The Finca de Osorio is an old country estate surrounded by laurel, cork oak and chestnut forests. You need permission to visit but it is a great spot for a walk and a picnic. 

Gran Canaria plans to reduce its dependence on imported fossil fuels by tapping its natural solar, wind and geothermal energy potential. We hope that it is just a matter of time before Gran Canaria becomes energy independent and doesn't have to burn hydrocarbons to keep the lights on.

 

The 2017 Señorío de Agüimes won best Gran Canaria White wine in 2018. The bottle comes with a gold medal sticker to prove it.

The sun in Gran Canaria is fiercely hot so you need to wear sunscreen even if it is cloudy or you are here in the winter. However, we see burned people every time we go to the beach so here are our smart tips for safe tanning.

Gran Canaria 2019 Calendar

Want a bit of Gran Canaria in your home or office all-year-round? Or a beautiful Christmas gift for that special Gran Canaria fan in your life?

 

The Poema de Mar Aquarium in Las Palmas has one of the world's largest viewing windows and is yet another reason why you have to visit Las Palmas city.

Lago Taurito isn't the biggest water park in the world but it has a lovely swimming pool, plenty of sunbathing space for the grown-ups and enough rides to keep the kids happy for a good few hours. 

Cocodrilo Park is a great mix of zoo and animal rescue centre with a huge range of animals and lots to do and see for the kids. It's well worth the drive or the free bus trip. 

The three main local markets in Las Palmas sell all kinds of fresh produce from local fruit and vegetables to fish, cheese and coffee. Here’s our guide to all of Las Palmas city’s daily and weekly markets.

For a big resort with two large shopping centres, Puerto Rico is actually rather lacking in quality shopping. However, this about to change with two big new retail areas due to open in 2019 right in the middle of the resort.

The Meloneras waterfront is one of Gran Canaria's smartest areas with a beautiful fringe of coconut-palms, a wide boulevard with exceptional sunset views, and many of the island's most attractive terraces and outdoor restaurants. It's also home to some of the best shops in Gran Canaria. 

Fundgrube started back in the 1980s with one shop in the CITA centre in Playa del Inglés and has now grown into the biggest Gran Canaria-based retailer in the Canary Islands. It sells a huge range of quality cosmetics, perfume, tobacco, jewellery and fashion accessories like shoes and sunglasses. It's a must-visit store on a shopping day in Gran Canaria thanks to both the range of brands it stocks and the excellent value for money it offers. 

You may think that everyone in Gran Canaria spends all day wearing flip flips but there is much more to Gran Canaria shoes than you'd expect. Here's our guide to buying footwear on sunshine island.
