Gran Canaria Holiday Guide

Visit Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria is certainly one of the last remaining European paradise isles. A continent in miniature, it offers lush forests, exotic fauna and flora, Sahara-like dunes, mountains, volcanic craters, the odd flurry of snow on the highest peaks, the most dynamic capital city in the Canaries, incredibly beautiful coastlines and spectacular beaches. And it's all just a mouse-click away... virtually!

The beautiful island of Gran Canaria has a wealth of places to visit, from the north to the south, east to west, it’s all here for you to discover. Whether you are with your loved one, in a group of friends or on a family holiday, you are sure to find what you’re looking for to make your holiday experience memorable and exciting, not to mention relaxing.
The south has some stunning resorts packed with entertainment, bars, restaurants, cafes, shops and nightlife, guaranteed to give you that holiday feeling: the fantastic new resort of Meloneras, Playa del Inglés, Maspalomas, Mogán and plenty more besides. And of course the sunshine helps too!

Meloneras really has the Wow factor. The whole area has been refurbished and finished with such style and sophistication – a very classy place. You can walk along the promenade, shop until you drop in high-end designer stores like Lacoste and Ralph Lauren before sampling cuisine from a whole host of restaurants including Italian, traditional Spanish tapas, sushi and seafood.

Dip a toe in the warm waters at Playa del Inglés and top up your tan on the beach there. It’s full of great places to eat and drink giving you a perfect place to rest and recharge your batteries. By night Playa del Inglés really comes alive. If you like music and dancing, this is the place to be!

The sand dunes of Maspalomas are a sight to behold, stretching out along the south coast looking like giant waves of sand covering around 4 square kilometres.

Picturesque Puerto de Mogán is a very popular destination and it’s easy to see why; with its canal-like channels and quaint bridges is also known as Little Venice.

And of course the vibrant capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, is crammed with culture and history. This is a truly cosmopolitan city located on the north-east of the island with so much to do and see – museums, art collections, fantastic architecture, beautiful parks, great shops, cafés and also the famous Las Canteras Beach, perfect for a cooling dip or a spot of sun-bathing.
