2 Child friendly beaches in Gran Canaria

To the beach with your entire family without worries

There is no shortage of nature and culture in Gran Canaria. The beautiful island is definitely worth a visit and there is always something to do. Gran Canaria has a volcanic origin, resulting in few natural sandy beaches, but there are many beautiful man-made ones. In this blog we would like to highlight two great child friendly beaches, so you can enjoy a carefree day with your family!

Playa de Amadores

Playa de Amadores

If you want to enjoy a day in the sun yourself, but also want to let the children play, Playa de Amadores is perfect for you. This unique beach is located in the south-west of Gran Canaria. With a great sand beach and clear blue water, it is the ideal place to spend your day; just sit back and relax. The beach is surrounded by rocks, which means you are shielded from the wind and high waves. In the bay of Amadores, you find a large jumping park (entrance is charged), where children can play around to their heart’s content. The entire beach is non-smoking and there’s no music played.

After such a wonderful beach day, how great is it to be able to return to the comfort of your own villa? Here we recommend Villa Lagos. We have several types of Villa Lagos in our selection. Theses villas all offer a wonderful large terrace, where you can sit back at the end of the day in a comfortable lounge chair. The villas are a 15-minute drive from Playa de Amadores.

Playa de Mogán

The beautiful sandy beach of Puerto de Mogán is located on the south coast of Gran Canaria. This lovely golden sand beach is perfect for families with children. The beach has a gently sloping seabed and has a play area for children. Puerto de Mogán offers various water sports activities. Love to go snorkeling? Then Playa de Mogán is highly recommendable.

A lovely place to get back to after a great beach day is, for example, Apartment Amarillo. This apartment is located right next to the beach. From your terrace you therefor have an amazing view to enjoy your holiday to the fullest.

A great tip: combine your visit to Playa de Mogán with a boat trip from Puerto de Mogán!
