The paradise island of Gran Canaria is a beautiful destination for your holiday. Whether you’re planning a getaway with your family, a group of friends or intimate break for two, Gran Canaria won’t disappoint. The hugely diverse island is filled with great beaches, stunning scenery and an exciting plethora of holiday activities and excursions.
Check out our four key reasons to choose Gran Canaria as your holiday destination…
1) Lively Las Palmas
The cosmopolitan capital of Las Palmas has lots to offer. The city, located on the northeastern part of the island, boasts beautiful sandy beaches and is filled with culture. You can explore 500-year-old historical buildings in the Vegueta district, as well as popular museums Casa de Colón and El Museo Canario. The vibrant city’s harbour, major cruise-ship port Puerto de La Luz, is also a must-see on your holiday here.
2) Vibrant carnivals
Gran Canaria is a hotspot for carnival fun! The main carnival period runs from January to March each year, with the infamous annual Las Palmas de Gran Canaria held in February. The carnival brings together music, dancing and a variety of skilled performers in bright costumes. With an average temperature of 18*C (and high of 21*C) during this month, you’re sure to stay warm during the festivities!
3) Brilliant beaches
The island boasts around 60 kilometres of beaches along hundreds of kilometres of stunning coastlines. Maspalomas beach is hugely popular, offering soft white sand, clear waters and its own palm tree oasis. Divided into four areas, the beach truly caters for all; from families with young children to nudist beach-lovers! Amadores beach is also great for children, as a calm beach with shallow waters. Wherever you stay on the island, the perfect beach for you will be waiting close by.
As well as its many family-friendly beaches, Gran Canaria offers a plethora of excursions and activities for all ages to enjoy. Whale or dolphin watch on once of Gran Canaria’s popular boat trips, or spend a day at one of the island’s many amusement, aqua or zoological parks. Get even closer to the animals on a camel ride or safari tour. On-land and off-land, with the chance to go on submarine trips and sea treks, your days are sure to be filled!
