Points of interest in Gran Canaria
Touristic Information

Gran Canaria lies in a part of the Atlantic known as Macaronesia, which includes the archipelagos of Madeira, Azores and Cape Verde. The closest point on the African coast lies approx. 210km away. Being of volcanic origin, Gran Canaria's 1560 square kilometres of surface area and 236km of coastline encompass many different landscapes. It is this characteristic, as well as its diverse climatic conditions, which have earned the island its epithet of "miniature continent". The highest point is the peak of Pozo de Las Nieves (1949m).

Beaches

Nearly 60km of beaches on 236km of coastline under a gentle sun that seems to have settled down here for good. Well-known and popular, such as the long stretch of sand of Maspalomas, a huge line of yellow sand stretching from Playa del Inglés to the foot of the great Maspalomas lighthouse, after bordering a dune desert on the island’s southern coastline. The south of the island has yet another long series of beaches. Quiet family ones such as San Agustín, Amadores, and the small Puerto de Mogán.

Sports

For guests, who like to combine holidays with sports activities, there are hotels, which offer lots of sports and have special sport centres, like e. g. golf, tennis, paddle, sailing, windsurfing…. For the adventurous guests there are professional centres which are specialised in sports of risk, like e. g. climbing, paragliding and skydiving.
