Weather and beach surroundings
The weather at Playa De Veneguera is often sunny and warm. This gives me lots of time to enjoy the beach. The beach has a lot of rocks and pebbles, not just sand. You can see bright, round pebbles all over the place! Some parts have dark sand made from old volcanoes.
It’s different but very pretty. There are also large rocks on both ends of the beach that give it some shelter. Being 370 meters long, this place feels big and open too! We’re right next to Playa de Mogan settlement here, about 4 km away from its heart.
I find peace because it’s far from busy cities like Las Palmas de Gran Canaria which is about 47 km away! But one thing to note, we must watch out for rats and bugs if we choose to camp out in tents since they don’t clean up or spray poison regularly here.
Accessibility and transportation
Getting to Playa De Veneguera is a bit of a drive. From the center of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, it’s about 47 km away. You’ll find it near the Playa de Mogan settlement, a short 4.1 km trip from its center.
Be ready for an off-road adventure! The road to the beach is long and made of dirt. If your car has low suspension, this might not be the best route for you. Despite these challenges, reaching this hidden gem is worth every minute!
