About Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria is only 93 miles off the coast of Africa, and offers its occupants and visitors beautifully warm weather all year round. Like all the Canary Islands, Gran Caneria is of volcanic origin giving the island a unique appearance. Nearly half of Gran Canaria is under protection, such as the Dunas de Maspalomas. Here you will find a spectacular view and gorgeous beaches.

Gran Canaria hosts a generous choice of activities. For those looking for sports and adventure, you will find a range of water sports including surfing, windsurfing, kite-surfing and diving, and for those looking to relax there are plenty of beaches, bars and restaurants. Dolphin tours are also widely available and exciting trip for all ages.


Things to See

Gran Canaria offers some fantastic sites. The island is a hot spot for viewing star gazing due to a cloud phenomenon (known as the "Donkey's Belly") which draws in clouds to a maximum altitude of 500m above sea level which protects the sky from city lights.

The Canary Botanical Garden offers a lovely day out. The rest of the island can often appear quite dry, but at the Botanical Garden you will be able to see an array of stunning flowers and vegetation.
