North Sardine Beach
Sardina Beach It is located on the mountainous north coast of the island of Gran Canaria. This beach consists of several small bays. The largest is made of sand, while the smaller ones are more stone bays. The town of Sardina is located on the slopes of the mountain. All the openings are surrounded by high walls and can only be accessed by stairs.
This is where local people and tourists come to discover the fascinating underwater world. With a bit of luck you can see angels and rays in their natural environment while snorkeling or diving. Unfortunately, you can not rent the diving equipment directly on the beach. But only a few hundred meters away in the village there is a diving school. Here you can book diving courses and trips or rent equipment and go on your own journey of discovery. Definitely, Playa de Sardina is the perfect beach of Gran Canaria to practice snorkel Y diving in an authentic beach and not tourist.
When you're not on this beach on a Monday – because it's a day off – you can get delicious Spanish dishes in the lovely restaurants on the beach. On the highest terraces you can enjoy your coffee or your food and see how many divers begin their Submarine excursion here.
The icing on the cake at Playa de Sardina is the sunset. While the beach faces west, you will be offered an impressive view at night, where even you can see the sun disappearing behind the Teide, the volcano of the neighboring island of Tenerife.
Given that Sardina Beach It has not yet been overpopulated by tourists, those who want to immerse themselves in the culture and life of the locals will feel especially comfortable here.
