San Agustín is the first of the beach resorts on the southeast coast of Gran Canaria. The resort lays 30 minutes from Las Palmas airport and quieter than its neighbouring resorts of Playa del Inglés and Maspalomas, San Agustin is a convenient, quiet and relaxing area. A two kilometre black volcanic sand beach has an area well protected from the waves therefore making it a nice beach for families, snorkelling and diving. San Agustin is an accessible resort with good seafood restaurants and medical facilities. This quiet, laidback resort best suits families and couples and those seeking a more relaxed pace of life. It's ideal for getting away from it all but still offers a livelier atmosphere in the nearby resorts of Playa del Inglés and Maspalomas. Enjoy a day out at the local Wild West themed fun park Sioux City - a fantastic fun-filled day for everyone, or visit the local commercial centre for a great shopping trip.
