Most visitors to Las Palmas stick to the beach and dont realise theyre missing out on a vibrant city experience that boasts historic sites, colonial architecture and a flourishing food scene. Break away from the pack and take this fun-packed introductory tour and get to know the city beyond the beach. Start your day like a true Canario with a stroll along the famous Las Canteras beach, discover hidden landmarks, squares and street art with a local by your side and learn stories of former residents as you walk. Grab a typical Canario coffee and tuck into breakfast at one of our favourite places that the tourists dont know about. Youll be glad you took the time to discover the city beyond the sand!

Know More about this tour

After meeting your guide at one of the most picturesque squares in town, we'll talk about how Las Canteras has miraculously evolved from a bit of a dodgy place into one of the most beloved beaches in all of Spain.

 Your tour will take a turn inland as your guide introduces you to the local side of this touristy neighbourhood. Well spend some time exploring the modern side of town, which has been heavily influenced by street artists and surfers.

We hope youre hungry because our first stop will be at one of the best breakfast joints in the city to try a typical Canario breakfast. Sample the famous Gofio, which helped Canarios survive some of the hardest times in our history and enjoy a sweet, traditional snack adored by local children. If youre in the mood for more sweet stuff, why not order a coffee leche y leche, which can be found only in Gran canaria?

Your guide will then lead you to the northern part of Las Canteras. Strolling along the promenade, youll pass by statues of famous Canarios, visit the Plaza de Ferray and take a detour to the Santa Catalina Park, where many colourful local events and festivals take place.

Time for a rest! Relax with a fresh juice and a bocadillo at the Mercado del Puerto, where the locals like to do their grocery shopping in the mornings and enjoy a drink and a gossip in the evenings.

After this relaxing stop, well make our way back to the beach promenade and discover La Puntilla, which boasts gorgeous views of La Isleta Nature Reserve. This is also a great place to discuss ecotourism on the island and find out how you can ensure that you are respectful of the wildlife and local communities during your stay on Gran Canaria.

And what better way to finish your introductory tour than with a photo opportunity set against the backdrop of beautiful Las Canteras? Definitely a contender for smug Instagram post of the week!

Before you go, dont forget to ask your friendly guide for more tips on how to get the most out of your stay in Gran Canaria.
