Today I will share with you my Top 10 places to watch the sunset on Gran Canaria. Moreover, bear in mind I picked these locations because they are also perfect at golden hour?

1.    Roque Nublo

This is probably the most popular sunset location due to the amazing views. At Roque Nublo you feel like you’re on top of the world, not only can you see Maspalomas and Las Palmas in the distance, you also have an amazing view of the Teide 🗻 (the highest mountain in Spain which is located in Tenerife).

The urban 3,1 km long beach combined with restaurants and the ocean make this location perfect for a sunset dinner or sunset swim 🏊. 

3.    Dunes of Maspalomas

The dunes are another great sunset location. The dunes combined with the sunset give amazing colours schemes, so perfect for a sunset photoshoot. Also, it’s perfect for a sunset picnic! (Important: Be aware of the new walking paths, if you don’t follow the paths, you could get fined).

4.    Mirador del Balcón

This viewpoint is located at the GC-200. With the dragon tail mountains 🐉 on one side and the views of Agaete and the road on the other. The sunset appears right in front of you which gives you the front row seats. Sit back, relax and enjoy this beautiful gift from Mother Nature

After a day of tanning and swimming 😎 in the natural pools, there is only one perfect way to end it: yes, you guessed it, with a sunset.
