Amadores Hotels in August
Apartment Balcon de Amadores
Amadores, and indeed Puerto Rico, has some quirky, smaller hotels to choose from, without having to resort to the larger-style hotels. Apartment Balcon de Amadores is set just five minutes away from the main resort beach, and has a unique décor, and comfortable style. This is perfect for anyone travelling on perhaps a romantic break together.
Along the same lines, Apartamentos Mayaguez is an option to consider. This is an adults-only hotel, which makes it great for those who don't necessarily want a hotel bustling with families and that noise that can sometimes bring. Located towards Puerto Rico, this is a good base.
Beach in Amadores for August
If you like to get out and about and explore, especially on the search for a different beach to your usual resort, then Playa Taurito is a good choice. Located between Puerto de Mogan and Puerto Rico, this nearby stretch of soft sand is like something from a holiday brochure. You'll find plentiful water-sports on offer, including diving and fishing, and it's easy to get to via the local bus service.
This is a beach which doesn't have loud music or excessive crowds, and instead offers tranquil surroundings for a day chilling out in what can only be described as a little slice of paradise.
Bars and Restaurants
Whilst in Amadores, in fact whilst in any of the Canary Islands, you must try some authentic food. IN the case of Gran Canaria, this is Canarian potatoes, often served with a hot sauce. Delicious and certainly something you should try at least once. Most restaurants will have these on their menu, as they are so popular, including Restaurante Zenubia, where you will also find many other Spanish dishes to sample, including paella, which is always better when it includes freshly caught fish.
As the weather reaches higher temperatures, you won't want to be wandering too far for your evening's entertainment, and in that case it's always a good idea to check out entertainment programme your hotel offers. During this part of the year, most hotels in Amadores will have dancing, music, and shows on offer.
Things to do in Amadores in August
Because the sea is so warm in August, it's a good idea to get in it! You can easily find a diving school to help you learn the ropes, and allow you to see some of the colourful and varied marine-life which exists around this part of the world. There are countless companies, including Delphinus Diving School in Taurito, which is very popular for diving and water-sports in general, and Atlantik Diving in Puerto de Mogan too. You will easily see colourful shoals of fish, as well as the odd turtle, coral gardens, jellyfish, and all manner of weird and wonderful sights. This is an experience you won't forget.
If you want to get active, then head to Puerto Rico, perhaps walking along the cliff top from Amadores, and visit Tennis Island, where you can enjoy a game or two of the sport, and enjoy expert tuition if you want to improve your game.
You might be hungry to get out and explore the island a little more, and because Gran Canaria is small, distances are never that great between one destination and another. You can easily hire a car and visit somewhere a little further north, to give you a different overview of the island, and somewhere in the middle you will reach Tejeda. This is a very beautiful area to visit, and is also where the island's highest point is located. This mountainous region is home to a range of flora and fauna, as well as the beautiful Presa de Las Ninas, a natural dam with a handy picnic area.
Visit El Roque Nublo
Also visit El Roque Nublo. This is a 70m tall rock which is easily seen from a distance, and you can walk up to it on an easy walking trail, with amazing views from there.
