Gran Canaria’s vast and varying terrain means that it offers something for everyone who chooses to holiday on the third largest Canary Island. It’s famous for its dramatic coastline with its white-sand beaches, which are perfect for the sun worshippers and the water sports junkies. But venture further inland and you’ll find mountainous landscapes and sights such as Roque Nublo, which are a hiker’s dream come true.
If you’re more interested in finding out about history and culture when you go on holiday, then head to the island’s capital, Las Palmas, and explore Vegueta and the Catedral de Santa Ana. And for those looking for a fun day out for yourselves or the whole family, then Jardin Canario and Palmitos Park should both be high on your list of things to do
