Main attractions in Gran Canaria
One of the main attractions of Gran Canaria is the great diversity of places of interest that can be found and enjoyed all year round due to its spectacular weather. Gran Canaria, the island commonly known as the "miniature continent" has the peculiarity of being able to visit a spectacular beach during the day and enjoy incredible ravines and cliffs a few hours away. Furthermore, its hospitable and friendly people, its tasty gastronomy and the special corners of Gran Canaria, make this place one of the best destinations to visit at any time of the year.
The capital: Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
A must for your visit to Gran Canaria. The capital and, in it, one of its greatest attractions, Playa de las Canteras, recognised as one of the best urban beaches in Spain. It is the destination of numerous visitors who enjoy its golden sand and the good climate of the capital most of the year. On the other hand, the historic centre of the capital, located in Vegueta, is another of the enclaves of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, due to the architectural beauty of its buildings, its cultural wealth and the magic of its streets, where many people enjoy the tapas and beers that the bars and restaurants offer at an unbeatable price.
The picturesque villages of Gran Canaria
If there is something that makes Gran Canaria special it is the people who live in its beautiful villages all over the island, from north to south. It is in these villas where you get to know the Canarian people, their traditions and customs first hand. One of the most outstanding is the town of Teror, where the patron saint of the island "La Virgen del Pino" is located in Basilica of Teror: a place of worship and pilgrimage for all Canarians. Arucas, another town worth visiting, with its enormous cathedral that can be seen on any postcard of Gran Canaria, where you can find the Rum par excellence of the island and its factory: Arehucas Rum. Gran Canaria is one of the called "Fortunate Islands" and among other things it is for having one of the "Most Beautiful Villages in Spain" as Tejeda is a unique village in one of the highest points of Gran Canaria.
The wonderfull beaches of Gran Canaria
This is one of the great reasons why millions of visitors come to Gran Canaria every year: the wonderful weather on the island and the spectacular beaches that bathe its coasts. In the south of the island we find the most touristic ones like Maspalomas and its dunes, Amadores, Anfi del Mar or Puerto Rico. Although there are many other beaches that are not as well-known and have a greater affluence of local people, some of them are located in the north like Playa del Juncal, Playa de San Felipe or Playa de Sardina del Norte. In the north of the island you can find the natural swimming pools, typical in Gran Canaria and perfect to have a great time with the family.
