Overview

Gran Canaria has an extensive network of dams and reservoirs with a view to making the most of all the rainfall here. However, at present it's at its lowest level since the 1970s, just 17% full. In this context, the Presa de Chira, the largest dam on the island, has lost part of its past splendour, but is still a magical place to spend a few days relaxing. You can reach it from San Bartolomé or Ayacata, as it's half-way between the two, and has a hostel sleeping up to forty people, with food and bath facilities. Camping is also permitted for up to sixty people. The campsite has showers and a bath, and a 15000-peseta deposit is required. For further details, phone the Environment Ministry at the above number.
