Gran Canaria is blessed with breathtaking scenery, magnificent golden sandy beaches, majestic mountains and its volcanic interior and its unique black, volcanic sand beaches - mostly found on the east coast. Holidays to Gran Canaria are firm family favourites thanks to the year-round sunshine and the island's wealth of activities from riding camels on Maspalomas' famous dunes and the island's fun-filled waterparks to karaoke bars and lively bars in Puerto Rico and Amadores for those that are young at heart. With pocket-friendly deals to this sunny Spanish island, you're sure to find a resort that offers endless fun in the sun on Gran Canaria holidays.

Canaria's beautiful beaches

Gran Canaria has 60km of coastline to enjoy, so you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches and watersports. The island's famed black volcanic sands are a must visit - head to Playa de Taurito! Maspalomas beach's rolling sand dunes have made the resort famous the world over. Visit Meloneras, a beach with a lively promenade dotted with cafés or if you crave an easygoing pace, Amadores is an ideal spot where children can swim in the shallow waters.

Nightlife in Gran Canaria

With hundreds of cafes, clubs and discos coming alive after sunset, Gran Canaria has plenty of places to party. Cuasquías and Plaza de España in Las Palma are always bustling with live music, while Playa del Ingles attracts partygoers with its buzzing nightlife and beach bars. Puerto Rico is another lively resort and there are two casinos on the island for those who fancy a wager.

Fun at the waterparks

The island Gran Canaria boasts waterparks and theme parks galore, along with crazy golf, watersports, parks and fairs during the summer. The Wild-West themed Sioux City will wow with its exciting rides, while Aqualand waterpark and its neighbouring Palmitos Park are perfect for water babies and those who want to see dolphin shows and more!

Where to eat in Gran Canaria

Canarian cuisine is known for being fresh, simple and rich. Gran Canaria has a long list of restaurants right from pavement eateries to sea-facing terraces where you can sample authentic dishes. You can't go wrong at the lively restaurant El Belingo (live music on Saturdays) but for those that crave seafood, book a table at Cofradía de Pescadores in beautiful Puerto de Mogan. Fusion-lovers will love the upmarket Samsara that blends local and Asian influences, but if you're into simple meals, grab a table at La Olivia, a great place for fresh traditional cuisine.
