Gran Canaria Holiday Guide

Gran Canaria is a great place for those looking of a relaxing holiday of sun, sea and sand. Visit the multiple major beaches and lookout points along the Gran Canaria and relax with locals and tourists along the coast. Maspalomas Beach and Amadores Beach are two of the most popular spots for a little sun-soothed unwinding with a beautiful blue sea to cool down in. Other fine beaches worth checking out are Meloneras Beach and Playa de San Agustin.

Take advantage of Gran Canaria’s reputation as a great place to shop. Add to your wardrobe, stock up on groceries or just enjoy the atmosphere at one of the many quirky shops and boutiques. In CITA Shopping Centre and El Muelle Shopping Centre there is a huge selection of wares to suit all tastes. There is more shopping fun to be found at Las Arenas Centro Comercial and Pueblo Canario.

Escape the bustling streets and browse a few of the museums in Gran Canaria, such as the art gallery, Museo Diocesano de Arte Sacro and Museo Nestor. Inquiring minds will also love the Casa Museo Perez Galdos as well as the Museo Elder de la Ciencia y la Tecnologia.

Want to get close to nature? Then visit some of the leafy nature retreats in the area. Two top urban parks for nature lovers are Palmitos Park and the Parque Doramas. Parque San Telmo and Parque Romano are two other pleasant scenic urban parks perfect for lazy days in the sunshine.

There’s absolutely no excuse for neglecting your swing when staying in Gran Canaria, home to a number of the most challenging holes in the area. Set aside a couple of hours and head to Maspalomas Golf Course and the well designed El Cortijo Club de Campo.

As a result of the efforts of its artistically-minded locals, Gran Canaria has some gorgeous performing arts institutes. For a memorable night out, book a ticket to the Teatro Perez Galdos and the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium.

Get active in the outdoors by planning a trip to the local natural reserves, such as Maspalomas Dunes or Huerto de las Flores. Come to these great places and try to spot the local flora and fauna, before having lunch or a drink in the reserves’ beautiful grounds.
