Gran Canaria

Visit Gran Canaria

Introduction

Like the other Canary Islands, Gran Canaria is blessed with almost-guaranteed good weather year-round. But, there’s more than just golden-beach relaxation. This island icon packs in everything from water-sports and gorgeous mountain hikes to a unique heritage that spans between ancient archaeology and Hispanic charm.

Indeed, if you can tear yourself away from the beach, you’ll be richly rewarded with a lush-green interior. Take it all in with a jeep safari or road trip, stopping off along the way at historic cave dwellings and colonial towns. Las Palmas is a particular favourite for its museums, monuments and lively annual carnival. There are even the undulating dunes of Maspalomas – a Sahara in miniature and vivid reminder that the Canaries are closer to North Africa than Iberia.

Seaside Palm Beach, Gran Canaria

Of course, there’s more than a touch of luxury thrown in for good measure, with plenty of golf courses and spa retreats to choose from. Be sure to focus on sophisticated Meloneras in the south. Not only is the beach pristine, but the fine-dining restaurants are fantastic, the boutiques high-end and chic bars line the gorgeous promenade.

Church of San Juan Bautista, Arucas, Gran Canaria

To help you choose from it all, we’ve picked out the island’s finest luxury offers below:
