Gran Canaria is the Canary Islands’ third largest isle and it accounts for around half of the Canaries’ population, so it has a vibrant, bustling atmosphere and lots to see and do.
During your Gran Canaria cruise, you’ll find that this island exists in two halves: its centre is wild and mountainous. It’s the perfect place to lose yourself for a few hours and to enjoy a range of activities such as hiking and cycling.
The coastal fringes of the island, however, tell a different story. Beautiful coastlines with white sandy beaches turn Gran Canaria into an island paradise, where you can soak up the sun, cocktail in hand.
There are also a number of bustling towns and resorts to explore. The historical capital of Las Palmas offers plenty for those seeking culture on their Gran Canaria cruise. Don’t miss the Casa-Museo de Colón, which documents the voyages of Columbus.
