3 Fun Parasailing Experiences in Gran Canaria

by Oliver Stallwood  |  Published June 18, 2024

Parasailing is one adrenaline activity that you don’t need any experience to enjoy – it’s affordable too.


Up there with sun loungers and cocktails with silly names, parasailing is an intrinsic part of any beach holiday. Fun, affordable and accessible, this adrenaline sport doesn’t need any prior experience – you are strapped to a giant parachute-like kite and fly through the air attached to a speedboat. One of the best places to try parasailing is Grand Canaria, with a stunning backdrop of beautiful beaches and rugged mountains rising out of the sea. If you fancy giving it a go, here are three fun parasailing experiences in Gran Canaria. 

Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria : Parasailing

This parasailing adventure takes place in Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria, a holiday resort on the southwest coast of the Spanish island. There are options to have either a 150m line or, for a even better view, 300m. The views from both are incredible, seeing Gran Canaria from a completely different perspective as you fly through the air. The flight is for up to three people and while it only lasts for 10 to 12 minutes it’s an experience you will remember forever – all for less than 40 Euros. Everything is included, from the life jacket to insurance too. From €39.90.

Gran Canaria: 1 to 3 Person Parasail over Anfi Beach

This is another excellent parasailing experience, setting off from Anfi Beach in Los Caideros, south of Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria. The activity starts with a quick introduction and safety review before jumping on the boat and heading out into the blue waters. You will then be lifted gently into the air and for roughly ten minutes can enjoy the serene flight and incredible, unobstructed views of Gran Canaria. The parasail can take up to three people – so you can enjoy this unique adventure with a friend too. A nice touch is that the experience can also be captured by a photographer. From €50.00.

Parasail in Taurito Mogán or Playa del  Inglés

This parasailing experience can be taken at three different locations on the southern coast of the island of Gran Canaria, so you can choose the most convenient for where you are staying. Pick between Taurito, Mogán, or Playa del Inglés and let the experts do the rest, supplying a professional guide, life jackets, insurance and, of course, the boat. Up to three adults can fly together and if you have friends or family who don’t want to fly, no problem, there is room in the speed boat for them to observe. From €57.00.
