An old favourite
British holidaymakers have been coming to Gran Canaria, the third largest of the Canary Islands, since the 19th century and it’s easy to see why. The sun shines on its sandy shores practically all year round, all set against a dramatic backdrop of volcanic cliffs. There’s plenty to keep explorers happy too, with gardens, historical sights and natural wonders aplenty.
Beaches in black, white and gold
The island’s beaches come in all shapes, sizes and even colours. Take your pick between sheltered bays and windswept shorelines blanketed in golden, white or black volcanic sand. The surrounding backdrop makes Gran Canaria a picture-perfect spot, with traditional towns, rugged mountains and lush greenery.
Dream holidays for everyone
Whatever your idea of the perfect holiday, Gran Canaria is sure to have a resort that’s just right for you. Playa Del Ingles is built for serious sunbathing by day and hard partying at night. Puerto Mogan is all about sleepy, traditional charm while Meloneras has the five-star market covered.
