Tiritaña Beach: South Gran Canaria's Pristine Cove

Tiritaña beach in south Gran Canaria Tiritaña beach in south Gran Canaria

Tiritaña beach is like a mini version of Güi Güi; you get the hike through a pristine valley and the deserted beach at the end, but it's all just 15 minutes from the road.

From the GC 500 road, hike down the rocky valley full of grass and lavender bushes. It's not a long or difficult walk, but you do need to use your hands to get over the odd big rock. 

The walk starts about twenty metres east of the bus stop sign. Just hop over the barrier and the track winds down towards the sea. About a third of the way down, keep left or you get to a small drop off and have to turn back or scramble down. 

The ochre rocks at Tiritaña glow in the sunshine and you'll slip and take a wrong turn a few times, but you can't really get lost.  

You never know if Tiritaña beach is going to be sandy or rocky as it changes very day. Arrive at low tide for the best chance of a sandy patch. The water is normally calm and clear and there's great snorkelling by the rocks on either side of the cove.

Tiritaña isn't an official nudist beach but if you have it to yourself, why would you wear anything?

Say hello to the hermit if he's in his tent.
