Gran Canaria Beaches: Playa de Arinaga

Arinaga town has two beaches along its seafront promenade. Both are a mix of pebbles and sand and are best visited at low tide.

We've marked the smaller of the two beaches on our map because it's right next to the town's main swimming area; Even if you are in Arinaga at high tide and the beaches are underwater, you can always swim and sunbathe at the lido area . The town's larger beach is just to the south past the town's old stone jetty.

Arinaga is a sunny if often windy (especially in the summer) town in east Gran Canaria and is one of the island's most improved spots in the last 20 years. The seafront promenade stretches the length of the town nd has several famous fish restaurants (by the jetty and at the far northern tip by the lime kilm museum).

While we wouldn't reccomend coming to Arinaga just to visit the beach, it's a good option for an afternoon swim after visiting the Guayadeque valley or for a seafood lunch afer diving at El Cabrón.
