Rediscover an old favourite and book a flight to Gran Canaria. From neon-lit resorts to dune-backed beaches, this place covers all the bases.
The Canaries have long been a favourite on the holiday list and they’re still pulling the crowds in. Visit one of the most popular and book a flight to Gran Canaria. This island is surrounded by some brilliant beaches. Think long swathes of sand backed by impressive Lawrence of Arabia-style dunes. But head inland and it’s a mass of pine forests, volcanic craters and whitewashed villages. And whether you’re after the party vibe Playa del Ingles is famous for, or the more sedate Puerto Morgan, our flights to Gran Canaria are a great starting point.
Gran Canaria Top 5
LAZE on the island’s best beach, Maspalomas. A huge stretch of sand, it morphs into amazing dunes on the south coast.
HEAD for Maspalomas Plaza, where all the big labels are within Jimmy Choo-tottering distance of each other. It’s the place for a serious spree.
SAVE some room for pudding and order ‘bienmesabe’. A blend of honey, almond cream and rum, it’s best poured on top of ice-cream or fruit.
PUMP up the volume in Playa del Ingles. The beachfront is particularly lively, with places like Lineker’s, where a party vibe, massive sports screens and top tunes are the mainstays.
DIG out your guide book and get to know Las Palmas. The capital is every culture vulture’s dream, packed with museums and churches framed by bustling squares.
