I am posting this wondering if anyone knows which beaches are now closed if any due to the wreckage of the Oleg Naydenov ship. See this website for information about the spill if your wondering. I will be travelling here soon. This post can be a running list as this event continues.

Tasartico Beach

Guguy Beach

Veneguera Beach

Lo Seco Beach

Tasarte Beach

  • I went ahead and added that to the question list. Thanks again. Feel free to make the edits to this answer yourself as you find more information about the beaches continued pollution or clean up. I dont mind adding them as i see the more news within the comments but they deserve to be put into the answer itself. – Dr. Dan May 3 '15 at 22:58

As quoted by @pnuts in the above comments.

The link has "The regional government of the Canary Islands has not put in place any restrictions on accessing or fishing off the southern beaches of Gran Canaria." ...

Anyway, a better solution for up-to-date information might be to contact admin@ecoturismocanarias.com
