    Beach Playa de Mogan

Gran Canaria is often called a miniature continent with a diverse range of beaches. Nearly 60 kilometres of beaches, out of 236 kilometres of coastline, lie under a gentle sun that seems to have made this island its home.

Gran Canaria offers an endless choice of beaches where you can enjoy all kinds of activities: lazing on a sun lounger, enjoying sports , having a day out with the family, playing and building sandcastles with children, walking in the dunes, enjoying the untouched natural environment.

The pleasant temperatures, clear skies and more than 3,000 hours of sunshine a year confirm that the Islands have the world’s best climate for enjoying the beach at any time of year. The volcanic origin of the Canary Islands has given rise to a huge variety of landscapes. You’ll find plenty to choose from, depending on what you’re looking for and what you need.
