GranCanaria Travel Guide

by our Spain expert Conrad Freethy
Conrad FreethySometimes billed as a “continent in miniature”, what Gran Canaria may lack in size, it certainly makes up in variety. Between the bustle of the capital and the buzz of its beach resorts, you’ll find all the ingredients for a perfect holiday. With a mild climate year-round, landscapes that include sandy dunes, banana plantations, lush valleys and slopes that soar to the centre of this circular island, there are also man-made distractions aplenty. Visit Columbus’ house in Las Palmas, browse upmarket marinas and resorts, have the family watching a wild west brawl at Sioux City or feeding time at a crocodile park, or send the kids splashing down the slides at one of several water parks.
