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.
