Playa de los Amadores (playa)
Playa de los Amadores (beach) – located in the southwestern shore of Gran Canaria, this extensive beach is on a bay, well-protected from the ocean, and boasts an 800 meter stretch of golden sand and crystal-clear waters. Peaceful and relaxing, this is a favorite choice for couples looking for a romantic setting to spend a day in the sunshine – so it’s no surprise that Playa de Amadores means lovers’ beach.
Playa de Amadores has been given the prestigious Blue Flag award, an accolade for beaches which have achieved high standards in water quality, environmental education, safety and management. There are shower facilities on the beach and buses run to the resort frequently from most areas and are a cheap way to travel. Inexpensive car parking is also available nearby. In addition, Playa de Amadores is a great vantage point to watch the sun disappearing behind the volcanic Mount Teide on the neighboring island of Tenerife – a truly breathtaking sunset.
