Overview of Las Palmas

Las Palmas is Gran Canaria’s capital and has the highest population of all the cities in the Canary Islands. According to scientists, it also has the best climate of all the cities in the world.

The Design Plus Bex Hotel and Suites is incredibly popular with culture seekers due to the huge variety of theatrical, cinematic and musical experiences available in the city. But, if you’d prefer a night out, then the historic district of Vegueta is the place where both locals and tourists can be found enjoying themselves until the early hours.

Things to do in Las Palmas

You’ll be inspired by the location of the Design Plus Bex Hotel and Suites. The sands of Las Canteras Beach are less than 10 minutes’ walk away. It’s protected from the greater ocean by a natural reef and nearby, the coast of La Cicer is incredibly popular with surfers. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to surf, there’s a school that can teach you.

El Muelle shopping mall is just across the street from the hotel. There are plenty of open-air restaurants and bars in the complex. Many of these face the harbour, providing unbeatable views of the city. If you want to pick up souvenirs or essentials, there are stores specialising in everything from fashion to books.

A great mix of sumptuous beaches, sublime architecture and cultural monuments, Las Palmas is a seaside city like no other.


Resort Summary

While people adore holidays to the Canary Islands for their sun-drenched beaches and eternally hot blue skies, there’s more than natural beauty to enjoy here.

Indeed, Gran Canaria‘s capital, Las Palmas is a spectacular and stylish city rich in culture, history and activities aplenty. Take a stroll along the Avenida Maritima and get lost in narrow Spanish-styled streets and winding avenues. The seafront promenade is a wonderfully scenic route that winds along the shoreline, peppered with modern artworks such as a massive dragonfly statue.

With your camera in one hand and an ice cream in the other, follow the Avenida Maritima and reach the premier beach of Gran Canaria – Playa de las Canteras. Protected from the greater ocean by the natural reef of La Barra, this three-kilometre beach beautifully frames Las Palmas and is a popular hotspot for holidaymakers as much as it is for natives.

South of the beach sits a little area of coast called La Cicer, where surfers gather and diving schools help you explore the world beneath the waves.
