Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria is the most well known of the Canary Islands but is only the third largest. Canary Islands capital, Las Palmas, lies entirely north of the Grand Canaria and has nearly 400,000 inhabitants, about half of the total population at Gran Canaria.

In recent decades is the Gran Canaria's southern tip that has developed into a tourist magnet with the cities / towns Playa del Ingles, Maspalomas, Arguinegin, Puerto Rico and Puerto Mogan. Most tourists remain in this area and binge perhaps with a day trip to Las Palmas. This is a bit of shame because the rest of island has so incredibly much wonderful and varied scenery to offer. We will recommend that the option to rent a car and take a proper tour of the island of Gran Canaria. You will then experience of Gran Canaria is so much more holiday destinations on the island's south coast.
