Today we are going to discover together Pasito Blanco beach, an idyllic refuge where sea and tranquillity go hand in hand. If you are looking for a coastal destination full of charm and discreet luxury, this is the place for you. Below, we’ll share with you everything you need to know about this jewel in the south of Gran Canaria and the hidden corners of the island. Are you ready? Let’s get started!
Pasito Blanco is within the municipality of San Bartolomé de Tirajana. It is a private residential area with a small port, a beach club called La Punta Yacht Club and a beach. Access by car is only allowed for those who have a boat and its mooring, a residence or are staying in one of its private holiday homes. Therefore, we can say that it is an area that only a privileged few can enjoy. If you want, you can go to the beach of Pasito Blanco, as there are no private beaches in Gran Canaria, you just have to walk there.
Pasito Blanco beach
This beach is not one of the largest in Gran Canaria, it is just 200 meters long. It is characterized by its dark sand and calm waters, making it ideal for families. However, you must bear in mind that from the closest parking area you have to walk about 600 meters to the beach (in case you are heavily loaded). Moreover, keep in mind that the beach does not have any type of service, that is, no sunbeds, no toilets, or showers, and it is not accessible for people with reduced mobility.
In some digital media they also call it El Hornillo beach, although the reality is that all the locals call it Pasito blanco beach.
La Punta Yacht Club
La Punta, as we call it in Gran Canaria, is a kind of beach club where you can sunbathe, have a snack and eat overlooking Pasito Blanco beach. It has a chill out type space, a terrace-dining area and then the solarium with sunbeds for rent. If you want to spend the day in their sunbeds, the price is 15€ / day. The good thing about this beach club in Gran Canaria is that it is one of the few where you can swim in the sea instead of in swimming pools.
As for the restaurant, the food is actually quite good. We recommend you try the moray chips, squid, wrinkled potatoes and salmon salad. Please note that access to La Punta (including the restaurant) is only for members during the months of July, August and Easter from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, for dinners it is allowed. Please note that from November to February they are only open from 10:30 to 18:30. We always recommend booking before you go, as sometimes there are private events.
On the other hand, as shown in the photos, it has a platform where you can take a dip if you go to the bar or restaurant. That is to say, it is not necessary to rent a sunbed. The swimming area is marked off with buoys for safety, as it is an area where boats pass through.
Villas in Pasito Blanco
Pasito (little step) is one of the best places to stay in Gran Canaria due to its safety and tranquility. As we told you at the beginning, to access the urbanization you must pass a security check.
