Southern Gran Canaria is home to the laidback resort Amadores. This holiday destination is famed for its stunning Blue Flag beach which was made with families and couples in mind. Peace and quiet is priority here thanks to a ban on loud music and motorised water sports.
The beach is one of the resorts highlights but it has so much more to offer! Spend a day dolphin spotting, go shopping in the markets or tee off with a game of golf in the sun.
Amadores is adored by families. Children enjoy splashing in the sea as the Blue Flag beach boasts very calm water. There is even an inflatable obstacle course offshore! The resort is also the perfect choice for couples. Afterall, Playa de Amadores translates to Lovers Beach.
Gran Canaria flights from Dublin and Cork operate regularly, so a holiday to Amadores can be enjoyed at any time of year. The flight time is roughly 4 hours 30 minutes and Amadores is only a short 30-minute drive from the airport.
