Where to Stay:
The Loft Apartments are centrally located on the western side of Las Palmas and offer just three lofts, keeping the feel very cozy and apartment-like more than like a big hotel. Despite being a small place, The Loft still offers a rooftop terrace with hammocks, laundry service, and free Wi-Fi. Each room has a kitchen and bathroom. You'll feel right at home while staying in these apartments.
For a fully immersive experience, visit Wavia Hotel (adults only). Wavia goes beyond normal hotel standards by offering photography tours, scuba diving and beach yoga, in addition to tour planning services that let you explore the city on your own. The hotel offers every comfort, from the basics like free Wi-Fi and air conditioning, to breakfast served on the beach and a personal bathrobe. If you're looking for a resort-style hotel, Wavia is the answer.
Just minutes from the Playa de las Canteras, Lua Lua Hostel offers budget-friendly accommodations with private rooms and four-bed dorms. All guests have access to the shared kitchen and living areas, and each room has free Wi-Fi. A highly rated hostel in Las Palmas, Lua Lua is a great starting point for tourists hoping to explore the city.
Things to Do:
The wind in Las Palmas makes for excellent sailing and there are several courses available for beginners to learn how to sail on the Atlantic ocean. With the wind in your hair and the gorgeous waves below, this is an excellent way to see Las Palmas from the sea and enjoy the skyline from a unique point of view.
When you're ready for a break from the wind, head indoors to find out more about a famous Canarian author. In 1843, the Canary Island writer Benito Perez Galdos was born in historic Las Palmas. Casa Museo de Perez Galdos chronicles the 19 years Galdos spent in this house before moving on to Madrid. Guided tours explore the upstairs rooms with a reconstruction of the author's study and various personal items.
Hit the Beach:
Playa del Confital is really an extension of the popular Playa de las Canteras. However, this beach has secluded coves and a more natural feel all the way from the rocks and plants that dot the coastline to the swimmers who prefer to go nude. A bit quieter than Las Canteras, yet still centrally located and easy to get to, this is a great beach to head to after a couple of days at Las Canteras.
Eating and Drinking Out:
Smile Cooking is a cooking club more than a restaurant. Cooking experiences feature countries all over the world and immerse guests by teaching them how to make delicious dishes. A kid's cooking club makes this place a family favorite for experiencing food.
A bright interior and exposed brick wall make Zoe Food a cheerful, fun place to get breakfast or lunch. The cafe menu features vegetarian dishes made from fresh, local ingredients. For any health nuts visiting Las Palmas, Zoe Food is a must-have.
