Gran Canaria is one of the Canary Islands and is nestled just off of Northwest Africa. It’s known for its beautiful scenery, year-round sunshine and is a great place to head for a holiday. If you are wondering where to go on your holiday this year, Gran Canaria ticks all of the boxes. It’s somewhere you can make of it what you want and where you are guaranteed to have a great time no matter who you go with. In this article we take a look at some of the top reasons you need to visit Gran Canaria as your next trip away.
The year round sunshine
One of the best reasons to visit Gran Canaria is that you can bask in sunshine pretty much all year round. When you are fed up and miserable of your weather back home, when it’s dark and miserable in the winter, you can fly a few hours and enjoy the feeling of the sun on your skin. The hottest time to go to Gran Canaria is July and August, but the other months, particularly April to June and September to November still provide plenty of warm days and very little rain.
There are so many places to stay
Another great reason to go to Gran Canaria is the myriad of places to stay, meaning no matter what you are looking for you are sure to find somewhere you love. We recommend booking a villa as you can make the most of having space to yourself, as well as a range of stunning properties that you can make your own. You don’t need to worry about sharing the space with anyone else and can really feel at home but with a luxurious touch. Check out Holiday Rentals Gran Canaria for some inspiration. Other accommodation options are all-inclusive hotels or B&B’s which are also great for your trip.
Being a volcanic island, Gran Canaria is not short of beaches and there are so many to make the most of and enjoy. Beaches can be made of black lava or white sand and they’re both worth checking out. Head to Puerto Rico or Playa del Ingles when you are looking for a more lively spot to spend your time. If you want something a little quieter, San Agustin or Puerto de Mogan are better suited. Be sure to indulge in some water sports which are ideal here due to the winds making waves ideal for surfing or other sports.
These are just a few top reasons you need to visit Gran Canaria as your next holiday. With sunshine pretty much all year round, you can enjoy basking in the sun while knowing people back home are stuck in the wind and the rain. You can enjoy a range of different food such as Sangria and plenty of seafood and take in the most stunning sunsets.
