Playa del Cura Holidays 2019/2020

Playa del Cura is an idyllic dream where life is lived in the slow lane. The perfect spot to enjoy a relaxing break in the sun, if you're looking for a Gran Canaria holiday where you can enjoy some peace and quiet but still be within walking distance of a large resort like Puerto Rico, this is the place to be.

'Cura' translates to English as 'care' – and the name is perfectly fitting for this lovely resort because it's the ideal spot for rest and relaxation. Whether you like to lounge on the beach, take a stroll on the seafront or enjoy some traditional cuisine, you'll be right at home here.

Soak Up the Sun on the Beautiful Beaches

With an average year-round temperature of 24°C, Gran Canaria is a paradise for sun-seekers.

The beach here is a glorious strip of volcanic sand that gently slopes into the water, attracting locals and tourists alike. Plus, because these golden sands and calm waters often fly under the radar for tourists, there's no need to fight for a sunbed.

If you're looking for a livelier beach spot, then you can also head to the equally glorious Amadores, where the crushed coral beach was imported from the Caribbean. Here, there's a great scuba-diving scene and below the waters, you can spot parrotfish, damselfish and even the occasional octopus.

Hike Through the Beautiful Surroundings

Our All Inclusive Gran Canaria holidays provide you with plenty to keep you busy in the resort. However, if you fancy a trip out so that you can explore your surroundings, you have plenty of options.

This resort is located right on the coast, meaning that you can follow the clifftops right across the seafront trail. From here, you'll be greeted by mesmerising views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Not only is the seafront trail a great spot for those all-important holiday snaps, but you'll also discover a couple of hidden coves along your route, which can provide you with a private place for a break.

If you're a seasoned walker that fancies more of a challenge, take your journey inland and enjoy the mountain-hemmed ravine towards Puerto Mogan. The hills here are not for the faint-hearted, but with proper walking boots and the cooling Atlantic breeze, you'll have no problems at all if you take it steady.

Sample Seafood at a Traditional Canarian Restaurant

The restaurant scene here is relatively low key, but there are several gems well worth trying. There are options to suit even the fussiest eaters, but if you love fresh fish and seafood, you'll find yourself in gastronomic heaven.

As the resort is only a matter of metres from the sea, the seafood restaurants here serve the freshest possible catches. Much like the resort itself, there's a relaxed vibe to food, and the rustic edge to the many restaurants means that portions are often plentiful. Whether you're after a classic fish pie, some simple lemon sole or exotic mussels or prawns, you'll have a wealth of choice.

If seafood isn't your thing, there's no need to panic. Nestled in the hills, you'll also find steakhouses and a traditional Italian restaurant serving fresh pizza and pasta.

Take a Trip to Puerto Rico

The slower tempo of Playa del Cura holidays mean they're perfect for relaxing beach breaks. However, if you're looking for a day away to something a little livelier, you're only a 30-minute walk or five-minute taxi ride away from Puerto Rico.

As well as a great selection of bars, here you can discover three shopping centres that are ideal for picking up treats or souvenirs. Whether you're looking to keep things calm and serene or get the adrenaline pumping, there's an option for you here, from relaxing boat trips to water sports. For families, there's even an Angry Birds theme park to keep the kids entertained for hours on end.

In addition, things really heat up in Puerto Rico in the evening, as partygoers head to the strip with its many bars and clubs – great for dancing the night away.

If you've been looking at our range of Canary Island holidays trying to find a quiet spot where you can hide away and get some peace, then Playa del Cura is ideal. With sheltered places to swim and sunbathe, delicious local cuisine and picturesque walks, there's plenty to see and do. Plus, with Puerto Rico on the doorstep, you're only a short journey away from great shopping and nightlife.
