If you are reading these lines it is because you want to know more about Aguadulce beach in Telde. It is one of the least known beaches in Gran Canaria. And the truth is that it is something a bit strange, since as we are going to show you below, it is one of the most beautiful.
Aguadulce beach, Telde
Did you know that Aguadulce Beach is one of the few on the Telde coast with golden sand? Surprising. It is also one of the smallest, with only 140m in length. And it is that this beach of Telde is more of a cove. A little paradise with crystal clear waters. However, you should know that the orientation of the beach makes the wind blow frequently here. Therefore, in addition to being somewhat windy, garbage from the industrial zone of El Goro accumulates. Although, we understand that the Telde City Council has controlled its cleaning.
At the same time, you must bear in mind that in Aguadulce there are no services of any kind. That is, there are no toilets, no surveillance, no restaurants, no showers. Likewise, access by car is simple and parking is available a few steps away. However, as it is a virgin area, it is not an accessible beach for people with reduced mobility. To get to the sand you have to go down a small path. This trail is a short walk from the parking lot. In the next photo we can see the dune through which we have to descend on foot to the beach.
Anyway, without a doubt, this area of Gran Canaria is one of those that is worth visiting to discover the most authentic side of the island.
How to get to Aguadulce beach in Telde
Getting to Aguadulce and Tufia may seem easy, but it is not. And it is that from the highway there is no sign that indicates the detour that must be taken to access these beaches. You must take the exit for El Goro and once in El Goro look for the brown sign that indicates Tufia. Ideally, you should use your navigator, Google maps or Waze, as it is quite easy to get lost in the industrial area of El Goro
Keep in mind that on these beaches the telephone signal is very poor and that if you want to spend the day we recommend that you take your food with you. Our suggestions are: a sandwich at Bar Yazmina if you come from Las Palmas or a calamari sandwich at Ojos de Garza if you come from the south of Gran Canaria.
Visit also Tufia beach
On the other side of Aguadulce beach, we find the famous Tufia beach. They are so close to each other that it is difficult to understand how Tufia is of black sand and Aguadulce of golden sand. In addition, in Tufia there is absolutely no wind, so if the neighboring beach is windy, you always have a plan B. As you can see in the following photo, the Morro de Tufia protects it from the wind.
