Why go to Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria has got it going on. Dubbed the 'miniature continent', it's an island that boasts a little bit of everything, from rolling sand dunes and rich forests to sleepy villages and world-class cities.

Far from a fly-and-flop destination, Gran Canaria is all about getting out there and lapping up the good life. Swim in sun-kissed waters, hike among almond blossoms, soak in volcanic spa pools, climb cloud-topped rocks and feast on seafood fresh off the boat.

An effortless mix of nature, nightlife and doing sweet nothing, Gran Canaria holidays are hard to beat.

Beaches, beaches and yet more beaches

Almost 60 kilometres (37 miles) of Gran Canaria’s 263-kilometre (163-mile) coastline is covered with sand.

Home to a whopping 80-plus beaches, you’ll never be short of a spot to shake out your towel and snooze in the sunshine. Due to the island’s volcanic roots, you’ll find a whole kaleidoscope of sand, ranging from perfectly golden to silvery grey and lightly toasted brown.

Cocktails and cafés in the capital

It’s a serious mistake to think that all-inclusive Gran Canaria holidays are only about the beach.

Stretched across two scenic bays, Las Palmas, the capital of the island, is a buzzy city packed with historic sights, al fresco cafes and trendy tapas bars. With two beautiful urban beaches and a chic marina, it’s a cosmopolitan spot to shop ‘til you drop, splash out on cocktails and sit around in the sunshine.

A cheap 2019 holiday in Gran Canaria is easily filled with things to see and do, but the island’s capital Las Palmas warrants a break all of its own.

A playground for grown-ups

Beyond the bright lights of Las Palmas and the luxury beach resorts, Gran Canaria is a natural playground just begging to be explored.

Nature buffs and hikers will be in seventh heaven at Roque Nublo (Cloud Rock), set within the Gran Canaria Biosphere Reserve and surrounded by fragrant pine forests. This iconic chunk of volcanic material is one of the largest free-standing rocks in the world and, with the aid of a few ropes, you can scramble up to its cloud-swirled summit. It’s guaranteed to add some adrenaline to your Gran Canaria holiday.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
