Gran Canaria overview
Gran Canaria lies at the heart of the Spanish Canary Islands, 210 kilometres west of Morocco in the Atlantic Ocean. They call it "the miniature continent" because few places on earth can boast such a diversity of landscapes within such a small area. It stretches just 40 kilometres from north to south but offers dramatic volcanic mountains, tropical forests, desert areas and golden beaches.
The natural beauty of this island together with its year-round sunshine and wealth of tourist facilities make it one of Europe's most popular holiday destinations
Tourism is focused on the main resort area of Playa del Ingles in the south of the Island, a paradise for all-night partygoers. But there are quieter resorts and villages which are ideal for families and couples looking for a more relaxed type of holiday.
This is the island's cultural and commercial centre where you'll find an excellent range of quality shops, restaurants, museums and historic buildings reflecting the architectural influences of five continents.
Gran Canaria is like a giant horticultural centre where thousands of exotic fruits, trees and crops flourish in the sub-tropical climate. There are banana and coffee plantations, fields of sugar cane and tobacco, date palm forests and orange groves. Papayas, mangoes and avocadoes are all produced in this island of contrasts.
The south is famous for its desert sand dunes where camel trekking is always a firm favourite with holidaymakers.
There are tiny and virtually unspoilt villages to visit, beautiful valleys, cliffs, caves and canyons. You can go on a jeep safari to explore the impressive volcanic interior, take a boat ride to see the dolphins or simply stick with the foam parties and frantic activity of Playa del Ingles.
