Gran Canaria

Cheap Gran Canaria holidays take you to one of Spain's Canary Islands lying in the Atlantic off the Northwest African coast. It is part of a volcanic archipelago which gives rise to its unusual landscape, where arid hills give way to fertile plantations and vineyards. The resorts, dotted around the coast, cater for all age groups. There are those suited to families and older couples, as well as those with a lively atmosphere which party into the night.

With a wonderful climate, where there are no extremes of temperature, holidays can be enjoyed both in the height of summer and in the depths of winter.

Charter airlines operate from many regional airports and with little over four hours flying time, if you take an early flight you can be om the beach by lunchtime.

The standards of both accommodation and service are good and cater for all budgets. The wide variety of restaurants serve an eclectic menu that satisfies all tastes. Gran Canaria wines are as pleasing to the palate as they are to the pocket. Most of the resorts are as relaxed in the evenings as they are by day.
