San Augustin Holiday Information
San Augustin is a hidden beach haven, located on the south coast of Gran Canaria. While other parts of the island have been subject to major development work, San Augustin has remained relatively untouched. For many, the result is a highly desirable destination, which manages to keep its small town charm, despite having easy access to a wide range of tourist attractions in the area. It’s a great place to bring children too, thanks to the many miles of shallow beaches, and friendly village atmosphere.
To get to San Augustin, you’ll need to fly to Las Palmas International Airport (LPA). Flights from the UK will take approximately 4 hours 15 minutes, while a transfer between the airport and San Augustin will be another 40 minutes.
