Table of contents
Holidays in Gran Canaria, the island of eternal spring with so much to offer. History, nightlife and incredible nature.
Gran Canaria has enough beautiful nature and fascinating history to keep you occupied for weeks, making it the perfect destination for a holiday. You can choose whether to relax or to explore this naturally diverse destination they call the 'Miniature continent' because of the sheer variety of nature on display. From volcanic craters to snow-topped mountains, sand dunes of Maspalomas and rich forests, every element of the natural world can be found here in some form.
Visit popular tourist spots such as 'Little Venice', otherwise known as Puero Mogan, with its bridges and waterways. Then there's the celebrated Playa del Ingles with its beautiful beach. Both of these are in the well visited South of the island, and the latter is also the best place to experience the nightlife, with bars and clubs aplenty. For a cosmopolitan experience, there's Meloneras, a stylish shopping and eating district which is filled with designer stores and high end restaurants.
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is the capital city, and a historic paradise for the cultured traveller. With its parks, museums and gorgeous architecture, you can fill your photo album with a single trip to this city alone. It even has its own beach in case you need a break from all the intellectual stimulation and need to unwind in the sunshine.
For a resort with timeless class, Playa de Mogan is the go-to destination. With a port, fishing village, marina and stretches of golden beaches, it's far more peaceful than the busy capital, but no less impressive. We recommend looking at our stunning offers in the area too.
Because of its unique positioning 130 miles off the African coast, the weather in Gran Canaria is constantly sunny and warm. You may even hear it described as 'the island of eternal spring'. Even in the winter, it offers pleasurable escape for a weekend or a fortnight away. This wonderful climate, combined with the sheer variety of landscapes and cultural destinations available on just a single island, make Gran Canaria a wise choice if you're planning just a single getaway this year.
With our handpicked offers you can be sure to make the most of your trip to Gran Canaria, and experience the most luxurious accommodation on offer.
