Sunshine and beaches of Gran Canaria

Our island is well-known for its great variety of climates. From north to south, and east to west, Gran Canaria has many different microclimates. When in some municipalities is cold and rainy, in other ones is hot and sunny. One of the great advantages of spending your holidays here, is that you can choose different landscapes and climates without having to travel a long way.

Nature in Gran Canaria

Even if sunshiny days predominate, the northern and inland areas of the island have more rainy days than the south ones, so both the landscapes and the plans can be totally different. Long hikes along the many trails, discovering beautiful villages and the unspoiled countryside or simply enjoying a delicious meal and a good glass of wine in any of the highly recommended restaurants will delight the most demanding visitors.

Shopping and leisure in Gran Canaria

The old part of the capital of the island, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, brims with culture and historical value. There are historical museums as well as modern art ones. The city has a great agenda of theatre plays, concerts and festivals. And for those who crave for some shopping, there are plenty of shopping centres, lovely pedestrian streets with standalone stores where to shop until you drop! So why not going for a charming walk, visit a museum, and end the day shopping in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria?
