San Agustin Holidays 

Escape to the sunny Gran Canaria resort of San Agustín, a tranquil resort with wonderful Atlantic views. A much more low-key alternative to Playa del Inglés, it's great for beach lovers and swimmers, and has long been popular with holidaymakers. Its laid-back feel makes it perfect for couples who simply want to relax on the dazzling golden beaches. Families are close to all the major attractions and waterparks, while adventurers can lace up their hiking boots and head inland or along the island’s stunning coastal paths.

18-24 °C

If you're looking for decent beach weather, book your San Agustín holidays from around May to October. However, even in winter and early spring, it's still pleasantly warm most of the time. Gran Canaria also enjoys a very sunny climate with relatively little rainfall, and winter and spring are ideal times for sightseeing and making the most of the island's beautiful hiking routes.

4 hours and 35 minutes

Fly to Gran Canaria International Airport, which is approximately 27km or 20 minutes from San Agustín.

If you have time and would like to explore more historic sights, head north to the capital of Gran Canaria, Las Palmas. See its museum to learn about its prehistoric, ancient, medieval and colonial past. Visit the Casa de Colón museum to find out about Christopher Columbus’ discovery of the New World, then relax for a while on the golden sands of Las Canteras Beach. Las Palmas is also famous for its cathedral, which dates back half a millennium and is technically still unfinished! The church, which has a mixture of Gothic, Renaissance and Neo-Classical styles, is rich in artwork, and celebrates a huge feast on November 26th to commemorate its dedication.

The beach at San Agustín tends to be much quieter than those of Playa del Inglés and Maspalomas, so it will certainly appeal to you if you really want to relax and get away from it all during your holidays. The golden sands are perfect for sunbathing, swimming or just a simple paddle, and with lifeguards on standby, it's also well suited to families with children. If you fancy a walk, take a slow stroll from here to Playa del Inglés in the evening.

See one of the great natural wonders of the Canary Islands, the sand dunes of Maspalomas, at the southern tip of Gran Canaria. These huge dunes are amazing for snapping some great photos, especially at sunset, and are easily accessible by foot from Playa del Inglés. When you arrive, you'll feel like you've been catapulted to the Sahara Dessert, which, incidentally, is only a short distance to the east of the Canary Islands!

 

Another place well worth visiting during your San Agustín holidays is Roque Nublo, an 80-metre-high rock formed during a volcanic eruption that took place about 4.5 million years ago. Marking the geographical centre of Gran Canaria, this striking landmark, known in English as the Cloud Rock because it's sometimes concealed by clouds, is the second highest point on the island at just over 1,800 metres above sea level. It's also popular with climbers and hikers, although you can enjoy stunning views from the main Roque Nublo road route if you'd prefer a slightly less energetic hike! If you're not hiring a car, don't worry, because you can also get to Roque Nublo by bus or a coach tour from the coast.

Like other resorts in Gran Canaria, San Agustín's restaurants serve many different types of cuisine all bursting with flavour, thanks to the island's cosmopolitan vibe. holiday, try some Canarian rum or treat yourself to a delicious fried squid dish known as calamari. Order some papas arrugadas, fresh potatoes dipped in spicy sauce with garlic, olive oil, red pepper and cumin.
