Easy on the Eye

The pretty village of Puerto Mogán is seen by many as being the most beautiful place to stay. Home to ‘Little Venice’, the district showcases gorgeous beaches, lots of restaurants and plenty of bars. The laid-back Playa Taurito, the beach lover’s haven of Amadores and the small town of Arguineguin are also places you can base yourself.

When it comes to accommodation, holidays to Gran Canaria leave you with so many options. Book yourself into one of the luxury beach front hotels in Playa Taurito for supreme sea views and easy access to the beach. There are also hostels, apartments and family guesthouses in the sleepy fishing town of Puerto Mogán.

See the Sights

Founded in 1478, the capital of the island Las Palmas is filled with culture, beaches and historical landmarks. The north-eastern region has some unique offerings such as Canarian lateen sailing and Canarian wrestling, while Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is also home to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Vegueta.

Gran Canaria has so many things to do which will keep holidaymakers smiling. Popular with locals and many European golf enthusiasts alike, Gran Canaria holidays are the getaways for playing golf. There are lusciously scenic golf courses such as Las Palmeras Golf, Anfi Tauro Golf, and Maspalomas Golf. Whether a golf novice or a seasoned player, the island’s eight golf courses will have something for every taste.

With its French inspired gardens and carved stone buildings, the ‘pearl of Gran Canaria,’ Arucas, is great for those who love culture, architecture and food. The stone Parish Church of San Juan Bautista which was built by local Master Masons is one of the architectural delights of the town. The food is super tasty and areas such as San Andres, El Puertillo and Quintanilla are areas that are well renowned for serving up fantastic fresh seafood.

Museums and Shopping

There are plenty of museums in Gran Canaria to go to. Museo Elder de la Ciencia y la Tecnología is the perfect museum for families where it is possible to be amazed by the world of science. Along with Hispanic-Flemish art, Casa-Museo de Colón has a galleon and chronicles Columbus’s journeys. The Las Palmas is a historical centre that will invigorate your curiosity in centuries long gone.

Shopping on your holidays to Gran Canariais time well spent. Market days in Arguineguin Market and Puerto Mogan Market are a real treat for those who will indulge in a spot of haggling. You can find local goods such as decorated tiles, Moroccan plates, elegant wood carvings and eclectic African drums. Foods such as fresh breads, dried fruits and nuts and spices can also be found. If you prefer shopping malls then head to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The capital has 4 large shopping malls, Las Arenas, La Ballena, El Muelle and 7 Palmas.

Surfing

Las Canteras in Las Palmas is one of the most popular surfing beaches on the island with plenty of large waves perfect for surfers. El Confital is a little-known beach in the Las Palmas area that is ideal for surfing and body boarding. As it is so small there are no lifeguards on the beach. El Lloret is a windy beach with a reef that is also popular with surfers. Whatever you get up to, relax in a five star hotel to suit your budget.

Diving and Snorkelling

Las Canteras Beach, although popular with surfers, is also great for snorkelling in the quieter parts that aren't as affected by the waves. There are many great spots for diving in Gran Canaria and there are plenty of diving centres and schools as well as diving operators who hire out equipment.

Cycling

There are many cycling trails in Gran Canaria; Ayaguares Pocket is a 40 kilometre loop trail that rises 550 metres and has a wonderful slow descent. Santa Lucia is a more gruelling trail that runs for just under 70 kilometres that gives a spectacular view of the Grand Canyon. Pico de las Nieves is a trail that is not for the faint hearted. This is a mountainous track best suited for the experienced rider.

Walking

Walking around the vineyards situated on the volcanic hillsides is a great way to experience the rugged landscape of the island. The Venegueras National Park is another great example of the wonderful scenery that is to be found in this magical volcanic island.
