What springs to mind when you think of Gran Canaria? Gorgeous golden sands and sizzling summer sunshine? Fun-filled boat trips and days spent splashing around in a waterpark? Excursions across mountain ranges and through stark volcanic landscapes? All inclusive holidays and family-friendly escapes? Gran Canaria is all this and much, much more.
Gran Canaria is king of diversity. There’s so much to see and do here, it’s difficult to know where to start. Of course as beaches go, there’s a fabulous selection of golden sands, sweeping bays and pebbly coves. Some beaches are full of energy, with kids playing happily in the surf and adrenalin-junkies taking on all manners of different watersports like jet-skiing and windsurfing. Other beaches are more laid-back, with a smattering of sunbeds lining up under the sun’s rays and a quiet appeal that’s perfect for snoozing to the sounds of your holiday playlist.
If you love lively days and energetic nights, you can’t beat a stay in Playa Del Ingles.
It’s got a buzzing beach which melts into the glorious, protected sand dunes of Maspalomas, and by night, the resort really comes alive with high-octane pubs, clubs, bars, karaoke venues, cheesy discos and just about everything in-between.
At the other end of the scale are the low-key towns of Playa de Amadores and Puerto Rico, where the emphasis is on the lovely beach and relaxing evenings out.
If you’ve got all inclusive holidays on the agenda, you’ll find plenty of choice across the island’s hotels, which cater to a huge variety of tastes. Whether you’re a party animal looking for a low-cost roof over your head, a family looking for affordable digs, or you’re after a no-holds-barred luxury escape with all the trimmings, Gran Canaria is happy to oblige.
