Reasons You Should Book a Holiday Home in Gran Canaria

If you have not visited Gran Canaria yet, you have missed out on a gem of an island. A holiday in Gran Canaria has much more to offer than just beaches and drinking Sangria in the sun. Enjoying the local cuisine is part of the beauty, but you should not miss out on the best things to do or see Gran Canaria. Self-catering rentals in Gran Canaria are one of the best ways to enjoy the island. Having the freedom of your own personal accommodation, will allow you to explore the island in your own time.

The Benefit of a Self-Catering Villa or Apartment in Gran Canaria

Although there is other accommodation on the island, renting a villa with pool or an apartment, could be a better idea. Holiday lettings in Gran Canaria give you more flexibility and you can set your own pace. Having to stick to breakfast and dinner times is probably the last thing you want to do on your holiday. Relaxing in the morning over a leisurely breakfast watching the sun come up, will really make it feel like you are getting away from it all.

The standard of villas in Gran Canaria is high, and at the same time, it is varied. You can stay in anything from rural farm houses to luxury apartments in Las Palmas. It all depends on what suits your personal needs, and fits in with your family requirements. However, do make sure that you have space to park a car. This is one Canary island which is certainly worth exploring, and you should take every opportunity make the most of your stay.

Little Known Facts About Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria benefits from a unique climate, and it is seldom so hot it becomes unbearable. Cooling breezes fan the island all year, but winter time temperatures still rise to at least 20 °C during the day. Conditions are different inland, and you can even encounter snow if you travel inland in winter. During the summer, you can expect temperatures to reach a minimum of 26 ° C in the day, and it is likely to stay warmer at night. The sea temperature is an average of 24 °C, and the coldest month for swimming in the sea is April, when the temperature is around 18° C.

A visit to the interior of the island reveals a different side to life in Gran Canaria. Small villages are tucked away in the interior, and the amount of forest on the island, may even surprise you. The highest peak on the island is Pico de los Nieves, and stands at 1,956 meters above the sea. During the winter time, Pico de los Nieves, can even see snow and frost, and if you enjoy nature, this is a must visit place on the island. Hiking trails are available, and you can enjoy guided walking tours of the local area.

Best Things to See or Do in Gran Canaria

When you decide to tear yourself away from your private villa or self-catering apartment, you will soon discover there are plenty of things enjoy for the entire family on the island. No visit to Gran Canaria is complete without seeing the Maspalomas sand dunes. It is a special experience to walk through the dunes, and eventually reach the Atlantic ocean on the other side. Don't rush it, look carefully in the sand and you might find a sand rose or two.

Although the younger family members will enjoy the sand dunes, they will absolutely love Palmitos Park which is a bird park on the south of the island. Not only is a bird park, it boosts a dolphinarium and you will get a chance to meet some cheeky Meerkats as well. It is easy to spend all day at the Palmitos Park as it is an educational experience and very entertaining. You can book your tickets online, and take advantages of special offers.

Dining Out and More Things to Do on Your Self-Catering Holiday in Gran Canaria

If you are a keen golfer, Gran Canaria is the perfect place to escape to for a bit of winter golf. There are three golf clubs on the island, and the greens are well maintained. Out of the three golf clubs, the best is probably Anfi Tauro Golf. The course design is well laid out, and you can bring the family to enjoy the surrounding area or even the swimming pool at the club while you play a round. Anfi Tauro is one of the top ranked golf courses in Spain, and popular with local golf societies.

Don't miss out on dining out in Gran Canaria, and enjoy different style of restaurants. You can try anything from self-service buffets in the main resorts, but an evening visit to Las Palmas is worth your while. If seafood is your sort of thing, you will be in seventh heaven. Look out for a dish called Sancocho Canario, it is a stew made from salted cod and sweet potato and unique to Gran Canaria. But, there are plenty of other exciting dishes on the menu, and many have drawn on inspiration from the sea.

When it comes to accessibility, Gran Canaria is one of the better Canary islands to visit. It is easy to get down to the waterfront on most beaches, and during low tide, you can travel all the way from Playa de Ingles to the Lighthouse in Las Palomas. Many beaches have a shady square for wheelchair users to rest. The airport is well laid out for wheelchair users, and in general, most of the towns are okay if you use wheels. Holiday lettings in Spain are quickly being adapted to suit disabled travelers.

All in all, Gran Canaria is a rocky place, but as they say, the place really “rocks”. It has many hidden treasures, and there is little wonder that it has become such a popular location to visit during any time of the year.
