Summary of the Beach Inspectors
The somewhat less attractive urban beach of the sweet little fishing village of Castillo del Romeral is mainly a place for families and those looking for some peace and quiet, but it is also a good spot for windsurfing, and even surfing on some days, particularly in winter. Unfortunately you won't find any sports operators here but it's not a long walk from the car park to the beach. We recommend the small, family-run fish restaurant, Cofradia de Pescadores, which serves mainly local specialities. From here you can enjoy a lovely view of the Atlantic completely undisturbed!

Playa de la Caleta - Peaceful beach for happy campers

The urban beach of Castillo del Romeral in the south-east of Gran Canaria is mainly a place for families and those looking for some peace and quiet. The bathing area is protected from the waves by a jetty, where there are always a few fishing boats moored, and even in peak season, the small, flat beach usually has plenty of space for playing on and for larger groups. The setting is not particularly attractive and there is no vegetation or slope to mark the flat transition between the beach and the surrounding area. However, the resort of Castillo del Romeral, with its population of 3000, more than makes up for it. This Spanish fishing village with a good deal of charm and friendly locals is definitely worth a visit!

Between the beach and a few hills on the horizon, there is also a camp site whose guests you will find here on the beach. The rest of the crowd are mainly families from the region, as well as English and Italians, who like to spend the day or even the whole weekend here by the water with the kids and grandparents. As you'd expect, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. But Playa de la Caleta is worth a visit for sports enthusiasts too. Away from the hustle and bustle of the large beaches around Maspalomas the conditions for windsurfing, and even surfing on some days, are very good, particularly in winter. You'll need to bring your own equipment, but this is easily manageable thanks to the large number of places to park right by the beach and by the promenade.

Right next to the car park you'll also find Cofradia de Pescadores, a sweet little blue-painted restaurant. The friendly owner serves delicious regional specialities and fresh fish. From the small terrace of the family-run premises there is a really lovely view of the Atlantic.
