The dramatic variation of natural terrain makes it easy to enjoy a little bit of everything – from lounging on the beach to exploring the leafy mountain interior. World-class hotels and resorts occupy some of the most beautiful spots on the island, while Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is a bustling town with everything you'd expect from the island's capital.

Choose to fly with hand baggage only or pick a price that includes a 23kg checked baggage allowance and free seat selection 24 hours before you fly. Or with Iberia, you can choose hand baggage only, or check a bag for only €15 per person (€30 for each additional bag).

After touching down in Gran Canaria, take a pre-arranged bus service or taxi to your final destination. However, the best way to explore the island is by car - and from the airport terminal it's easy to hire a car and explore at your own pace. We recommend traveling to the north west part of the island, as you will find some beautiful scenery and isolated beaches. Or head south to the beautiful resorts that dot the coastline, including exclusive Meloneres.
Summer is mid-May to October and is hot and sunny most days, with weather remaining mild in winter (from November to April).
