Hoya del Pozo Beach In East Gran Canaria

Hoya del Pozo beach in east Gran Canaria Hoya del Pozo beach in east Gran Canaria

Hoya del Pozo beach is low-key even by east Gran Canaria standards, but it is clean and a pleasant place to sit in the sunshine.

It's difficult to love Hoya del Pozo as it doesn't have any beachside restaurants or a spectacular view. In fact, most locals would struggle to tell you where it is. However, it's quiet, sunny, has a few palm trees and bougainvillaea bushes, and the water is calm enough to swim comfortably. Like most east coast beaches, it's often blowy.

Hoya del Pozo is just north of the much larger black sand beach at Playa del Hombre but you have to cut inland to get between them; the seafront promenade that connects Hoya del Pozo to La Garita ends at the rocky headland at the south end of the sand. 

Hoya del Pozo has a lifeguard and toilet facilities at weekends and during local holiday periods. The nearest restaurant is just behind the car park but there are plenty more options a kilometre's walk north at La Garita beach. 

To drive to Hoya del Pozo beach, turn off at this roundabout at the north end of Playa del Hombre town. Park right by the beach.
