Gran Canaria has long been one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations. With over 120 miles of stunning coastline home to a wonderful range of resorts including Maspalomas and Meloneras, Amadores and Mogan – along with UNESCO-protected inland regions and some of the best golf courses, spa and wellness facilities in Europe – this wonderful island has something for everyone.
While there’s so much to love about Gran Canaria, the island’s appeal begins with its beaches. There are spectacular golden beaches to be found all around the island, with the south of the island home to Amadores and Mogan’s silky soft sands. Don’t miss the exhilarating Maspalomas Dunes, a wild and windswept feature leading down to Maspalomas and Meloneras, exclusive resorts with a world class collection of luxury hotels.
Just a short drive from the coast, you’ll be surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of Gran Canaria’s diverse inland. Protected by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve, you’ll have the chance to explore volcanic mountain regions, fragrant pine forests and palm tree groves over a thousand years old. But with everything from treks and rock climbing to skydiving and paragliding, you’ll soon discover that Gran Canaria is an island to be experienced, not simply observed!
If action-packed holidays aren’t quite your style, don’t worry. Gran Canaria enjoys a global reputation as a health destination, with an unrivalled collection of fabulous spa resorts to
indulge all your senses. You can also enjoy no fewer than seven 18-hole golf courses – and with warm sunshine even through the winter, you can hit Gran Canaria’s lush green fairways all year round. This diverse island is as perfect for fun family holidays as luxury romantic escapes.
At the southernmost tip of Gran Canaria, Maspalomas and its chic sister resort of Meloneras contain some of Gran Canaria’s most exclusive and best-rated hotels and resorts. The famed Maspalomas Sand Dunes and a protected area of thousand-year old palm groves offer beautiful surrounds for any luxury escape.
With consistently warm weather, but without extreme temperatures in summer, test your golf skills all year round in Gran Canaria with views over sand dunes and volcanic plains. Real Club de Golf de Las Palmas was the first established golf course in Spain – and many consider it the best to this day!
