Beautiful Gran Canaria

Make no mistake about it, Gran Canaria is beautiful. Volcanic cones stud its wild hinterland, jutting to the skies with black-rock craters and sculpture-like fissures. Pine forests cascade down the hills in the north, meeting the wild Atlantic swells where surfers carve across the whitecaps. The south is the province of the sun seekers. It's got the glowing bays of Playa del Ingles and happy-go-lucky Maspalomas, packed with Gran Canaria vacation rentals on the seafront, and pulsing with cocktail joints and bars. The capital at Las Palmas, meanwhile, has ochre-hued Spanish mansions and elegant churches between its cobbled streets.

Gran Canaria's whatever you make itÉ

Whether you come to pull on the walking boots and scale the mighty volcanic cones of the interior, or to slap on layers of sun cream and recline between the beach bars and palms, you can rest assured you'll find Gran Canaria vacation rentals to suit. The nightlife and karaoke rounds of the south coast are legendary. The mountain biking and geological wonders of the Valsequillo region will have you reaching for the camera. And the salt-sprayed villages in the north are home to surfing spots. There's also wine tasting, Canarian cooking classes, art tours, golf courses _ the list goes onÉ

Gran Canaria's brimming with top attractions

Perhaps you're seeking rustic Gran Canaria vacation rentals in the mountains, to wonder at the chiseled tops of Roque Nublo, unearth the fascinating cave-monastery of Valeron, or drive precipitous routes to the Mirador del Balcon on the cliffs above the Atlantic? Or, are you looking for something in the coastal resorts? There, the attractions are a different breed, coming with the undulating Maspalomas Dunes, the dolphin-splashing waters of Palmitos Park, and the twisting slides of Aqualand. Then there's Las Palmas, complete with cacti-topped Jardin Canario and the historical streets of Vegueta.

Over 320 days of sun in Gran Canaria

You don't have to pay too much attention to the seasons in Gran Canaria. This far south from mainland Spain _ closer to Africa, in fact _ the weather's almost always warm and balmy. Unless you're heading to the high mountains for a rustic stay, beachwear should be the norm. The sun shines more than 320 days each year, too. May to October are the hottest months, while December to February sees a peak in visiting snowbirds eager to escape the snows of northern Europe.

Gran Canaria offers a bit of everything

Gran Canaria's great variety of habitats and nature has garnered it a reputation as a continent writ small. You can scale to the soaring heights of volcanic mountains in its center, where the deepcraters of Caldera de Bandama and the carved valleys of the Guayadeque ravine crash through the earth. Down on the south coast and in Mogan are the palm-peppered beaches, and the undulating desert dunes around Maspalomas. The north is lusher, with wave-washed inlets and splashing whales out at sea.
