Why you should visit Gran Canaria

Whale watching

Head out into the Atlantic in early summertime, and you might spot the humpback whales that come here during mating season. Dolphin watching trips and night fishing voyages also launch from beach resorts like Puerto Rico and Playa del Ingles.

Maspalomas Beach

The scenery in Maspalomas is like something from Lawrence of Arabia, so hopping on a camel for a ride through the dunes is a pretty tempting prospect. Maspalomas has also nabbed the island’s biggest waterpark.

Barranco de Guayadeque

Inside a huge volcanic canyon a thousand metres above sea level is Barranco de Guayadeque — an ancient village cut out of the rocks. In fact, the native Guanche tribe still live here — as well as an atmospheric Spanish tapas bar.
