Alcaravaneras beach isn’t as long or spectacular as Las Canteras as it faces Las Palmas’ huge container port.
However, it is calm and sandy and great for sunbathing, swimming and beach sports; And it’s the local beach for one of Las Palmas’ best value property zones.
Alcaravaners is just to the south of Mesa y Lopez and is a sprawling area of low-rise apartment buildings and town houses. There are lots of properties here and some really good value to be found, including some lovely old houses with original features such as tiled floors and balconies.
Alcaravaneras is about 15 minutes walk from Las Canteras beach but is close to the Mesa y Lopez shopping stret nd the city’s biggest fruit and vegetable market. It hs some fantastic restaurants tucked away in its side streets.
