Playa del Cura is a gorgeous resort that is situated on the south west coast of Gran Canaria. It provides visitors with a very peaceful, relaxing environment whilst still being in touching distance of its more lively neighbours such as Puerto Rico. The resort is based on steep cliffs and may not be suitable for those who have difficulty walking extended distances.

Playa del Cura is definitely at its most lively and exciting during the summer period that runs from Spring until Autumn. Temperatures tend to reach at least the high 20s throughout these summer months. Prices are usually a little bit cheaper outside of these months from Autumn to Spring while temperatures still remain very mild. However, the majority of activities at this resort are centred around the influx of visitors during the summer, so this is when we would recommend travelling here.
Playa del Cura has two small cove beaches that should be on the top of your to-do list if you are visiting the region. One is called Cura and one is called Tauro and both of them are situated at the base of the cliffs and are covered with a mixture of pebbles and dark, volcanic sand. They both provide plenty of sunbeds too so you can select your favourite beach and start soaking up some sun! The rocky coastline of this resort as well as the valley extending inland provide some great hiking routes for the more adventurous types.
The region enjoys a good selection of accommodation choices including all inclusive hotels with all of your standard amenities as well as picturesque apartments and villas located slightly further away from the beach. The choice of restaurants is also very respectable, with most of them being in the centre of the commercial part of town. Many of the best restaurants specialise in seafood dishes and Bistro 22 is perhaps the most popular place to visit in Playa del Cura.
