Playa Veneguera

 

Veneguera beach is 370 metres long and sheltered by rock outcrops at each end. It’s mostly colourful rounded pebbles although patches are dark volcanic sand build up at either end during the calm summer months. Taken on its own, Veneguera beach isn’t all that attractive but it is Gran Canaria’s biggest pristine beach and the water is calm and clear. It’s best to visit in late spring when the valley is at its greenest and full of flowers.

Apart from the Gui Gui beach, Veneguera is the second virgin beach in the west of the island. It is considered to be a nudist beach, as there are very few people. Due to its difficult access (you need to go through a narrow valley in the mountain), it is advisable to plan the whole day in the beach.

Veneguera is a long way from help and there’s no mobile phone reception. This corner of the island is one of the last nearly untouched areas of the island. Really worth a visit for all nature-lovers!

To reach Veneguera beach, first drive inland from Puerto de Mogán until you pass Pueblo de Mogán. Then take the left fork and you are on the spectacular GC 200 road that winds all the way to Agaete in the north-west. Veneguera village is about 10 km past the fork. You can get as far as the village on a Line 38 bus from Puerto de Mogán but be prepared for a long walk down the valley; You can’t count on lifts because there’s hardly any traffic on the beach track.

Beach Charactristics:
370 metres long

History
