Gran Canaria

With breathtaking scenery, world-class beaches and a fabulous year-round climate, it’s easy to see why Gran Canaria is one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations. Most of the visitors to the island head straight for the resorts of Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles on the south of the island, where miles of unspoilt golden sands a complemented by plentiful accommodation options and a thriving nightlife centred around the famous Yumbo Centre. Sports fans can also practice their strokes on one of the six golf courses on the island, whilst the island’s capital of Las Palmas contains some stunning Medieval architecture as well as a vibrant and modern café culture.
