Overview

Bahía Feliz, situated 10 kilometres north of far busier Playa del Inglés, is a small resort by Gran Canaria's standards.  Between Bahia Feliz and Playa del Inglés is the resort of San Agustín.  Formerly a popular windsurfing resort, due to the usual strong winds, the development of a few large hotels has now made this a popular family destination.

Location

The resort is easily accessible from the major north-south motorway, the GC-1.  The island's main airport is around 25 minutes away by road.

In Detail

Though its name means 'Happy Bay', the beach at Bahia Feliz shelves steeply into the water, with tidal conditions that make it unsuitable for children.  It is invariably sunny, but there is often a stiff breeze on the beaches making it an excellent location for windsurfing.  The beach varies in its make up, sandy in some areas but generally it is a pebble beach.  The hotels and other accommodation which string out along the coast are mainly self contained and have their own swimming facilities.

The nightlife tends to be hotel based, while in the resort it is mellow in the extreme: strolling, sipping and romancing tend to be the principle occupations.  Nearby San Agustín and Playa del Inglés tend to be the destinations for those looking for something more lively at night.  Both are within range of a reasonable taxi fare or via local bus during the day.

Accommodation

Acommodation consists of family hotel complexes and other smaller self catering operations.

Attractions

Not too far from the resort you will find the long established wild west themed park, Sioux City.  Up the valley from neighbouring Playa del Inglés is Palmitos Park and the Aqualand Water Park (the largest in the Canary Islands).  Also fairly close is the Mundo Aborigen experience which aims to inform the visitor about the Guanches, the original inhabitants of the Canary Islands.
