches on offer but we’ll deal with those a little bit later and instead focus on some sights away from the beautiful coast. A lot of Las Palmas’ most famous culture and heritage is accessible from the city’s old town area of Vegueta. The area has a seemingly endless number of interesting examples of architecture and even it’s very layout sets it aside from the rest of the neighbourhoods. Vegueta’s very narrow streets are lined with bars and classical buildings that give you a feel of the Las Palmas culture of old.
The resort of Playa de Las Canteras is home to many of Las Palmas’ most popular beaches and this strip of beaches is so long that the locals split them into different parts with their own names and even traditions. At the northern end of the resort is Playa Grande, simply translated as Big Beach, and it has a number of coconut palm trees lining its area. It has a spacious sand area and due to an offshore lava reef, some of the calmest waters you’re likely to find in Europe.
Another beach in the area is Playa Chica and it has more of a local and less populated feel. Not a beach for parasols and sun loungers, Playa Chica has open space on the sand and many restaurants overlooking the breathtaking ocean. The beach also has a mini-reef and it is a popular destination for snorkelling. La Cicer is another of the many beaches here and it is one known for its many games like beach tennis and football, while it is also a popular spot for surfing.
