In Las Palmas de Gran Canaria it’s not hard to find public spaces to get some work done. In the South it can be harder though, so today we answer the question: what cafés can you work from?
Recommendations for cafés to work from in the South of Gran Canaria?
Restaurante Los Angeles in CC Gran Chaparral has Wi-Fi and a place to plug in your laptop. Only open later during the day. Very nice people.
My favourite on the island is Restaurante Terraza El Viento in Pozo Izquierdo, you can’t beat the views!
Starbucks next to the Faro (in Maspalomas) and Café Regina in Puerto Rico.
I’d just pick any nice hotel with a restaurant area and sit down and work. As long as you spend some money, everyone is happy.
Try La Colmena Restaurant & Lounge, Alibi Café Lounge and Mr. Kale.
I recommend La Piazza in Maspalomas. Internet speed is around 100-150mb, there’s a side protection for wind/dust and the top is covered so you won’t die under the sun.
Any good coworking in the south?
We Love Coworking (Google Maps) in Maspalomas. I like to work from there, there are some nice people and the vibe is relaxed. I don’t know how it is compared to other coworking spaces, because this is my first experience. It can be a bit loud, because there is a telemarketing company in the next room, and it is a bit messy I think.

I visited Nomad Beach Coworking today. If you don’t know where to look, it’s hard to find (it’s on the ground floor next to Aqua Ocean Club). Very small, no natural light, the club next door was doing sound checks which you could hear very well in the coworking. There was one person working from there, it was his first and last day at the coworking. “But at least the internet is fast”, he told us. I can imagine that when no one’s working from there, it looks closed. Personally, I wouldn’t want to work from there.
Exact same experience here (about Nomad Beach Coworking).
There’s a co-working one called We Love Coworking, but it’s next to a marketing agency, and sometimes it can get noisy, depending on the day. You may try for free one day and check it out yourself.
