Welcome to Playa del Cura

Playa del Cura

Situated on the south west coast of Gran Canaria, about an hour's drive from the airport at Las Palmas, is the small, quiet holiday resort of Playa Del Cura, built on the cliff sides lining the coast. This low-key family resort is just two miles (3km) from lively, hectic Puerto Rico, the island's well-known holiday and nightlife resort, but Playa del Cura remains popular as a peaceful place to stay while granting easy access to the bright lights and amenities of its more flamboyant neighbour.

Playa del Cura is on the main coastal bus route so travelling to other resorts is easy, and taxis are cheap and plentiful. The holiday resort has two small cove beaches, Cura and Tauro, at the base of the cliffs, both covered with dark volcanic sand and pebbles, and strewn with sunbeds so that visitors can make the most of some of the best weather in Gran Canaria. A short distance away is the popular stretch of the Amadores beach. The rocky coastline, and valley extending inland, provides opportunities for those keen on walking excursions. There is a small commercial centre equipped with enough stores, bars and restaurants to provide for all holiday requirements.
