Pretty Holidays in Playa del Cura
The Canary Islands have long served as an idyllic and iconic beach escape for those in search of the sun, sand and sea, and when it comes to Playa del Cura holidays, you’ll enjoy the best of the coastal scene discovered across Gran Canaria.
You’ll discover this lovely strip of perfection on the south-west coast of Gran Canaria, invitingly clean and quiet, the soft sand and sparkling water will become a common feature of your time on the island. The resort itself is located on the cliff sides surrounding the coastline, providing your stay with mesmerising views across the ocean. The peaceful ambience of this resort greatly contrasts the buzz and vibrancy of neighbouring Puerto Rico, a resort famed for its flamboyance and exciting nightlife and an easy daytrip for those looking to inject some energy into their holidays in Playa del Cura, even if just for one night.

Rejuvenation and relaxation is the name of the game for those heading to the tranquil resort of Playa del Cura, and while many days can be enjoyed chilling on the beach in the sunshine or dining in an inviting eatery overlooking the sea, you can still inject some action and adventure into your trip if you so wish. The resort’s two main beaches, Cura and Tauro, can also provide an arena for water sports such as snorkelling, swimming and kayaking, while an even more vibrant water sports scene can be encountered along the coast at Puerto Rico.
While you may not immerse yourself in too much Spanish culture during your holidays in Playa del Cura, the food will provide a window into Mediterranean ideals, especially the wonderful seafood on offer to those looking for a freshly caught meal.
