The south of Gran Canaria can be summarised in three words: sun, beaches and leisure. The tourist attraction of the Dunes of Maspalomas, the kilometres of golden sandy beaches, the practise of a great variety of nautical sports along the coast of Mogán, and a temperate and stable climate 365 days of the year, have all rendered Gran Canaria to be the favourite holiday destination for thousands of tourists annually who want to relax whilst tanning themselves.
Moreover, the South-Western Route also gives the visitor the option of taking a tour through the interior of the island, where traditional and rural tourism play a major role.
If one is starting the route from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, take the Avenida Marítima (the Maritime Avenue) and then the GC-1 motorway; a quick route which will allow the visitor to get to the municipalities of Santa Lucía, San Bartolomé de Tirajana, Mogán and the Aldea de San Nicolás.
