Where To Stay In Gran Canaria
Gran Canaria has an all-inclusive haven for everyone. If you're all about the hustle and bustle, Playa del Ingles is your go-to destination. It's got stunning beaches, a lively nightlife scene, and more bars and restaurants than you can shake a sangria at. This is the place to spend a night out.
Just a hop, skip, and a jump away from Playa del Ingles, you'll find Maspalomas. Think sprawling sand dunes, serene beaches, and a quieter vibe that's perfect for unwinding.
For a slice of tranquility and charm, head to the fishing village of Puerto de Mogán, fondly dubbed "Little Venice". Picture charming canals, vibrant bougainvillea, and a slow-paced atmosphere that's a balm for the soul.
If you've got little ones in tow, Puerto Rico is your jam. This family-friendly destination boasts safe, sandy shores and thrilling water parks to keep the kids (and the young at heart) entertained.
For culture vultures, the capital city, Las Palmas, is a must. Explore the historic Vegueta district, visit museums, and indulge in authentic Canarian cuisine, although you won't generally find all inclusive resorts within the city.
Things To Do In Gran Canaria
Gran Canaria is a playground of activities that'll keep you entertained from sunrise to sunset. Kickstart your day with a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear waters of Playa de Amadores or Anfi del Mar. Water sports enthusiasts, listen up, snorkeling, windsurfing, and jet-skiing are all on the menu from the golden sand beaches here. Plus there are beach bars to enjoy an afternoon drink by the sea to help you cool off.
Nature lovers, you're in for a treat. The island's diverse landscapes offer everything from beach bumming to mountain hiking. Roque Nublo is an iconic natural monument that rewards hikers with breathtaking views, or head to the incredible Maspalomas sand dunes. You can also book a day trip or excursion for this too.
Get in on the local action by attending one of Gran Canaria's lively fiestas, happening year-round. The Carnival of Las Palmas, with its vibrant parades and colorful costumes, is an absolute must-see.
Foodies will delight in Canarian cuisine. Don't miss out on the fresh seafood, wrinkled potatoes (papas arrugadas), and mojo sauce. And of course, wash it all down with local wines or a glass of the famous Ron miel (honey rum).
Or you can simply stay by the pool, drink in hand, and enjoy the fabulous weather whatever time of year you visit. Before stuffing your face in the buffet restaurant, of course!
