Holidays to Gran Canaria

Island charms and year-round sunshine

Gran Canaria is beloved by travellers for its fantastic climate, awe-inspiring natural beauty, cultural heritage and friendly locals.

The third largest of the seven Canary Islands, Gran Canaria boasts a remarkable range of climates and ecosystems, making it the perfect all-in-one destination. The north of the island is lush and verdant, with higher rainfall and cooler temperatures, while the sunnier south is drier and features a more desert-like environment.

A holiday to Gran Canaria will treat visitors to an enchanting tapestry of natural wonders, where fairy-tale landscapes come to life, majestic mountains reach for the sky, tucked-away villages nestle amidst emerald-green hills, and sparkling waves reveal golden beaches kissed by the sun's warm rays.

The flight time from the UK to Gran Canaria is four hours and 30 minutes.

British citizens can visit Gran Canaria with just a valid passport if staying for less than 90 days. Please visit GOV.UK for more Spain entry requirements or CIBT visas for more information.

Gran Canaria is blessed with year-round sunshine spread across hot dry summers and very mild winters.

Gran Canaria has the same time zone as GMT.

Spanish is the official language of Gran Canaria although many people also speak English and German.
