Pretty famous for its heavenly beaches, Gran Canaria is the third-largest island in the Canaries’ archipelago. Geographically it varies widely, right from the mountainous terrain to the lush green forests. Gran Canaria welcomes you throughout the year with an average daily temperature of 22 to 26 degrees Celsius; the activity you would like to pursue during your vacation would affect your suited month though.
Gran Canaria is the land of beaches. You can head towards Las Canteras Beach for snorkeling, Playa de Amadores for soaking the sun within you, Playa de Maspalomas for some tranquility, and Las Canteras Beach for a beachside stroll. Explore the Natural Dune Reserve of Maspalomas for some mini desert experience. I’m sure, you would also love to have a rooftop drink at Playa del Ingles while witnessing the glorious sunset.
If you’re an art lover, you’ll simply fall in love with this place. Alfredo Kraus Auditorium, CAAM – Atlantic Center of Modern Art, Literary Cabinet, Castillo de la Luz, and Casa-Museo Antonio Padrón are worth giving a visit. Gran Canaria is also a blessing for stargazing enthusiasts. Its high peaks and clear dark sky make star gazing truly remarkable. Explore the grand sky of the Canary Islands with laser guidance, audiovisuals, and dome telescopes at its well-renowned Temisas Observatory.
There is so much to explore in Gran Canaria. This stunning place also has a scope for all those who love swimming but are afraid of the open sea. If you’re also one of them, find your way to Arguineguin, La Furnia, Las Salinas (Agaete), and Los Dos Roques to swim your rounds in a safe environment. The adventure just doesn’t end here. Explore the dunes of Maspalomas by riding on the hump of a camel. Have a memorable canyoning experience, horseback riding for those incredible views of Las Palmas, dolphin and whale watching in Puerto Rico, or simply go on a private cruise on the Atlantic Ocean.
It features enormous bar and dining options as well. To satisfy your pizza craving, head towards Restaurant Marco Polo. If being vegan and gluten-free is your choice, El Fuego is the desired place. Go to Casito Mediterraneo for some local cuisine and seafood.
