Gran Canaria:

Dominated by huge, purpose-built resorts, mostly geared up for Brits and German visitors, Gran Canaria has a reputation for being as lively as Tenerife, but with better beaches.

The island is the most densely populated of all the Canaries and has taken tourism to almost breaking point. There are few regulations to deter developers even in the already crowded towns and building work still goes on.

In contrast however, there still exists on Gran Canaria some stunning scenery, from desert-like sand dunes to pine forests to banana plantations to volcanic landscapes - perfect places to escape the crowds ... and those annoying time-share touts!

Playa del Ingles is part of the 18 - 30 scene.

General note about the Canaries; Cockroaches are common inhabitants of the islands and are frequent visitors to apartments...especially those on the ground floor. Also check in your suitcase that you're not taking any home!

Time difference: Same as UK

Flight time: Approx 4 � hours.

Currency: Euro see Travel Tips

Weather: Summer: Southern Gran Canaria enjoys hot summers which is why the resorts are concentrated along the south coasts.

Winter: Warm and spring-like in the south; milder with more cloud and rain in the north.

Excursions:
  • Natural beauty can be found at the famous dunes near Maspalomas - a breathtaking expanse of sand from the Sahara, complete with camel rides and naturists.
  • North of the island is home to the 3000 year-old volcano Bandama which now has lush vegetation growing within its crater. It takes roughly an hour to drive around the rim.
  • Several 18-hole golf courses and a new one due to be completed some time in 2005 near Maspalomas.
  • There are two water parks near Maspalomas, the biggest and best is Aqualand.
  • 'Holiday World' fun park is home to plenty of traditional fairground rides
  • Sioux City - a cowboy theme park with boardwalks, side shows and a saloon.
  • Boat trips from all resorts offer daily shark fishing expeditions, dolphin watching or coastal cruises.
  • Las Palmas is a busy working city with plenty of shopping opportunities, though it has to be said, in fairly drab surroundings.
