“Spending quality time at the Playa de Las Canteras. It is a great beach for swimming, sun bathing, taking beach walks or having a drink or a meal at the numerous restaurants and various eateries lining alongside the superb beach promenade. It is so brilliant to see enough toilets and showers (completely free of charge) laid throughout the beach”
Point of Interest
“A piece of the Sahara desert that must not be missed. Best views from the Hotel Riu pathway. Warning, ask yourself where the 40,000+ people a day go to the washroom. Island Government has not installed washrooms nor showers under pretense of Natural Reserve Area. No permanent facilities are allowed yet somehow temporary Bar Cabanas and thousands of rental Beach Chairs are everywhere. Can be an amazingly disgusting place if the winds turn from there natural direction of out to sea during the day to inland. wow can the ocean ever smell like a giant toilet. Only saving graces here is the winds blow out to sea normally and the currents flow quickly and away from the beach. High winds can equal instant burn on exposed skin. Area is not for the faint of heart or prudes. Expect real life in all its forms here and enjoy the freedom wallowing in human movement. Paid washrooms exsist. Sadly they are a must for a shower after if you don't want swimmers itch. ”
