Shopping

From Spain's largest Primark to cave shops selling hand made pottery, Gran Canaria has shopping for all tastes and wallets. Here's our guide to the best places to buy everything in Gran Canaria.

El Verol Gift Shop in Arguineguín sells a great range of original gifts and home decorations that is well worth browsing.
Airport duty-free shops go all out to entice you to buy booze, cigarettes, perfume, and chocolate. But on a low-tax island like Gran Canaria, is it worth waiting until the departure lounge to buy? 
Gran Canaria is not part of the EU Customs Union so allowances are stingy by European standards. On the plus side, prices are low in the Canary Islands thank to low VAT and taxes. 
For serious Gran Canaria shopping, you have to head north to the capital Las Palmas. As one of Spain's ten biggest cities it's got the island's biggest malls, one of the country's top outdoor shopping areas and so many authentic cafes and restaurants that you'll struggle to stay focused on…
Almost everything you buy in Gran Canaria is cheaper than in Europe thanks to our low sales tax and lack of luxury item taxes. Low prices and a great range of shops make the island a top shopping destination.   
We often get asked if it's safe to buy expensive electronics, such as cameras and mobile phones, in Gran Canaria. Our answer is yes, provided that you go to reputable shops and follow the same precautions as you would at home. 
 Back-scratchers, novelty bottle openers and wonky plastic bulls all make amusing souvenirs from Gran Canaria. However, they don't have the authentic kudos of these quality Canarian handicrafts.
