Playa San Agustín


The San Agustín beach is a very calm place for those willing to escape and relax. It is totally different from Maspalomas and Playa de Inglés when looking for a peaceful and silent holiday.

The beach is very wide and comfortable for taking sun baths and swimming or snorkeling as it is protected from the ocean currents. Around the beach you can find various restaurants and bars to try local dishes while gazing at the sea.

The beach is about 670 metres long, it has a gentle slope and is well protected against the waves. This creates ideal conditions for snorkelling and scuba diving. There are also some excellent seafood restaurants to be found on the promenade, as well as a selection of cafés, bars and shops. Shower facilities are located just off the beach. Buses run to this resort and there is a car park.

A substantial part of the residents consists of Swedish expats. Important for the development of San Agustín as the first resort of what would later be known as Maspalomas was the Swedish Employers Association’s choice, in the early 1960s, to locate a recreation facility for exhausted managers here. Later the Swedish church and the Swedish school were erected beside.
