Home to a myriad of delights, you’ll be able to see them all with a hire car.
Explore Gran Canaria’s villages
At the beginning of your break away, you will almost certainly arrive at Las Palmas Airport. Spend some time in Las Palmas, the island’s capital and visit the major sites such as the Catedral de Santa Ana. If you’re up for the climb, scale the tower for breathtaking views.
Head to Bahia Felix where you can enjoy some authentic Canarian cuisine. The island produces its own cheese and wine, but be sure to look out for local dishes such as Papas Arrugadas and Ropa Vieja.
Discover Gran Canaria’s Inner Beauty
Make the drive inland to Fataga Valley. Here you’ll find a picturesque village complete with charming rural houses, palm groves and a quaint church. With a handful of great local restaurants to boot, spend the evening dining alfresco and watch as the sun sets over the tranquil setting.
Spend Some Time at the Coast
Covering the cliffs of Puerto Rico you’ll find a range of 5* hotels and resorts that offer something for the whole family, so why not head straight here? This fun-loving town is renowned for being the sunniest spot in Gran Canaria and the perfect place for those looking to top up their tan. Puerto Rico is linked with Puerto de Mogán, which is nicknamed Little Venice due the large number of canals. You’ll be spoilt for choice with the vast array of restaurants boasting local cuisine.
Stay in the area and spend some time at one of the stunning beaches, such as Playa de Las Cantaras; even if you’re travelling in the cooler months, you’ll still be able to appreciate the year-round sunshine.
