Gran Canaria Holidays
Turn up the luxury!
Gran Canaria... an island of such contrasts it’s often described as a miniature continent. Sweeping dunes, lush forests, high mountains and colourful flora and fauna all create a perfect backdrop to a relaxing holiday. Its gentle climate with warm winters and mild summers makes it a year round paradise for winter breaks as well as summer holidays.
Beautiful, golden sand beaches to suit all tastes perfectly complement the infamous Maspalomas sand dunes in the south of the island, next to the ocean, and which need to be seen to be believed! Meloneras area, in the south, is Gran Canaria’s main resort with a long promenade lined with premium hotels and facilities exquisitely designed for the most demanding clients. Other luxury resorts are Amadores, Anfi and Mogán Playa which is also known as little Venice.
Keeping the children happy, whatever their age is no problem in Gran Canaria. There are some brilliant ways to spend a fun family day out; go on a camel safari, take an undersea trip in a yellow submarine or even visit one of the exciting water and theme parks such as Palmitos Park, Aqualand, Sioux City and Angy Bird Activity Park.
A golfer’s paradise, Gran Canaria boasts seven magnificent courses, all developed by top designers. Or if you prefer to relax at the spa, there is an enormous choice of Spas and Thalasso centres that will make you feel absolutely spoiled.
Venture away from the beaches and stunning hotels to discover a culture and landscape you may not have realized existed on this sunshine island. Explore the interior of the island with its dramatic volcanic landscapes and charming villages, and you will understand why almost half of Gran Canaria has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the capital city, is also worth visiting, the old quarter dates back to the 15th Century with typical architecture and lovely places to taste local tapas and the signature Honey Rum.
Whether you prefer the comfort of a villa or a larger hotel complex, there is a fantastic range of accommodation for those seeking a luxury family break. A holiday to Gran Canaria is your perfect choice!
