Yes, there are several good places to go Snorkeling in Gran Canaria. Starting in the capital, the northern part of Playa de Las Canteras is protected by a bar which forms a big lagoon with plenty of marine life. Coming further South the Marine Reserve at 'El Cabrón' near the town of Arinaga has several places where you can snorkel, although access to the Playa del Cabrón requires a trip down an unmade road. Ask at the local dive centre for directions or advice. In the South of the Island then Arguinenguine bay, Amadores bay, Tauro, Taurito and Mogan all have beaches from which you can snorkel, although there is not as much variety of marine species here as the areas are used by swimmers and other water activities.
