Gran Canaria is one of the seven islands that make up the Spanish owned Canary archipelago situated off the west coast of Africa. It is almost perfectly circular and is special because of its amazing diversity in contrasting landscape with European, African and even American vegetation which gave rise to its nickname “the miniature continent”. Dry, arid areas bare of water or vegetation lie minutes away from lush green mountains, majestic sheer cliffs form the back drop of magnificent stretches of sandy beaches and deep ravines and gorges are filled with sweet smelling banana trees. There are very few places on Earth that have so many different contrasting landscapes and even climatical zones in such a limited space as you find here.

Gran Canaria is a popular resort for many reasons not least of which are its numerous and exquisite beaches. Most of Gran Canarias beaches have white sand and some are even completely unique in the world. Gran Canaria's coastline consists of 60 kilometres of beaches of various descriptions, some forming part of protected areas recognised for their natural beauty and unspoilt landscapes. Gran Canaria’s beaches have become well known for the transparency of their waters, their general cleanliness and the excellent facilities provided for bathers.

Gran Canaria enjoys an all year round spring climate with average annual temperatures of between 18C and 25C. However, the unusual structure of Gran Canaria has created a great variety of microclimates and while the climate is dry and sunny almost all year round in the coastal regions, as you move up the central mountain to higher altitudes where the influence of the sea is reduced and the clouds are retained by the mountains great variations in temperature are experienced. It is not uncommon for people to go sunbathing on the beach and then go to play in the snow on the mountain tops an hour's drive later.

With the advent of many tour operators offering cheap deals on holidays and flights to Gran Canaria departing from most UK airports the island is becoming ever more popular.
