Thanks to year-round sunshine, Gran Canaria is a great holiday destination no matter which time of year you plan to visit. With beautiful sand dunes in the South, stunning mountainous scenery in the centre of the island and pine forests in the North, it offers amazing landscapes, all of which can be explored on foot, by bike or even by Jeep, should you enjoy keeping active while on holiday. As you'd imagine, the resorts here are as varied as the island itself.
With the famous sand dunes right near the town which is a peaceful haven, plus the lively Playa del Ingles just a short journey away, Maspalomas offers the best of both worlds.
