Playa Amadores Holidays

GENERAL

Overview

Built around what is known as Lovers' Beach, the resort of Playa Amadores is a great place for a romantic break. But by hosting a water park that's actually situated in the Atlantic Ocean, this destination proves a hit with families too. Just a short stroll from busy Puerto Rico, where things are a bit livelier, this is a place to relax and enjoy quiet sunbathing and relaxed swimming knowing that bustling nightlife is not too far away.
Protective harbour walls enclose a perfect curve of soft sand and beautifully calm seas, making the beach great for children. There are no high-rise hotels in Playa Amadores and none of the noise associated with larger resorts, making it one of the more peaceful areas of the Canary Islands . Families are well placed for top Gran Canaria attractions and couples will enjoy the picturesque romance of neighbouring Puerto Mogan.

Places to Go

Theme Parks
Sioux City, a western town complete with fake gunfights and stampeding cattle, is easily accessible from Playa Amadores and a great day excursion. A trip to the nearby Holiday World Centre in Maspalomas will provide big wheel rides and laser gun fights at the laserdrome - a definite must to keep the children happy!

Sightseeing Trips
A trip to the spectacular sand dunes at Maspalomas will take in the 3km stretch of golden dunes, which have a Sahara Desert-like appearance. It's the perfect place to take a camel safari. Alternatively, head over to Puerto Rico for the day and spend the afternoon wandering around the vibrant marina area with its fresh fish and seafood restaurants. Holiday makers can also take trips on glass bottom boats and yachts from the marina area.
