About Gran Canaria
Gran Canaria is the second most populous of the Spanish Canary Islands (after Tenerife).

Due to the diversity of landscapes and microclimates Gran Canaria is sometimes referred to as a ‘Miniature continent’. The center of the volcanic island is mountainous, having Pico de Las Nieves, at 1950 meters as the highest point. Gran Canaria’s capital, the city of Las Palmas is located on the island’s north-western coast - see map of Gran Canaria. Most holidaymakers, though, head to the southern coast, where Gran Canaria’s most popular tourist resorts are, amongst them: Maspalomas, Playa de Inglés and San Agustín.
