Holidays to Gran Canaria

If you are sad at the thought of spending the winter in cold, wet and windy weather then you need to plan ahead for a break. The European winter can be cold and unforgiving, even summer can be poor in countries like the UK and Ireland. So if you want a break away to the sun, where do you go?
The small chain of Canary Islands are located just a short hop off the western coast of Morocco. They're volcanic landscapes have become well-known around the world, but it is the year round sunshine that attracts the hundreds of thousands of tourists to the island each and every year.
You have a wide range of islands to choose from; Tenerife is well established and Fuerteventura is a little less known. However, it is the island of Gran Canaria that has become a favourite holiday spot with so many tourists from all over Europe for good reason.
One of the main reasons why holidays to Gran Canaria are so popular is the massive range of accommodation available. It simply doesn't matter what your holiday budget is, you'll find suitable accommodation in Gran Canaria.
Whether you want a last minute break in a cheap self-catering apartment or top quality 5 star hotels you'll find them here in sunny Gran Canaria.

Activities

The range of activities on offer in Gran Canaria is one of the main attractions of a holiday to Gran Canaria. If you want to just chill out on the beach, then there are plenty to choose from, especially along the sand dunes lining the Maspalomas area.
Getting bored of lazing by the beach or pool, why not hits the shops and make a dent in your savings! If you happen to be out looking for something more adventurous then why not try surfing or windsurfing at one of the many world class reefs dotted around the island?

Eating out

If you are on a holiday to Gran Canaria the last thing you want to do is spend your evenings slaving over a meal. Luckily there is a massive choice of quality and affordable restaurants in the resorts of Maspalomas and Puerto Rico. One of my favourites is the bottomless Chinese where you literally just keep eating until you can take no more! There are European, Oriental and local restaurants offering the best of Canarian fayre.

Getting there

Gran Canaria may be a world away on the temperature gauge, but fortunately it is within easy reach of most European countries. If you live in the UK, where all inclusive holidays to Gran Canaria are particularly popular, you can book your flights and accommodation in one go. There are frequent direct flights connecting most major cities in the UK, Ireland and the rest of Europe to Gran Canaria Airport. Prices are low but can creep up during the peak summer months and school holidays.
