Isla de Gran Canaria Travel Guide: 422 reviews and 1,190 photos


"A continent in miniature" is how Gran Canaria has often been described.The island covers 590 sq. miles with a rugged north coast.The peaks can reach up to 2000 meters above sea level,with ancient pine forests and deep ravines.These slowly peter out,giving way to sandy beaches.
The weather here is such that it is an all year round island.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Ideal weather
  • Cons:Can be windy on certain parts of the island.

      Yes,as one gets older long flights become more of a burden.

      for sure, on this last trip FRA to DFW was an 11-hour flight, but then I had 11 more hours with flights and airports just to get to San Diego!--not a pretty picture. at least I'd spent a bucketful of Frequent Flyer miles and was in Business/First Class all the way!

      Living where you do it must be a good place to escape the winter.

      Indeed, so many Scandinavians and Icelanders stay there during the winter months.
