Breaks In Gran Canaria, Spain

Posted January 18, 2011 by BookingBuddy

GranCanaria Escape to Gran Canaria for a funfilled holiday in the sun! The third largest of the Canary Islands, Gran Canaria is home to beaches, sand dunes, historic towns, and nature reserves. Visit Las Palmas for a vibrant city break, or head to one of the smaller villages to enjoy a slower pace of life.



Taboga – See the spectacular dunes of Maspalomas from your balcony here at Taboga. Located in lively Playa del Ingles, the hotel offers 24 airy self-catering apartments – each fitted out with a full kitchen and comfortable living room. Room rates start from £50.



Roque Nublo – The monolithic Roque Nublo stands on a mountain peak overlooking Gran Canaria, and has been an emblematic landmark of the island for thousands of years. Hike out of Tejeda to reach the rock – it sits nearly 2000 metres above the town, and at that height, the views are spectacular.



El Herreno – Join the locals here for some tasty Canarian food. This popular restaurant also has plenty of tapas dishes on offer. Try the ubiquitous papas arrugadas – wrinkly potatoes served with lashings of fiery mojo sauce. Roast pig trotters are another specialty, as well as snails, cheese and seafood.
