Agaete is a picturesque coastal town located just 30 km from the capital of Gran Canaria. With its stunning landscapes, rich cultural heritage, and a range of outdoor activities, Agaete is a must-visit destination for anyone looking for a unique and memorable travel experience.

Some of the top things to see and do in Agaete include visiting the Necropolis of Maipés, a future Archaeological Park that is one of the most important tumulus necropolises on the island. The historic quarter of Agaete is also a must-see, with La Concepción Church and several important cultural centers and town halls. The Tamadaba Natural Park, with its impressive Roque Faneque, is a must-visit for nature lovers, as is the Valley of Agaete, which is known for its stunning beauty and its exotic fruit and coffee plantations.

The Port of Las Nieves is another top attraction, with its Hermitage and Triptych of Nuestra Señora de las Nieves, as well as the iconic Roque Partido or Dedo de Dios. For beach lovers, Las Nieves Beach is a must-visit, with its calm waters, great fishing atmosphere, and delicious local cuisine.

Whether you’re looking for outdoor adventure, cultural experiences, or simply some time in a beautiful and relaxed setting, Agaete has something to offer everyone. So pack your bags and get ready to explore one of the most unique and beautiful destinations in Gran Canaria!

Recommendations for a daytrip in Agaete?

If you’re looking to start hiking from Agaete, heading west towards Guayedra has plenty of good options – more uphill, or heading for the beach. Similarly, along the coast towards Sardina is another option without driving to the starting point. With a car, you could start a hike from El Sao or Risco for more options.

I love the Parque Arqueológico Maipés de Agaete, the native burial grounds. The coffee plantation Cafe Platinium offers a one hour tour and coffee tasting thats very interesting.

Highly recommend hiking from Agaete to Tamadaba. Also Charco Azul is near by. Driving the GC-200 is an adventure on its own.

Swimming? Lots of space and distance at the old pier, more protected in the Agaete Piscina Natural! Hiking? Plenty of options, e.g. southwest in Guayedra, southeast in Valle de Agaete
Food? Fresh sea food near the beach, best breakfast at Hondo!
