The peninsula of La Isleta is located in the northeast of Gran Canaria (Canary Islands, Spain), linked to the rest of the island by the Guanarteme isthmus. This isthmus, once a language of dunes and sands, is today partially buried by the urban development of the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. It constitutes one of the three great peninsulas of the Canary Islands, next to the peninsula of Jandía (Fuerteventura) and the peninsula of Anaga (Tenerife).

This space constitutes one of the most peculiar geographical signs of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. It brings together natural elements of notorious singularity, such as the alignment of volcanic cones resulting from the different eruptive episodes that make up the peninsula. In addition to the eruptive processes, different marine levels and steep cliffs resulting from erosion, which provide a very varied coastal morphology.
