Whether you're looking for sun, sea and sand, a bustling city break or to explore natural volcanic craters and wooded valleys, Gran Canaria holidays tick all of the boxes.
Gran Canaria is the third largest island in the Canaries archipelago, and is the most developed of these seven Spanish sisters. It's nicknamed the 'miniature continent', owing to the island's dramatic variety of terrain that ranges from the lush green north to the desert south.
The bustling capital, Las Palmas, is located on the northeast tip of the island, lying between the beaches of Las Caletas and Alcaravaneras, but most visitors are drawn to the golden sands of the southern coastline and its abundance of fantastic holiday resorts.
A quiet resort on the south coast which is a short distance away from busier destinations, Bahia Feliz can offer a Moroccan feel beach holiday as well as some great days out.
Some of the activities enjoyed on Bahia Feliz's doorstep are the skydiving centre, Sioux City and Aqualand. All of them making for fantastic, exciting days out before you slink back to the resort's quiet setting and enjoy the calm offerings of the serene sunshine surroundings.
This resort's most iconic land is its large expanse of golden sand dunes which stretch for miles. While the dunes are great for exploration inland, it backs onto the ocean meaning that you'll be able to find your own patch of private beach relaxation.
Maspalomas enjoys a fun nightlife and is a short distance away from the lively Playa Del Ingles meaning that days and nights in this resort can be as exciting or as laidback as you want them to be.
The most popular resort in all of Gran Canaria, Playa Del Ingles is home to a number of great day time attractions, beautiful beaches and some of the most exciting nightspots in all of the Canarys.
The resort has the tools to cater for everyone's holidays making this destination busy throughout the year. What better place to enjoy the Canary Island sunshine than on the Playa Del Ingles beaches or the Maspalomas dunes which hug the edge of the town.
The party never stops here with 24 hour entertainment, great atmospheres and plenty of shops and restaurants. This resort offers a holiday you will never forget.
The antithesis of the bustling nightclub resorts, Playa Taurito is a quiet family destination where you and your loved ones can enjoy a relaxing getaway in peaceful surroundings on the southwest coast of Gran Canaria.
A rocky town where many of the hotels and villas are built into the cliffs meaning that you can enjoy great views down onto the beach from your accommodation or you can enjoy the spectacle of seeing an entire community seemingly indented into the rock face of the cliffs.
With a personality that is unmatched in Gran Canaria, Puerto Mogan offers a relaxing holiday environment where you can sit back and enjoy this quirky beach town.
Known as the Venice of the Canaries thanks to its stylish architecture and sea water inlets into the town, these unique surroundings make for a beautiful getaway in a resort that is miles away from the clichéd party atmosphere that some of the Canary Islands enjoy.
Centred around a large golden crescent beach, this resort can offer excitement and relaxation in equal measures.
There are also plenty of commercial centres where you can enjoy dozens of quality shops, delicious restaurants and exciting bars. While Puerto Rico is not as popular as some of the better known destinations of Gran Canaria, it can still pack a punch in terms of holiday fun and excitement.
