But you can watch out the big wave riders. Galdar Another gem of northern coastline of Gran Canaria, Galdar is home to 400m long sandy beach just beside Sardinia port. What sets it apart from other beaches is the fact that it is guarded from the extreme of the seashore, which makes it a perfect place to get rejuvenated and feel the ultimate serenity. La Laja Situated far off the motorway of Las Palmas, this beach is best for bodyboarding and surfing. Its no-frills charm is worth experiencing.

A beginner may find a good Escuela Kitesurf Gran Canaria (Kitesurf School Gran Canaria) and become a pro! Many agencies offer custom classes to best suit the ability scale of every individual. Maspalomas The best time to visit the place is in summer when the sky is full of kites and winds flow in from the north east. Don’t miss exploring the sand dunes reserve while in Maspalomas.
