Playa de Amadores


Amadores is a relatively recent addition to the beaches on offer on Gran Canaria. It is purpose built and somewhat quieter than Puerto Rico which is only a short distance away.


By road, Amadores can be reached either by taking the GC-1 to Puerto Rico and then taking the coast road or else by using the Puerto Rico by-pass at the end of the GC-1 and then approaching Amadores from the other direction. If you are staying in Puerto Rico then you can walk to Amadores using the cliff top path which starts at the Puerto Escala in Puerto Rico. The walk takes around half an hour and presents some spectacular views of the Atlantic.

In Detail

Playa de Amadores The resort is one of the newest in the South of the island. The beach is ideal for children as it is gently sloping and protected from strong waves by the breakwaters. These also serve to keep the sand in place which was specially imported. It is actually made of crushed coral.

To the rear of the beach is a sheltered promenade, lined on one side by bars, shops and restaurants; very handy of you decide to spend a day on the beach. You will find nightlife here quieter than in nearby Puerto Rico but at least you have that as an option as it is only a short walk or taxi ride away.

Playa de Amadores At the far end of the beach, you will find Amadores Beach Club which comprises a sun deck, outdoor lounge and covered restaurant. You can spend the day here relaxing on the loungers and enjoying waiter service. The lounge is open until midnight so there is plenty of time to relax with a drink watching the sun go down.


Most of the accommodation in the resort is no more than a 10 minute walk from the beach. On either side of the beach, on the cliff side are some upmarket hotels whose accommodation offers spectacular views of the resort and the ocean beyond.
