Beach description

A recreation zone 2 km long along the coast is covered with dark volcanic sand. A distinctive feature of the resort is the incredibly picturesque cliffs located on the north side. Luxurious snow-white hotels are lined up and stand in a row, on the horizon you can see the hills covered with single pine trees.

Amazingly beautiful beach has more than developed infrastructure, suitable for any tourist. The entrance to the ocean is sloping, but strong currents are not excluded. It's just a paradise for surfers. The beach is separated from hotels, shops and cafes by a pedestrian crossing. All entertainment venues are located on the territory of hotels. Near the beach there is the only casino on the island.

You can get to the beach of San Agustin from the nearest resorts on a rocky road on foot, by bus or taxi. Transport takes tourists directly to the coast. It remains to go down the stairs to the ocean. Like most of the coasts of Gran Canaria, San Agustin offers an extensive entertainment program. Here you can enjoy water skiing, scuba diving. The most popular extreme entertainment is jumping into the ocean from a bridge.

When is it better to go

In Gran Canaria, warm winters and hot summers reign, however, the weather on the island can vary greatly depending on the chosen vacation spot. In the south, it is always warmer and drier thanks to the mountains that hold back the cold air flow, which is why the main resorts are located there. Summer – is the best time for a beach holiday in Gran Canaria.
