La Aldea de San Nicolás Map

"La Aldea de San Nicolás" or better known as "La Aldea" is the municipality which lies more west.

Looking on the map of Gran Canaria, San Nicolás lies beneath Agaete and above Mogán.

It has a very uneven surface and the coast parts and small beaches it has are the result of volcanic activity, since almost all of them are either not accessible by land or are the mouth of a ravine.

The town of "La Aldea" itself is a small neighbourhood of about 8400 inhabitants.

La Aldea de San Nicolas is very well known by the canarios for the "Fiesta del Charco". This festivity is a congregation of thousands people in a giant puddle at the "San Nicolás" beach. At 5:00pm the signal is given with a single firework shot, and everybody rushes into the puddle in order to catch the largest fish.

The beach of "Güi-Güí" is also something you shouldn't miss.

The beach of La Aldea de San Nicolas is a very calm place and has exceptional views at the sea, especially with sundown:
