Apartments & Vacation rentals Gran Canaria
Gran Canaria is the second most populated island of the Spanish archipelago, the Canary Islands. The year round warm weather is a major attraction where tourists come to seek sun and relaxation. When you visit Gran Canaria, take some time to explore the whole island if you can. You will be blown away by the beauty and the variety of landscapes here including long beaches, white sand dunes, green ravines and picturesque villages. In fact, one third of the entire island is under protection as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. If you are after beautiful beaches and water activities, head towards the South of Gran Canaria where you will find plenty of apartment options. If you are looking for outdoor activities, you may like to head to the West of the island which is more mountainous and rocky, perfect for mountain biking and hiking. It is the South of the island that attracts most tourists due to the sunnier weather. If heading South, the beaches will astound you however another wonderful attraction is Palmitos Park which is a wonderful botanical garden and bird park where you can see bird shows or simply wander through the park taking in the spectacular views. The capital city, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, even has a beach called Las Canteras Beach, which is right in the center of the city and is particularly popular with tourists. Also very popular with tourists is the Carnival which takes place in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria each year where locals and visitors enjoy music, sun, food and dancing.
