Every year many people think about traveling to the island hoping to have a holiday full of sand, sun and sea. If you are thinking about a trip like this we show you our recommendations about the best hotels on the beach in Gran Canaria.

One of the most important and differentiating aspects of the Canarian archipelago is its beautiful coastline.
