Nice place to be both day and night. On a windy day the small boats act as a good windbreak while you are sunbathing.

Plenty of space for sitting or playing beach games, from bat and ball to sailing instruction. Much less commercialised than the Playa de las Canteras.

The Alcaravaneras Beach is Las Palmas city's less attractive beach because it faces the industrial port where many great vessels are moored. Warnings about the water quality here often only reach the local community and sometimes foreign visitors do not realize that the water is...More

This is the second, often forgotten beach of Las Palmas. Definitively Las Canteras is better but an alternative is the later gets crowded. It's easy to access and great for sports.
