In today's post, we offer you the best plans to enjoy Gran Canaria during the month of June.
5 things to do in Gran Canaria in June
Gran Canaria is an island to enjoy 365 days a year thanks to its mild climate that invites you to enjoy life and the different plans that the island has to offer.
However, of all the months of the year, June is the beginning of one of the most festive times of the year on the island.
For this reason, we’d like to offer you the 5 best things to do in Gran Canaria in June.
1. Fiesta de San Juan
The summer solstice arrives strong at Gran Canaria. The night of San Juan is the most magical night of the year, where thousands and thousands of people congregate on the beaches with bonfires. During this fiesta, dances under the night sky and fireworks are spread all over the island.
2. Corpus Christi flower carpets
One of the main attractions of Gran Canaria in June is Corpus Christi. Corpus Christi Thursday is celebrated throughout the Canary Islands in a very special way: the streets and squares are filled with handmade carpets of flowers, sand is painted, and the asphalt is transformed into a real work of art in the open air.
3. Maspalomas International Carnival
One of the biggest spectacles in all of Spain is undoubtedly the International Carnival of Maspalomas. This celebration is brimming with joy, in which thousands and thousands of people gather in costume to party in the streets of the south of the island.
In this year 2022, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the celebration has been moved to the 9th to the 19th of June. Don’t miss out and have fun with the Queen's Gala, the Drag Gala or the Parade on the beach of the island where there’s good weather all year round.
4. Flowering of the Blue Tajinaste
The flowering of the blue Tajinaste is one of the greatest natural spectacles in June in Gran Canaria. The beauty of these flowers fill the island's landscape with colour.
The Tajinaste is an endemic plant, with which the people of Gran Canaria feel very identified. They can reach up to 3 metres in height and flood the paths that run along the Caldera de los Marteles to Tenteniguada, in the municipality of Valsequillo.
