In this post we want you to discover Las Burras beach. It is located in the south of Gran Canaria and belongs to the municipality of San Bartolomé de Tirajana. Its sand is golden to dark and is characterized as a safe and quiet beach. In the following lines we are going to give you more details about this little paradise.
Las Burras beach, Gran Canaria
It is a very familiar beach where there is only one hotel a few steps away and the rest are small apartments. It is a neighbor of the famous beach of San Agustín from which it can be reached by a pleasant sea promenade.
At the other side, it borders El Cochino and Playa del Inglés beach, which can also be reached by a promenade. The beach has practically all the services: showers, lifeguard service, sunbeds and beach umbrella rental. In addition, although parking is scarce, it has several parking areas. On the other hand, if you are looking for water sports, better go to other more touristy beaches such as Puerto Rico or Playa del Inglés. However, on the beach there is a small water sports stand where you can specify activity and starting beach.
Las Burras beach could be perfectly within our selection of the best beaches of Gran Canaria. However, it cannot compete with great beaches such as Maspalomas, Las Canteras or Güigüi. In any case, it deserves to be visited.
Finally, you should know that sometimes the beach can be windy. You can look at the wind prediction at Windguru Las Burras.
Restaurants in Las Burras
They have recently opened a beach bar on the same beach named Mao Mao beach. Here you can have a drink and even eat on the front line. Their octopus and calamari are amazing! We show the location of the bar below.
Also, a few steps away, is the San Agustín shopping center where there are supermarkets where you can buy food and drink to spend the day at the beach. Likewise, it has several restaurants that the locals frequent. We highlight the famous Italian Adio Mare known for its sirloin pizzas. There is also the Greek Taverna. Keep in mind that the mall is quite old and touristy, don’t expect great luxuries.
