Holidays Deals to Gran Canaria

Holidays / July 9, 2018

There's no such thing as leaving it too late when it comes to our last minute holidays to Gran Canaria – just make sure you've got enough time to make it to the airport.

Our late deals to Gran Canaria land you on an island that stacks up everything from big beach resorts to epic Saharan sand dunes. Here’s what you could be getting up to in a few weeks’ — or days’ — time…

Why you should visit Gran Canaria

Dolphin spotting in the Atlantic

Gran Canaria has dolphins coming out of the woodwork. The warm waters of the Atlantic reel in six types of the critters. If you’re lucky, you might even spy one of the largest mammals on the planet — the fin whale. Turtles and flying fish are regulars to the Canary Islands, too.

Lively nights in Playa del Ingles

Playa del Ingles really turns up the tempo at night, when superclubs Pacha and Cream open their doors. Two-for-one drink deals and fishbowls are the theme in the bars. For something family-friendly, make tracks for the kids’ discos and friendly bars in the shopping malls.

Explore the volcanic backdrop

It’s easy to forget that Gran Canaria is a volcanic island when you’re kicking back by the hotel pool. But head towards capital Las Palmas, and you’ll bump into a whopping volcanic crater. And the mountains in the interior include Pico de las Nieves — a sky-high dormant volcano.
