Cut Costs with Cheap Gran Canaria Holidays
Gran Canaria is famous for its beaches and there are many to choose from. Maspalomas is a great example. It’s a long stretch of sand with a 55 metre tall lighthouse and a range of sand dunes. There are also numerous restaurants and bars along the promenade. Some sections of the beach are reserved for nudists so be aware if you’re travelling with children or maiden aunts! If you want something quieter, the beaches in the north of the island tend to be more secluded.
The south of the island, being generally warmer and drier, is more popular with tourists but the weather in the north is usually sunny too. As a result, though, the south is more tourist-focused than the north. It’s not just tourists – the south is popular with several species of dolphin so make sure you take a dolphin-watching boat tour. With luck, you’ll see quite a display from the intelligent mammals as they cavort in the waters to the front and side of your boat. Have a camera ready!
For the kids, there’s the Aqualand water park at Maspalomas and all the family will love Palmitos Park which has a range of animals including toucans, flamingos, an aquarium and a Komodo Dragon as well as a dolphin show.
