Gran Canaria Property Area Guide: Playa del Cura

Published in Buyer tips

If you’re looking for a sunny, tranquil place to buy a property in south Gran Canaria that has beautiful sea views and everything within walking distance, Playa del Cura is ideal.

Why Playa del Cura is such a popular property hotspot

Playa del Cura is a peaceful resort with its own natural, sandy beach. It sits in the south Gran Canaria bubble of sunshine and has lots of palm trees and a wide open area by the sea.

It’s a popular spot with property buyers because it is small and quiet but has everything you need for a relaxing holiday or lifestyle. At Playa del Cura you get the peaceful surroundings but are close to livelier places like Puerto Rico and Mogán.

Where is Playa del Cura?

Playa del Cura is just around the corner from Amadores and Tauro beaches as you head along the GC 500 road towards Puerto de Mogán.

It is within easy-walking-distance of Tauro beach and about 15 minutes walk from the beach and restaurants at Amadores. A taxi from Playa del Cura to Puerto Rico resort takes ten minutes and costs less than 10 euros.

What’s in Playa del Cura?

Playa del Cura resort centres around its 400m sandy beach. Aside from a couple of hotels by the beach, most property here is private and owned by a mix of foreign residents, holiday homeowners and locals.

There’s a park by the sea and a small shopping centre with restaurants and a big supermarket between the road and the ocean. Most of the property in Playa del Cura is on the hillsides surrounding the beach but there are some bungalows in the flat part of the valley by the coast.

Inland, Playa del Cura is quiet and natural and the semi-rural property here is private and very peaceful.

The future of Playa del Cura

Because Playa del Cura is built in a small valley it is unlikely to grow much in the future. However, it will benefit from the development of Tauro and the Tauro beachfront. Within a few years, Tauro will have a beachfront promenade and a coastal path to Amadores and all the way to Puerto Rico. This will make Playa del Cura more accessible for walkers but won’t mean an increase in traffic.
