The beach of Las Canteras in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is an iconic place to welcome the new year.

At 12.00 am it’s a tradition to have incredible fireworks on this beach and, of course, this year is no exception. We leave you the complete program with the times of the free end-of-year concerts next to Playa de Las Canteras at Saulo Torón Square and Jardines del Atlántico.
