Best things to do: The circler island has plenty to enjoy, not just the resorts and golf courses. You have the Dunas de Maspalomas, a mini desert to explore, the cathedral de Santa Ana de Canarias and how about Palmitos Park for an aviary and dolphinarium? Plenty of variety there to keep you amused.
When to visit: Gran Canaria is one of those places that is fine throughout the year. June through to October is the height of the year when you can expect the crowds. Luckily the refreshing sea breeze means it’ll never get too humid. It’ll be quieter in the winter months, which may well suit your needs more.
A cruise with some food: Add a bit of luxury to your Gran Canaria holiday. Climb aboard the Catamaran and journey along the South coast, go for a swim and enjoy lunch and drinks. Oh, and there’s a hot tub to enjoy as you sail your way back. Now that’s the way to relax.
• The islands that include Gran Canaria aren’t named after the chirping birds, in fact, the name comes from the Latin word for dog, ‘Canaria’. When the first Europeans visited, they found large dogs on the island, or so one story goes.
• Fancy cooking food over a volcano? The islands are volcanic in origin, and although none are erupting, you can visit Timanfaya National Park and the El Diablo restaurant where they can grill food directly from the ground! The temperature of the grill reaches 400c!
• The Canary Islands have two capitals. One is in Tenerife and the other is in Gran Canaria. That’ll be Las Palmas if you’re on the island of Gran Canaria.
