El Burrero beach is located in the coastal town with the same name, in the municipality of Ingenio. It is next to the airport of Gran Canaria, with what coexists with the traffic of airplanes. However, its coast is very beautiful and there is a good local atmosphere. Below we tell you a little more about this beach and where to eat in the area. Let’s go!
El Burrero beach
The area of El Burrero is quite windy, so its beach too. Therefore, it is ideal for water sports such as surfing, kite surfing and wind surfing. In fact, the beach is divided into several areas: bathing, surfing and windsurfing or kitesurfing.
The part suitable for the bath is the one that is more sheltered by a volcanic rock. Still, you should know that there is plenty of wind on the beach and you should check if it is a suitable day to visit. If you do not come to surf, the best months, due to the absence of wind, are usually those of September and October.
The beach of El Burrero has the distinguished blue flag, that is, an award that certifies its environmental quality, both the quality of its waters, and the number of services it offers. In this case, it has access for people with reduced mobility, showers, services, surveillance and parking. It does not have hammocks, but it does have large wooden tatami to lie on. Also, on the first line, overlooking the sea, there is a good restaurant. It’s La Terraza Club Nautico El Burrero. We’ll tell you next.
Where to eat in El Burrero?
If you are spending the day in El Burrero or you want to get closer to know its beach, a good place to eat is La Terraza Club Náutico. They have views of the sea and the service and their food is very good. In addition, they offer in their menu a wide range of local food: Canarian potatoes with mojo, gofio, local cheeses, fish, octopus, ropa vieja, etc. Below we leave you with some pictures of their dishes.
As you can see in its menu, their prices are not that expensive (sorry that we only have the menu in Spanish). Moreover, the quality and presentation of their dishes is very good. We recommend you to order gofio, calamari and fried octopus. All that we tried was yummy!
