The Best Beaches to Enjoy the Good Weather in Gran Canaria in June

We all know that the beaches in Gran Canaria are one of the best reasons to visit the island in June (and pretty much all year round, to be honest), so we want to introduce you to some of the best ones you’ll find on this wonderful island:



Let’s start with one of the most untouched and natural beaches you can find on the island because we know that tranquillity is a precious commodity. On the western coast of Gran Canaria, after a good walk of about two and a half hours (we didn’t say it was easy), you will find a beach with incredible views, few people, and the sea waiting for you. If walking long distances isn’t an option, you can also get there by boat.



This beach is ideal for nudists, as its cove is protected by cliffs, providing cover and incredible natural beauty. Here, you can find the combination of dark sand with the greenery of the Tamadaba pine trees, which is very typical of Gran Canaria’s landscape.

Playa del Inglés

Next to Maspalomas Beach is Playa del Inglés, which is also very spacious, calm, and perfect for families. It’s a sought-after beach for sports such as surfing, bodyboarding, yoga, running, and much more.




This beach is much more touristic than the first two, but it’s still spectacular. Being located in the Maspalomas Dunes Natural Reserve, you can expect that the environment is going to be fantastic. Here, three ecosystems converge: besides the dunes, there’s also the palm grove and the pond, creating a rich and beautiful world. The lighthouse watches over the sea from the heights, reminding us of other times, and adding a touch of mysticism to this beach. It’s a very spacious beach, with essential services for a relaxed day.

Puerto Mogán

Puerto Mogán Beach, located in the southwest of Gran Canaria, is known for its golden sand and calm waters. Nicknamed the “Venice of the Canaries” for its canals and colourful harbour, it offers a variety of restaurants and activities such as snorkelling and diving, ideal for enjoying the sun and local cuisine. The beach is lined with a variety of restaurants and cafes offering delicious local and international dishes, making it an ideal place to relax and enjoy the warm Canarian sun.

Las Canteras

This list wouldn’t be complete without an urban beach because its advantages are many: all essential services and proximity to the city’s leisure options, restaurants, shopping, and much more. Additionally, this is a fantastic beach, right in the capital, offering a landscape that is definitely worth it. It’s an extensive beach where you can rent a sun lounger, let the kids play in the children’s areas, or go diving and snorkelling, among many other activities. It’s a lively beach, but with quieter areas where you can read a book or take a nap.

This is our selection of beaches that you shouldn’t miss in Gran Canaria, but we recommend that you explore the island a bit. You’re sure to find many other gems.

The average temperature in Gran Canaria in June usually ranges between 20°C and 26°C.
