This was my 60th birthday I enjoyed the port

We found Las Palmas to be quite sad and dirty. There was a Sunday Market there with a good few stalls.

A great port! World-class beaches, good food, drinks, and shopping all within steps of the port! We spent the day on Playa Las Canteras--a 3 km beach--that's across the very narrow peninsula from the ship's port. Canteras ranged from very calm waters with light-sand and a mixed family-friendly crowd to the north, to a volcanic black sand beach more popular with teens and LGBT further south, and more active waters with surfers at the very southern end. The boardwalk along the beach is filled with tapas bars. The view of the city from the southern point of the beach is worth the 3 km walk.
Excellent tour of the island. Great diversity of sights. Recommended.

The juxtaposition to Lanzarote is amazing. Lanzarote was barren and Las Palmas was very lush and green. We did the highlights tour which we could have done on our own. I'd love to go back in summer and enjoy some of the beaches. Be sure to try to Mojo sauce with potatoes. YUM

Nice port. Very pretty with great restaurants and shopping. Everybody was extremely friendly. We did not do an excursion at this port, but we did go to the beach(Maspalomas), which was very clean and relatively uncrowded. We look forward to our next visit here in November 2019.
Thoroughly enjoyed this port. We used the hop on hop off bus to get a feel for where we wanted to spend a few hours. A few other cruisers we talked to on the ship said they always go to the 'old town' when they visit this port. Sure enough that's where we got off the bus. S.I. Cathedral is amazing. Definitely spend some time there, take in the history from the late 1400s to the present day and take the stairs to the top of the tower. Just downhill from the cathedral by the theater is an excellent restaurant, tasca la Piccadita. Great menu selections but definitely try the waiter's suggestions here.... It's going to be fresh. While you enjoy lunch you are sitting at the edge of the old town and just up the stairs is the street level of the new town and your bus stop for hop on hop off and back to port.
