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.

    Gran Canaria Tip: What Are The Best Car Hire Companies?

    This is one of the most common questions we get in our Facebook Group (with over 30,000 members) and fortunately, it is an easy one to answer. The Gran Canaria Info admin team and the fans in our Facebook group agree...

    The best car hire companies in Gran Canaria are local ones with desk at the airport and honest pricing policies that don't have any hidden insurance or fuel deposit costs. They just rent you a good car at a good price with no fuss at all. 

    We recommend Mr Car Hire Gran Canaria (Nick); an idependent car rental professional who works with all the main local rental companies in Gran Canaria. This means that he can always find you a good deal.

    Mr Car Hire also offers fully comprehensive insurance on all car rental, three-day bookings, and delively of your car right to your door anywhere in Gran Canaria. 

    We advise all Gran Canaria visitors to avoid booking the cheapest possible car on generic car rental websites or via their flight company because you often end up paying large deposits, extra fuel and insurance costs and all kinds of other costs once you arrive to pick up your car at the airport.
