Apartments in Gran Canaria

A vacation rental on the coast

In your search for a vacation rental on the third largest Canary Island, you will find it first and foremost on the coasts of the almost circular island. Particularly central and just as close to the pulsating cultural life you live in an accommodation in the island capital Las Palmas of Gran Canaria. Along the coastline you can alternatively pitch your tents in smaller but no less picturesque locations such as Melenara and Arinaga in the east, Maspalomas and Puerto Rico in the south and El Puertillo and Puerto de Sardina in the north. A secret tip for nature lovers and those seeking peace and quiet are vacation rentals in places like Puerto de las Nievs or San Nicolas de Tolentino on the somewhat secluded west coast.

Peace and relaxation in the interior of the island

The interior of Gran Canaria is much quieter and less touristy. Just a few kilometres inland you will find dreamlike vacation rentals which nestle against the mountain flanks of the volcanic island and offer you a breathtaking view of the Atlantic from the terrace. In addition, most vacation rentals have their own pool in addition to a generous plot of land. If you want to experience Gran Canaria in a particularly original way, you should move into a vacation rental near the caldera of the volcano in the centre. Mountain villages such as San Bartolomé de Tirajana, Tejeda, Cercados de Arana and Vega de San Mateo promise absolute tranquillity and are ideal starting points for exploring the island.

Holidays in Gran Canaria

Travelers and Activities

Gran Canaria for night owls

The Canary Island is not only a paradise for active holidaymakers, but also an attraction for night owls. Playa Del Ingles in particular is regarded as the epicentre of international party tourism thanks to its numerous clubs, bars and discos. A wide range of quaint pubs and trendy bars can be found both in the harbour area and in the Vegueta district. If you want to dance all night long, the best place to do so is in the in-house discotheques of the Kasbah and Yumbo shopping centres.

Family holidays in Gran Canaria

The sunny island creates ideal conditions for a relaxing family holiday, because Gran Canaria also has a lot to offer away from the picturesque beaches, where you can relax very well. The offer ranges from a visit to the banana finca, where you can pick fresh mangos, avocados and papayas, to Palmitos Park north of Maspalomas, which offers countless tropical animal and plant species. But the absolute highlight for small and big water rats is the Aqualand with its 5,300 square meters large pool landscape as well as the numerous water slides that are up to 150 meters long.

Things to know

Best travel time

Due to its topography and the trade winds, Gran Canaria is divided into two climatic zones, making it a very popular destination all year round. Mild temperatures and low rainfall ensure that the north side of the island offers ideal conditions for a beach holiday between May and September, but also for activities such as hiking and mountain biking. In the south, however, the influence of the Sahara wind in summer is so great that it can become unpleasantly hot. In winter, however, the influence of the Sahara ensures that pleasant temperatures prevail, so that a Finca on the south side is ideal for all who want to escape the wet and cold weather in Germany.

Regular events

The programme of events in Gran Canaria is marked by numerous religious holidays, such as the Epiphany (Los Reyes), Corpus Cristi and Santiago Apóstol, which are celebrated in processions worth seeing. Other highlights for visitors are the Almendros en Flor in February, the Rally de Canaris in March, the Albaricos en Flor in April and the Fiesta del Charco in September.

The name Gran Canaria comes from the Berber tribe "Canarii", who once settled the island from the northeast of Africa.

Top 5 travel tips

Colorful houses in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

The dunes of Maspalomas on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean are absolutely recommendable and worth a trip. This wonder of nature is unique and one of the flagships of Gran Canaria. On a length of 6 kilometres there is the fine golden sand, brought into great patterns and shapes by the wind.

2nd hotspot of the island is Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the capital of the Canary Island. Especially for divers the city beach with the lime reef La Barra 200 meters away from the shore is a paradise: Fish in all colours, corals in all shapes and a seabed that is once light green, then azure blue or suddenly bright white.

The romantic fishing village of Puerto de Mogan, which is also called "the little Venice", has a very special charm. With the numerous canals that flow through the town and the small bridges that cross it, it is indeed reminiscent of the famous city in Italy.

4. A breathtakingly beautiful landscape can be enjoyed in the pine forest Pinar de Tamadaba. In the largest forest area of the island Gran Canaria you can walk wonderfully, organize a picnic and simply enjoy the nature. At an altitude of 1,500 metres, majestic pine trees rise close to the azure blue sky in the middle of this nature reserve, guaranteeing peace and relaxation.

5. Who wants to get a little insight into the culture of the Canary Islands should come to the fishing festival "Vara del Pescao" in Playa de Arinaga. The annual festival in honour of the fishermen, founded in 1995, is very popular and attracts visitors with beer and fresh fish to the beach of the small town of Playa de Arinaga.

On the desert ship through the dunes of Maspalomas

The south side of Gran Canaria resembles in many places not only the peripheral areas of the Sahara, but also has some real desert inhabitants. Join one of the many camel safaris and be guided by an experienced camel guide on the back of a camel or dromedary through the impressive sand dunes and the palm and fruit tree lined "Valley of a Thousand Palms".

Unique island cuisine

The island's cuisine is quickly noticed for its numerous influences, thanks to the Canarian natives, the Spanish settlers from the Middle Ages and the North African Berbers. Among the specialities you should try are the mini potatoes cooked in salted water with garlic sauce (papas arrugadas con mojo), the chickpea stew (ropa vieja), the baked ham (pata de cerdo), the goat meat (cabrito) and the fried black pudding with raisins (morcilla).

Visiting the Parque Arqueológico

If you are interested in history and archaeology, you will find the Parque Arqueológico not far from your vacation rental in the north of the island, in the middle of an over 1,300 year old cemetery and dotted with numerous excavated tombs of the ancient Canarians.

With the glass bottom boat on the Atlantic Ocean

From the port of Puerto Rico, a Lineas Blue Bird glass-bottomed boat will take you on an impressive voyage through the island's coastal waters, where you can experience the treasures of the sea right under your feet. With a little luck, you'll even see whales and dolphins.

Discovery tour in the Cenobio de Valerón

Those who want to immerse themselves in the world of the native inhabitants of Gran Canaria will go from their vacation rental to Cuesta de Silva and visit the cave system Cenobio de Valerón. In the approximately 300 underground passages, niches and chambers, which were used as places of worship and granaries, the soft volcanic rock has preserved, among other things, numerous drawings by ancient Canarians.
