Discover Gran Canaria Spain

Crowded and touristic, Gran Canaria has such a diverse landscape that it is often compared to a miniature continent. To the west of Playa del Inglès, the island's largest seaside resort, you will find the sand dunes of Maspalomas. To the north, you will come across the region of Agaete, which is surrounded by fertile valleys ripe with fruit. Further on, perched high above a canyon, you will discover Cenobio de Valeron, a network of 200-300 caves. However, it is the Roque Nublo, which rises in the west, (a 230 ft monolith) that was a sacred place for the Guanches, the now extinct natives of the Canary Islands.

    The island may be lacking in sandy beaches but its turquoise waters, on the other hand, are great for diving.
