Playa Grande is, as the name suggests, the longest stretch of Las Canteras beach and is the zone that always appears in the tourist brochures.
It’s also the area most popular with foreign buyers as it has the broad sweep of golden sand, the gorgeous beach views with palm trees and Teide volcano on the horizon. Playa Grande is quintessential Las Canteras beach.
While prices here are high (3500 euros per square metre and up for property with beach views), there is plenty of property in the area.
The alternative to frontline property here is the area of El Puerto district just behind Playa Grande beach. Here you have lots of apartments and flats all within easy walking distance of the beach.
