Gran Canaria is the third largest of the Canary Islands. The variety of climates on Gran Canaria is remarkable for an island of its size, from lush forests to craggy rocks formations; Gran Canaria has sometimes been called a 'miniature continent'. Its bustling capital Las Palmas is on the northeast tip of the island but most visitors are attracted to the south coast, with its dry, temperate climate and year round sunshine. Popular Gran Canaria holiday destinations are the south coast town of Puerto Rico and the picturesque village of Puerto de Mogán, known as 'Little Venice' on account of its numerous canals. Further west along the south coast there is a large market in the fishing village of Arguineguin. The attractive beaches of Gran Canaria, formed from sand blown from the Sahara desert, are a place to unwind and soak up the warm Canary Island's sun.

Gran Canaria holidays give you the option of no less than three excellent water parks, all located in the south of the Island. Aquasur, Ocean Park and Aqua Park are perfect for families with younger children, especially when the time comes to cool off from the warm, sunny weather. On the coast there are all the usual water sports activities and whale and dolphin excursions. The diversity of Gran Canaria holidays includes the opportunity to explore mountains, forests, sand dunes and spectacular beaches all within the confines of a relatively small island. Gran Canaria holidays provide a truly extraordinary Canaries holiday experience.
