Last minute holidays to Gran Canaria

Grabbing a cheap last-minute holiday to Gran Canaria is a great way to say goodbye to the grey skies of home and enjoy almost guaranteed sunshine and warm temperatures. Throw in the fact that Gran Canaria is just four and a half hours' flight from the UK and you've got all the makings of a perfect holiday.

We know that a great beach and gorgeous weather are pretty much all you need for a family break, but you'll find that last minute Gran Canaria holidays offer even more fun for your money. As well as some of the best beaches, Maspalomas is a great place to take a boat trip for a chance of seeing playful bottle-nosed dolphins along the coast.

If you fancy some thrills and spills at a water park then you'll love having Aqualand on your doorstep. It's got slides, rides, and pools galore and promises a memorable day out for the whole family.

As you'd expect from a resort that has been welcoming holidaymakers since the 1960s, Playa del Ingles has some of the most popular late deals to Gran Canaria. After enjoying a day on golden sands, what could be better than partying the night away in the lively Kasbah district? If you fancy a change from the beach, a day in Canariensis Botanical Gardens will do the trick, or you could head to the Yumbo Centre for some of the island's best shopping.

With all this beautiful coastline it's no surprise that holiday deals to Gran Canaria are popular with divers, snorkellers and windsurfers. Whether you're an expert or a newbie, the cash you've saved on your holiday will go a long way towards helping you become a true water baby. You'll find lessons and PADI-Approved facilities at many of our resorts, and we especially recommend Arinaga Marine Resort on the east of the island.

These cheap deals in Gran Canaria really do offer something for everyone and are the perfect way to grab a sneaky getaway or make great savings on a family holiday.
