Castillo del Romeral

Castillo del Romeral is right on the southeastern coast of San Bartolomé de Tirajana, the largest municipality in Gran Canaria.It is a short drive of around 9 kilometres from the much larger and busier Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles, and offers a more traditional ambience for your day. It can be reached in around 15 minutes by car – so easy by taxi too if you haven’t hired a car for your holiday.

The name “Castillo de Romeral” directly translates as Pilgrims’ Castle and formerly had its own castle. Today the village is primarily used for fishing, which enables the restaurants in Castillo del Romeral to serve the freshest fish for your pleasure.

The town has a number of natural swimming pools, it’s own football ground, and plenty of beautiful buildings to look at. You must also head to the pier, and watch the fishermen going about their daily business. Perhaps if you can speak a little Spanish – and are self catering, you can haggle to buy some of today’s catch.

The town is particularly popular with caravanners… and this is definitely the place to head to on Bank Holiday weekends. A stroll along the pretty promenade and then a lazy lunch with the freshest of ingredients is highly recommended.

Off the beaten track, this is a fantastic way to get away from the busy towns and to enjoy some real Canarian charm.
