Small but perfectly formed, Gran Canaria manages to pack a lot onto a little island. And one of the advantages of choosing a smaller island as your holiday escape is that everywhere is within easy reach - so you don't have to miss out on a thing!
Whatever you're into, you'll find it in Gran Canaria - from waterparks to golf courses to museums to shopping centres, there's something for everyone. If you like to mix up your holiday itinerary, you can stay at any of the Gran Canaria resorts and enjoy a different activity or attraction each day.
Which resort you choose depends on your holiday style - Playa del Ingles is the most popular holiday spot on the island, with shopping centres, caf? and bar lined streets and a vast golden beach. It's a great choice for those who like to let their hair down after dark on holiday, and families also love how much there is going on in this resort.
Its next door neighbour resort, Maspalomas, is a little quieter, and the amazing sand dunes are one of its biggest draws. This resort is super family-friendly, with a 6km long Blue Flag beach and even its own mini theme park!
Puerto Rico is another Gran Canaria resort that has lots to offer families, with calm waters, a horseshoe shaped harbour and three fantastic malls crammed with places to eat, drink and shop! Nearby Amadores Beach is well worth a visit - it's like something you'd see on a postcard and has earned the moniker 'Lovers' Beach' for its beauty.
Whichever resort you choose, no trip to Gran Canaria would be complete without spending some time in its capital, Las Palmas. Think cosmopolitan city meets historic old town and you have the essence of Las Palmas, with its glamorous high streets and winding back alleyways. The Plaza de Santa Ana is one of the prettiest squares in the Canaries, and home to the stunning Cathedral de Santa Ana. You'll also find some brilliant beaches in Las Palmas - Playa de Las Canteras is an amazing city beach, which allows you to get the best of both city break and beach holiday during a stay here.
As well as fantastic beach resorts and a stunning capital city, Gran Canaria also boasts some beautiful countryside. Active types could try tackling the island's highest mountain, Pico de las Nieves - or the island's vast volcanic crater, the Caldera de Bandama. The pine forests of the Tamadaba National Park also provide a breath of fresh air and plenty of space to explore away from the coast.
