If you are looking for a quick retail or leisure hit, we recommend a visit to the El Tablero Shopping Centre in the South of Gran Canaria. Situated in the hamlet of El Tablero, the centre holds an easily accessible location right next to the motorway GC1 and overlooks the residential area of Sonnenland.
This centre is smaller than most retail areas on the island, but what it lacks for is size, it makes up for in fantastic opening hours. It is the only shopping centre which is open 365 days a year, giving visitors access to products during national holidays and Sundays, when most other retail zones are closed.
El Tablero Shopping Centre is an Outdoor Shopping Centre!
One of the things we love about this shopping centre is its open-plan and open-roofed design. It is set over three floors, the central area is open to the beautiful Canarian weather and the roof terrace is completely open, giving visitors uninterrupted views over the surrounding areas. The only other similar structure on the island, being the Las Terrazas Commercial Centre close to Las Palmas.
The lower floors of the centre and a portion of the top floor are filled with your favourite outlets, including Zara, Pull & Bear, Stradivarius and Claire’s Accessories. Whilst the remainder of the top floor is filled with food and drink outlets serving everything from burgers to tapas, frozen yogurts & waffles as well as huge BASE sports shop. It’s the perfect stop off after completing your shopping.
In the garage you will find a Car Washing place called GREEN WASH, which can conveniently clean your car in an hour while you have a stroll around the centre, lunch in one of the eateries or shop in your favourite shops. Perfect!
On-site Supermarket for all Your Needs
As well as its great eateries and shops, the centre has a large Hyper Dino supermarket, which is also open 365 days a year, from 9:00am until 10:00pm. Here you can find an in-store butcher, fishmonger, deli counter, bakery and a fruit section, alongside all the other dry goods and drinks sections.
The fantastic location, great opening times, coupled with ample parking, makes this centre a favourite and certainly worth visiting.
