Reasons to fly to Gran Canaria

Playa del Cura, the quiet low-key resort of Gran Canaria, is a haven for families looking for a little retreat from the chaos of other island destinations. Travelers booking Playa del Cura flights to Gran Canaria will only drive about an hour to the resort retreat, where two small cove beaches await weary travelers and the rocky coastline offers a fun walking adventure for kids. Located only a couple miles from its booming and bustling neighboring resort, Playa del Cura is the calm to the chaos of the Gran Canaria islands. If the solitude gets too lonely, grab a taxi to the next town for a bit of nightlife and adventure – you can always sleep off the night before in privacy on the beaches of Playa del Cura.

Gran Canaria Travel Information

Book a cheap flight to Playa del Cura and you’ll likely find yourself in Las Palmas, but don’t fret: The ride from the airport to the resort provides lovely views of the local landscape and the rocky cliffs which surround the quiet resort town.

Playa del Cura is flanked with breathtaking cliffs and scenery, which is even more beautiful up close. However, to get to these destinations requires a lot of walking so be conscience of your travel partners: This destination may not be the most comfortable vacation spot for the elderly, small children and others in need of assistance for hilly terrain.

Amadores, one of the best beaches in the surrounding area and located just across the bay, provides visitors with calm waters for swimming and countless opportunities for water sports and sunbathing. For a change of pace from Playa del Cura’s tranquil tendencies, hop a ferry ride to one of Playa del Cura’s neighboring islands. The nearby resort towns feature water parks, vibrant nightlife, and plenty of souvenir-hunting shopping excursions that’ll have you boarding your Playa del Cura flight with full suitcases.
