Gran Canaria holidays
The beautiful volcanic island of Gran Canaria is popular with couples, families and groups alike, drawn to the mixture of vibrant resorts, relaxing towns and traditional villages. Gran Canaria holidays offer you all year round warm weather with the temperature reaching 20° during the winter and the late 20`s during the summer months.
The wonderful Gran Canaria weather makes the southern resorts of Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas very popular, both connected by an 8km stretch of superb sandy beach, backed by sand dunes. Maspalomas offers a slightly more relaxing base than the bustling resort of Playa del Ingles, where you will find plenty of lively bars, English pubs, clubs and discos.
To the west you will find the sunnier resort of Puerto Rico with plenty of water sports and a party vibe. San Agustin and Playa del Cura are relaxed and friendly Gran Canaria holiday resorts, whilst the capital, Las Palmas is great for shopping, nightlife and sight seeing.
Windsurfing is particularly popular on Gran Canaria holidays, with the world championships often held in Pozo Izquierdo. Other pastime favourites on Gran Canaria holidays include sailing, scuba diving, hiking, fishing, motorised water sports and camel rides. Theme parks and water parks prove to be very popular with families on Gran Canaria holidays.
