Here are my tips for things to do in Gran Canaria, based on our one week trip to the island in February 2011. We stayed in three different hotels in three different resorts, courtesy of sunshine.co.uk, the 3 star IFA Beach Hotel in San Agustin, the 4 star IFA Dunamar in Playa del Ingles and the 5 star Lopesan Baobab Resort in Maspalomas. Our car hire was provided holiday autos.

A Day Trip to Las Palmas
A visit to Las Palmas, the capital of Gran Canaria gives you the opportunity to combine some sightseeing with a visit to one of the city’s three beaches.

Enjoy the Beaches all Year Round
It was around 22 degrees celsius every day during our week’s stay in February, so if you find a sheltered spot (as it is inclined to be breezy) you can hit the Gran Canaria beaches any time of year.
Playa de la Canteras, Las Palmas
A walk through the Maspalomas Dunes, situated between Playa del Ingles and Playa de Maspalomas is a unique experience.
