An island of two halves

Gran Canaria is known for its superb year-round climate, brilliant beaches and party lifestyle. But there is so much more to this beautifully diverse island – rugged coastlines, volcanic mountains and verdant forests stretch from coast to coast.

Our flights to Gran Canaria allow you to discover the third biggest Canary Island and their biggest city, Las Palmas. Explore the timeless architecture of the city, including its 15th century old town Vegueta, and discover the maritime history of the Spanish colonies. Las Palmas is also modern and full of culture, with a buzzing nightlife and the beach of Las Canteras on your doorstep. Head south to find remote resort towns which cater for families, like the ever popular Playa del Ingles, or upmarket Meloneras – which is perfect for those looking for a luxury break. Beyond the beaches, you will find unbelievable hiking opportunities, the stunning sand dunes of Maspalomas and truly spectacular views from the snow-capped peaks of the inland volcanoes.

Playa del Ingles
Playa del Ingles.

Down at the southern coast of the island, you find the big resort towns and Playa del Ingles is the largest. This famous holiday resort is home-away-from-home to many European visitors during the winter months, aiming to escape the cold conditions of Britain and Germany, among others. Great for nightlife, you will find the best bars around the Yumbo Centrum and during the day some of the best cafes too. Stay at the wonderful Bohemia for a luxury stay in a beautiful spa.
