Summary of the Beach Inspectors

We have found one of the most tranquil beaches in the south of Gran Canaria for you: Pasito Blanco. Needless to say, there’s good reason why it is so secluded - it's because there is no public right of way to this public beach! As a result you'll probably have to negotiate a daring climb, unless you manage to get to the beach through the yacht club. You'll be rewarded for your efforts with plenty of peace and quiet and the fine, grey sand of Gran Canaria, which runs gently down into the crystal clear Atlantic Ocean. There's wonderful snorkelling here as well!

Pasito Blanco - Select, secluded and unique in the south of Gran Canaria!

We visited one of the most tranquil beaches in the south of Gran Canaria for you, Pasito Blanco. Needless to say, there’s good reason why it is so secluded - it's because there is no public right of way to this public beach! Pasito Blanco, which was called Playa del Hornillo when the beach was accessible to everyone, is now surrounded by a yacht club to the west, a golf club above the beach and cliffs to the east. Despite all that, we've found out how you can get to this gem of a beach!

Pasito Blanco has a picturesque view of the harbour, full of chic sailing boats and catamarans. Above you you’ll find older people working on their handicap and apart from you, there’s just one young woman plunging into the water in an expensive-looking bikini. Whilst there are no luxury lounges at Pasito Blanco, it still has a touch of exclusivity. This is because the beach is actually intended mainly for the use of members of the yacht club. So our first tip is this - just ask the porter at the gate if he'll let you through!

The second option is to climb down the slope from the golf course, which is not entirely without risk. You can find it by following signs to 'Pasito Blanco'. From the car park you cross the green and begin your descent. You need to be steady on your feet to attempt it though. And if that's not adventurous enough for you, here's our final suggested route: From the neighbouring beach, the very touristy Playa de Meloneras, a hair-raising climb to the west across the rocks between the two bays brings you to Pasito Blanco. The only thing more spectacular would be to jump from a helicopter!

You'll be rewarded for your efforts with plenty of peace and quiet and the fine, grey sand of Gran Canaria, which runs gently down into the crystal-clear Atlantic Ocean here. The width of the beach depends on the tide and you can discover fantastic fish underwater with a snorkel and goggles!
