Gran Canaria

Luxury Gran Canaria Holidays

Gran Canaria's diverse landscapes have bagged it the nickname 'a miniature continent'. The north is lush, green and leafy, the south has a desert feel, and the middle is all jagged mountains and dramatic rocks. Skirting the island you've got almost 60 kilometres' worth of beaches. They cover off all bases, from rocky coves where you'll just have the crabs for company, to huge swathes of caramel-coloured sand.

Most of the beach resorts cluster around the island's southern edges. Puerto Rico is a great family-friendly option, and lines up a horseshoe-shaped bay and a prom that's bordered by restaurants. Head a little further up the coast and you'll hit the pretty fishing village of Puerto Mogan, dubbed Little Venice thanks to its network of palm-fringed canals. Then there's lively Playa del Ingles, which is next-door neighbours with the Arabian-style sand dunes of Maspalomas.

Family holidays in Gran Canaria

Year-round good weather makes Gran Canaria a prime spot for family holidays - come at Easter for spring sunshine or perhaps October half term for a last dose of warmth before winter sets in. The Lopesan Baobab Resort is our pick for the island's most family-friendly hotel, thanks to its collection of pools (nine in total, including one with jets and slides) and spacious rooms.

Things to do in Gran Canaria

Cross Maspalomas' sand dunes
Four hundred hectares of Sahara-soft sand sits in between Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas, whipped into wave-like dunes by the wind. It's a protected area - camels are the transport mode of choice - so it keeps its middle-of-the-desert feel.

Visit Las Palmas
Gran Canaria's capital is up in the north-east of the island, but is less than an hour's drive from the resorts in the south. Spend a morning pottering around Vegueta, the UNESCO-listed old quarter. Its cobbled streets are home to a 16th-century cathedral and a handful of museums.

Hike the wine trail
The lush mountains and valleys in the north are a walker's playground, and are criss-crossed with hiking trails. Vineyards cling to the sunny slopes - plan your route to take in a handful of wineries, where you can sample the local grapes.
