Abora Catarina by Lopesan

Freshly refurbished with a swanky, vibrant new look, the whitewashed Abora Continental has a big pool, and is just a short stroll from the beach, local shops and the Maspalomas sand dunes. It has five pools in total, along with a buffet restaurant, food court and an outdoor dining terrace, perfect for an al fresco supper. The little ones have a playground to work off all that energy, and there’s a gym for adults to do the same. The comfy sofas offer the ideal opportunity to kick back and enjoy a refreshing cocktail after a long day on the lounger.

Overview of Gran Canaria

What to expect from a holiday to Gran Canaria? Sun. And plenty of it. The annual average is a toasty 24˚C, perfect for getting involved in some of the excellent water sports available, or lazing on the golden beaches. The rolling sand dunes, green hills and jaw-dropping sunsets are pretty special, too. Playa Del Inglés, home of the Abora Continental by Lopesan, is a gorgeous spot on the south coast, where the beaches are particularly beautiful. This area benefits from a vibrant beachfront area with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to explore.

Things to do in Playa Del Inglés

You’re in close proximity to all the fun at the Abora Continental. The rolling Maspalomas dunes are a 25-minute walk away, and the beach, complete with beachfront shopping centre, is right on your doorstep. If you’re in the mood for some late-night music and dancing, the annual Maspalomas Carnival takes place every March. Satisfy your inner adventurer by taking the memorable jeep and camel safari to Fataga, or dolphin-spotting boat trips leave from the harbour in Playa del Inglés every day. The beachfront area in general is home to great bars, duty-free shops and seafood eateries. Whatever you want to do in Playa del Inglés, you’re in for an idyllic, sun-filled experience. There’s plenty to keep you amused during the day, natural beauty at every turn, and no shortage of bars to explore by night. So kick back, relax and take it all in.
