The hugely diverse island, off north-western Africa, boasts an array of spectacular landscapes which, with the island’s year-round sunshine, can be admired across the seasons. It’s really no surprise this magical island attracts over four million visitors every year – so what are you waiting for? Book your Gran Canaria villa holiday with Travelopo today and explore one of the prettiest islands in the Canaries!
The mountainous island, between Tenerife and Fuerteventura, boasts around 60 kilometres of beaches along hundreds of kilometres of stunning coastlines. Maspalomas beach is hugely popular, offering soft white sand, crystal 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, family-friendly beach with shallow waters.
Wherever you stay on this magical island, the perfect beach for you will be waiting close by! The winds of Gran Canaria also mean you can take advantage of the excellent windsurfing and kitesurfing spots during your blissful Gran Canaria villa holiday – what better way to cool off from basking under the gorgeous Spanish rays?
Perhaps you fancy exploring the island’s colourful sealife during your villa holiday – Gran Canaria’s brilliant scuba-diving spots are sure to keep the whole family entertained. Surfing is popular across the island and make sure to keep an eye out for dolphins and whales too – some of the waters here are popular dolphin and whale-watching spots!
Why not explore the cosmopolitan capital city of Las Palmas on your Gran Canaria villa holiday? The lively city, located on the north-eastern part of the island, is home to two incredibly beautiful beaches; Playa de las Alcaravaneras and Playa de Canteras. Immersed in Spanish 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 Gran Canaria villa holiday!
Las Palmas also offers an incredible nightlife scene! Plaza de España, in the Mesa y Lopéz district, offers several fantastic venues to start and finish the night. If you seek some adventure after sunset, you’re sure to find some entertainment in the capital city.

Tejeda, which is around 44 kilometres from the island’s capital, is the perfect destination for a hiking, mountain biking or climbing break, with breathtaking landscapes on offer.
The resort town of Maspalomas is another fantastic area of the island, located in the south. The town is known for its vast stretches of sand, with its epic 6km beach, 17km of stunning coastline and rolling sand dunes. The 19th century Maspalomas Lighthouse is must-see here, as a popular landmark known to have been shining continuously for 125 years.
Or why not head to the municipality of Agaete, with its historic centre, pretty green spaces and rocky beaches, offering great scuba-diving spots. Located south-west of Gáldar town, Agaete is home to an array of beautiful, traditional Canarian buildings as well as a fantastic museum and colourful valley.
Maybe you would prefer to explore charming Puerto de Mogán on your Gran Canaria villa holiday? Less than an hour’s drive from vibrant Las Palmas, the picturesque fishing village on the south-west coast of the island offers a fantastic villa holiday destination or day-trip, with its palm-tree-lined avenues, white-washed houses and pretty port.
