Gran Canaria is the main island of the Canaries. The African coast is about 210 km away. Gran Canaria is located between the islands of Fuerteventura (about 83 km east) and Tenerife (about 62 km west).
Gran Canaria is in the happy position of being pampered by wind all year long. Owing to the shape of the Canary Islands, the trade winds are deflected from every island, and in some places accelerated. However, nowhere is the acceleration as intense as it is on Gran Canaria. Due to the almost circular geography of the island and its mountains with a height of 2000m, the wind often accelerates and even doubles in strength to blow around 30 to 40 knots in summer. Should you get bored, we provide our pre-booked guests at the center with SUP, kayaks and body boards for free use in the event of windless days.
Roque Nublo – Second highest point of the island with truly amazing views !
Palmitos Park – Great place where you can see exotic animals and amazing shows from a really close distance.
Barranco de Guayadeque – Canyon where natives were living in caves. Spectacular views and good restaurants located in the caves with typical local food.
Terror – Canarian village hidden in the mountains with amazing atmosphere and typical architecture. We recommend visiting this location on Sundays, when the local market offers canary specialities.
