Gran Canaria

Playa del Ingles, Maspalomas, Puerto Rico

As one of the ‘big four’ Canary Islands, Gran Canaria enjoys the same superb year round climate as the other islands in the group. Hugely popular with UK holidaymakers over many decades, mainly because they know that whether they want to relax, party, or do a bit of both, they will be very well catered for on this island.

Gran Canaria

Arucas

The small town of Arucas is located in the north east corner of Gran Canaria and offers a range of cafes, restaurants and bars, as well as an attractive main square. The island capital, Las Palmas, with its attractive marina, historical centre and huge array of shopping opportunities, is around 30 minutes drive away.

Playa del Cura

Playa del Cura is quietly nestled between its two larger neighbours, Puerto Rico & Puerto Mogan. It's perfect for a tranquil getaway, with just a handful of cafes, bars and restaurants, but with quick and easy access to the neighbouring resorts if you want a day or night of something livelier. The resort has a natural volcanic sand beach and a man made white sand alternative. 

Puerto Rico

Built on a valley in the southern edge of Gran Canaria and offering stunning ocean views, Puerto Rico is one of the islands most popular resorts. There is a choice of beaches and the main resort centre at the foot of the valley bustles with a wide variety of bars, shops, cafes and restaurants. The Commercial Centres overlooking the valley ensure guests who have the benefit of the best resort views from their accommodation, also have plenty of eateries and watering holes to choose from, without having to stray too far.

Playa del Ingles / Maspalomas

The biggest, busiest resort on Gran Canaria, with some superb beaches, Playa del Ingles truly has something for everyone. There is pretty much every type of bar in which to enjoy a quiet drink, or party the night away. International restaurants galore ensure you will never be bored with the cuisine if you decide to eat out and there are seemingly endless opportunities to shop to your heart’s content. Maspalomas is Playa del Ingles' smaller, quieter next door neighbour. A resort in its own right with a superb beach, plus a selection of shops, cafes and bars, but with the added benefit of having a much wider array of amenities right on the doorstep for those who want it.
