Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria is like a miniature continent, alive with natural beauty, from the stunning dunes of Maspalomas to its volcanic interior.


Gran Canaria's perfect climate makes it a year round holiday paradise. This island offers superb luxury resorts as well as boutique hotels, all presented with high standards of comfort and service. For a completely different different experience, why not stroll through the cobbled streets of Vegueta, the old quarter of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria or climb the scenic roads in the serpentine twists up into the spectacular central massif. From this vantage point, you can see why UNESCO has declared almost half of the island as a Biosphere Reserve.
