Known mostly as being the quiet southern town tucked away on the south coast of Gran Canaria Island, San Agustin has more to it than what some may think. One of the brightest stars of the under-appreciated town is its never-too-crowded, dark-gold sandy beach and its relaxed night life loaded with high-quality restaurants serving up some truly amazing culinary adventurous.
Though, it is true that one of the many benefits of staying in San Agustin is its top-notch neighbours: Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas. Those who chose to stay in the more low-key, laid back San Agustin can still take full advantage of the rambunctious night life and vibrant clubs and bars of Playa del Ingles, or travel over to Maspalomas and bask in the majestic beauty of the towns Sahara-like sand dunes.
The laid-back beach life is one of the main draws pulling vacationing families south to San Agustin, as even on the weekends when the locals take to the beach after a long week of work, there is always a lot of space leftover to unfold a beach towel, throw up an umbrella and soak in the nice, hot Gran Canaria Island sun. True to San Agustin fashion, even the water that laps up on the beach is calm, and laid back. Thanks to the shelter created by the cove, the water is gentle, and calm - the perfect situation for exploring everything the underwater world has to offer with snorkelling or scuba diving adventures. Once visitors are finished with the beach for the day, there are some incredible seafood restaurants populating the town that are sure to please any palate. A lot of these restaurants are located on the long and winding promenade that runs from San Agustin all of the way to the dune-heavy beach at Maspalomas.
And if beautiful walks are up you alley, San Agustin has access to one of the Gran Canaria Island's longest help traditions: The Caminos Reales. This is a path that used to be the only way to get around the island, and this ancient pathway that was used by the islands local Aboriginals is still functional to this day, only now it can be found populated by hikers and vacationing wanders making their way around the island, most likely heading towards the national parks, or nature reserves. When it comes to the ease of the walking path it is truly split down the middle of easy and challenging portions, so if you think this is the perfect day trip for you, be sure to head out prepared with the proper attire and equipment.
Truly, San Agustin reaps the benefit of its fortunate placement on the island, one of the top day trips to make when vacationing in the town is the 25 min. hike to Palmitos Park, which is a botanical garden with over 1,5000 exotic birds. A similar distance away, in Fataga, you can visit Mundo Aborigen, which is home to a life-size model of the native Guanche tribe.
