Gran Canaria is one of seven main islands that make up the Canary Islands and is the third largest Island. The Canary Islands are a favourite holiday destination for many holidaymakers due to their all year round climate, short flight time and beautiful scenery.
If you’re planning a holiday to Gran Canaria and are looking for activities outside the beach and your hotel you’ll be pleased to know that there is something for everyone from water sports, to fishing, to boat trips and lots of family-friendly amusement parks.
Here is my guide to the best Gran Canaria has to offer.
What To Do On A Holiday In Gran Canaria
Palmitos Park is a huge botanical garden, aviary and zoo located near to Maspalomas. The park has species of animals and plants from 5 continents making this a perfect family day out for all ages.
A trip to Gran Canaria wouldn’t be complete without seeing the sand dunes or Dunas de Maspalomas. Breathtaking views, a beach that looks more like a desert, peace and quiet and amazing sunsets make this a must for everyone that travels to Gran Canaria. Looks more like a desert than a beach!
Cocodrilo Park is an educational and rescue park in Agüimes, south-east Gran Canaria. They have a crocodile show where the crocodiles are fed live and also monkeys which visitors can help to feed.
Aqualand Maspalomas is a water park with something for all the family. You can find huge slides, a kids’ area, sea lions & lots of eating options so you can make it a full day out.
