The town council of San Bartolomé de Tirajana has commenced stabilisation and beautification work on the slope that supports the Costa Canaria promenade in the El Veril area, above Playa del Cochino, near Playa del Inglés.

Playa del Inglés


Bordered by the beaches of San Agustín in the east and Maspalomas in the west, the 2.7 kilometre long Playa del Inglés lays claim to being one of the most famous beaches in Europe. Thanks to Gran Canaria’s mild climate and the ‘feel good factor’ visitors find here, it is extremely popular throughout the year and it’s also the busiest tourist destination in the whole of Spain.

There are plenty of public conveniences and showers along the beach, as well as kiosks selling cold drinks, ice-creams and other refreshments. People with disabilities will find various access points where ramps go down to the sand.

Playa del Inglés is certified as “one-hundred-smiles achiever”. Such a degree is awarded to holiday resorts visited by thousands of Europeans, to the best sunny spots for hundreds of families over decades. Playa del Inglés can also boast being the perfect beach for your little ones, as it is very wide, with protected areas, and is ideal for fun-seeking children. Plus there is a wide range of shops and amenities in the surrounding area.

Take a stroll along the attractive pedestrian promenade, the Paseo Costa Canaria, which is lined with lush tropical flora and luxurious villas. It runs adjacent to the beach linking Playa de las Burras in the east to the beginning of the Maspalomas sand dunes.

There is a nudist area close to the dunes and a section that is popular with the gay community near Bar 7.

Beach Charactristics:
2.7 kilometres long.
40 metres wide.
Golden sand.
Windy, mild waves.

The area remained largely unspoiled until the 1960s when large scale tourist development changed the resort. Many of these constructions were large concrete tower blocks, however many have undergone renovation in recent years to make them more sympathetic to the surrounding area.
