Great Things to Do

Las Palmas has an array of museums and galleries to choose from, so you can make sure that you get a burst of culture during your stay. There are also some traditional theatres and concert halls offering a fantastic selection of shows in the evenings.

Make the Most of the Beach

Playa de las Canteras is seriously impressive for a city beach, its rolling white sand and clear blue water is kept remarkably keen making it extremely popular with both tourists and locals. Its neighbouring beaches are ideal for surfing and body boarding.

Party in Paradise

This lively city leaves very little to be desired when it comes down to the party scene. There are plenty of chilled out bars along the beach front, and loads of late night clubs and pubs dotted all over town. Las Palmas even has its very own Pacha, which is part of the uber cool chain of clubs.

Eat Your Way around the City

Las Palmas is well known for its fantastic selection of restaurants, and whatever cuisine you prefer you’ll be sure to find it here. There are delicious tapas restaurants serving up traditional, local dishes or there are international restaurants specialising in anything from curry to pizza.

Fill up your Suitcase

The city’s shops are enough to keep you entertained for days. There are a few huge shopping centres, where you can by international brands, but if you’re looking for a more local experience then Calle Triana is the place to head. It’s in the heart of the oldest part of town and has a variety of small, local shops and boutiques.

Getting Around

Gran Canaria is easy to navigate with a range of transport readily available. The public buses are a cheap way for visitors to explore the island, most holiday makers tend to use taxis and hire cars as it offers that extra flexibility during your stay. The islands are full of cycling and hiking trails for the more adventurous and there are daily boat services hopping between each island.

By Bus

There are comfortable, air conditioned buses which leave from most of the main resorts regularly and stop at the island’s most famous attractions. The smaller, local buses are slightly less reliable.

By Car

Hiring a car is cheap, easy and highly recommended. The island’s main roads are easy to navigate and well looked after; the smaller roads can be somewhat of a challenge. Driving is on the left.
