Where is Playa de Amadores and how to get there

Playa de Amadores is just a short drive from the airport and you don’t have to go far out of your way to get there either. You’ll find that it takes less than 30 minutes from the airport to reach this beautiful beach!

You can also walk to Playa de Amadores from Puerto Rico, as it's a lovely walk along the coastline and the entire way is paved and safe. It's actually one of the best walks in the south of Gran Canaria, it's pretty short, it took us less than an hour each way with all the stops for photos.

Playa de Amadores is one of our favorite beaches in Gran Canaria, along with Anfi del Mar, Playa de Mogan and Playa Costa Alegre in Arguineguin.
