What do Gran Canaria holidays have to offer? The real question is, what don't they offer?
If you're after a beach-centric holiday that's all about doing as little as possible, Gran Canaria is the obvious choice. As far as golden sands are concerned, this fabulous Canary Island is a serious contender. Take Maspalomas for instance. This large, bustling resort is famous for its golden sands - and not just the beach variety. Maspalomas is also famous for its sprawling sand dunes, which spread out in a vast undulating pillow of shimmering gold. Here, you can join a camel safari and discover the Sahara-style landscape of this protected nature reserve, or hotfoot it across the sands to explore the landscape yourself.
Gran Canaria holidays are famous for their beaches, but there's plenty more besides. If you love your getaways loud, lively and full of fun, you'll find everything you're looking for in Playa del Ingles. As Gran Canaria's liveliest resort, this is where clubbers and party animals get their kicks, with strobe-lit clubs and booming bars that keep the party pumping all night long.
If you're looking for a beach bargain, Gran Canaria is happy to oblige. Whether you choose a large-scale tour operator like Thomas Cook or go your own way with your choice of scheduled flight and hotel accommodation, there are plenty of ways to save some money. If you're choosing a package holiday, a late deal is a great way to enjoy a great getaway without spending a fortune. Or if you like to plan ahead, you can often snap up early bird deals both on package holidays and on scheduled flights.
So whether you're after a late deal or a luxury escape, a clubbing holiday to remember or a fun-filled family beach break, there are plenty of experiences on offer in gorgeous Gran Canaria.
