East coast La Garita has a wide and peaceful volcanic sand beach and a long coastal promenade that goes all the way to Playa del Hombre beach. The coast in between is rocky and hides a couple of beautiful natural features.

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.
