Do you know what “morro jable” means?
During XV century, conquers from the French-Norman region, arrived in Gran canaria and when they saw a sand dune they called it “morro du sable” which literally means “dune of sand”.
As the years passed by we adapted this French toponym to our culture.
It’s possible to admire the best views of Morro jable from the nuestra señora del carmen church which was funded in 1992. The view extends from the entire town all the way down to the lighthouse sided by the atlantic ocean.
Even though the city is tourists oriented, pacing through the historical centre brings back traditional memories that are typical of the quiet town of morro jable. Feel free to walk thrugh old town, sip a coffee or just listen to the waves crash into the shore.
Getting closer to the harbor, sitting by the docks, there are plenty of fishes and manta rays swimming on water surface.
Restaurants in morro jable offer the best fish quality daily caught by our fisherman.
Don’t forget a side of wrinkled potatos, better known as papas arrugadas. You’ll see it’s finger licking good.
