Vacation in Gran Canaria

 

 

Contrasting landscapes and fascinating volcanic islands

 

The Canary Islands have so much to offer, from subtropical landscapes and lush vegetation to desert landscapes to breathtaking cliffs and golden beaches. There’s Lanzarote, the land of lava and fire, Fuerteventura with its endless beaches, La Palma with its unspoilt nature, Tenerife with its imposing volcano, and Gran Canaria with its majestic dunes reminiscent of the Sahara desert... Each island is different, but they are all bathed by a generous sun and enjoy a mild climate, so you can be sure of a great beach holiday all year round!

Gran Canaria

 

 

A continent on a human scale

 

Often referred to as a miniature continent, Gran Canaria owes this comparison to its great diversity of landscapes, its mild climate throughout the year and its extraordinary flora and fauna. It is known for its unique dune landscape, which covers over 400 hectares along the south coast. The south coast is also home to several popular seaside towns such as Playa del Inglés and Playa de Maspalomas, which boast beautiful sandy beaches, golf courses, countless shops and recreational opportunities and, of course, excellent hotels.

Puerto de Mogán

 

Puerto de Mogán

Once a small fishing port, Puerto de Mogán has gradually developed into a beautiful marina in the south of the island. This quiet town boasts a public beach and small colourful streets where climbing flowers adorn the typical Canarian shop windows. Distance from the airport: 50 km.

Playa de Maspalomas

 

 

Playa de Maspalomas/Meloneras

Playa de Maspalomas is the ideal place for a relaxing holiday.

The impressive dunes of Maspalomas, which sit in a nature reserve just a stone's throw away, are a must-see if you are staying in Maspalomas! Distance from the airport: 35 km.
