Gran Canaria, an ideal break all year round

Gran Canaria is a Miniature Continent. Your ideal break at 24ºC any time of year.

With 365 days of beaches with crystal waters, fine golden sand or dark volcanic sand, Gran Canaria offers everything from beach hut fun to the peace and quiet of a boat trip to a solitary cove. And just a short step from the beach, we can visit the mountains.

In the same day, visitors can enjoy the warmth of the coast, visit the countryside crossing its ravines and subtropical forests or climb mountain summits and admire the Canary pine trees.

As a bridge between three continents, Gran Canaria witnessed one of the greatest adventures in history: the discovery of the New World. Its legacy as a stop off point for travellers is reflected in the islands open, cosmopolitan and multicultural character. The heritage is there to be enjoyed with villages boasting more than 500 years of history, with a clear colonial feel and Atlantic traditions. Savour the mixture of traditional native cookery and contemporary cuisine, which is the result of this fusion between continents.

And an amazing activity programme invites visitors to live the Island’s culture: festivals offering classical music, world music, jazz, pop, rock, film festivals, opera, theatre… And for incurable romantics, how about a walk along the beach after a concert in the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium?

Let yourself go and choose your ideal scenario: stay among natural palm trees, or in a city centre hotel to make the most of the town, a private villa or a country house atop the mountains. Everything you can imagine is at your fingertips. Gran Canaria is your ideal break.
