Las Canteras has long been a prestigious Blue Flag beach thanks to its clean water, easy access, facilities and Las Palmas’ commitment to preserving the marine environment (the whole beach area is a reserve).
Now, the 6KM+ walkway that runs from El Confital beach north of Las Palmas, all the way along the Las Canteras promenade and out past Las Arenas to the Mirador del Atlante sculpture has received a new award as a Blue Flag Path.
Blue Path awards only go to walking routes between Blue Flag beaches that contribute to the sustainable use of the beaches and surrounding area.
The entire walk takes a couple of hours and, this being Las Palmas, there are plenty of places on route to stop for a coffee or a cold beer.
