The beach is 370 metres long, but difficult to reach. It has to be reached by an unpaved road, so you’ll have to walk for about 30 minutes along a steep, rocky path.


Veneguera is a hidden gem on the west coast of Gran Canaria, offering an extraordinary experience and a tranquil, natural environment in a spectacular setting of cliffs and mountains.


5. Güi Güi: A secret paradise
