Gran Canaria is renowned for its party island lifestyle, miles of sandy beach and year-round spring-like conditions. Just a short flight from London, it provides a great escape in both summer and winter.
As the third largest of the Canary Islands, it may be small in comparison to neighbouring Tenerife and Fuerteventura, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised by Gran Canaria’s hidden treasures. Its unique and somewhat contrasting scenery combines green pine forests, with rugged mountains and of course, spectacular coastline. Gaze up at the snow-capped peaks as you laze on the beaches below. You’ll be amazed by the timeless architecture of the capital, Las Palmas, which is waiting to be explored and the stunning sand dunes of Maspalomas, a 403 hectare nature reserve.
