Unspoiled nature, lively towns, spectacular beaches.

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.

Weather & what to pack

Due to its geographic position, temperatures in Gran Canaria tend to be mild all year round, and the island also enjoys hot summers with average temperatures reaching between 26 and 28 degrees Celsius. On your Gran Canaria cruise, make sure to pack light cotton layers to keep you cool, as well as some sturdy shoes for exploring. Don’t forget swimming gear –you won’t want to miss this island’s incredible beaches!
