Gran Canaria has been called a continent on an island and to this day visitors continue to be amazed by the diversity of its landscapes. From mountains to jungles to beaches of black, pink or golden sand, it has everything a traveller could want in one place. It’s no wonder that it has become a leading five-star holiday destination. Even for those who have visited multiple times, there is always something new to discover.
When to visit
Gran Canaria is beautiful year round with a gentle climate that’s rarely too hot and never too cold at sea level. There is occasional snow in the mountains and it can get steamy down in the valleys among the banana plantations. The weather is warmest in July, August, and September, when it rarely rains.
To sum up
Gran Canaria is a lively destination with a surprisingly sophisticated culture. Its beautiful landscapes, pleasant climate, and friendly people make it a wonderful place to escape for a while.
