Summary of the Beach Inspectors

The approach to Playa de Arinaga through an industrial area is not particularly inviting at first. But there's good reason why the bay is a very popular leisure destination at weekends and on public holidays. The particularly large promenade with its many restaurants, bars and shops is a real highlight. The beach is also completely wheelchair accessible. There are no particular water sports on offer here, but you can get a real work out in a fitness park on the promenade instead!

Playa de Arinaga - Wheelchair accessible beach with huge promenade

The approach to Playa de Arinaga through an industrial area is not particularly inviting at first. But the bay itself is a very popular leisure destination, especially at weekends. Not only is it sheltered from the wind, it also comes with a large promenade and, as a result, lots of restaurants, bars and shops. The particular highlight is a public fitness park where you can get a real work out!

Playa de Arinaga is easy to find because it is very well signposted. You can park free of charge near the beach and it's easy to get onto the beach and even down to the water with a wheelchair or pushchair. The beach itself is framed by a huge promenade along which you can saunter under the palm trees past shops and restaurants, or even skate on inline skates. It's mainly children that you'll see whizzing about here on roller skates. The supermarket is conveniently situated right on the promenade.

By the water's edge a strip of small pebbles awaits, but this merges into the dark fine sand of Gran Canaria in the water. Whilst there are a few individual stones on the way into the water, you don't need to pack beach shoes, and wheelchair users in particular will be glad of the slightly firmer path down into the water. Even the single wind turbine on the breakwater at the end of the beach doesn't spoil the well-kept scenery or the relaxed mood around Playa de Arinaga!

There are no particular sports on offer here. Instead you'll find plenty of relaxation and a rather quieter crowd. It's also worth mentioning that there are disabled toilets right on the promenade, which is why you'll also find lots of families with children and grandparents here. Some weekends it can get a bit busy, but both the promenade and the beach itself offer enough space for you to withdraw from the crowds a bit.
