Top reasons to go to Gran Canaria

Sitting at the crossroads of Europe and Africa, Gran Canaria is a vibrant, heady blend of cultural influences brought to its shores over centuries; an island whose colonial past sits elegantly alongside its cosmopolitan present.From the architectural heritage of Vegueta to the drama and beauty of its mountainous interior, there's a great deal more to discover on a visit to Gran Canaria than just its sun-kissed beaches.

Do Gran Canaria like a local

Flying to Gran Canaria takes you to within easy reach of its capital, Las Palmas – a cultural melting pot whose South American joi de vivre moves to a distinctly Latin beat. Head first to the old quarter of Vegueta where you'll find the Museo Canario, which houses the mummified remains of the island's first inhabitants. Dominating the skyline is the splendid Catedral de Santa Ana, guarded by its bronze dogs.

Although it's uncertain he ever actually set foot on the island, there's no denying the influence Christopher Columbus had on Gran Canaria's development, and Casa de Colon is dedicated to his discovery of The Americas. Leave time for clothes and souvenir shopping in the Triana District, popping into La Sala for some authentic island handicrafts, and don't leave the city without spending time on Las Canteras beach, favourite hang-out of the locals. If it's a Saturday, stay for the Ruta Playa Viva free sunset concerts happening along the length of its promenade.

Top things to see in Gran Canaria

Heading inland from the coast on a trip to Gran Canaria opens up a whole new world. Tucked into the folds of plunging ravines, surrounded by the jagged peaks of volcanic cones, you'll find picturesque mountain villages like Tejeda where heart-squeezing views are best enjoyed in late January when the almond blossom is in bloom. And don't miss Teror with its traditional balconied houses, its Basilica de Nuestra Señora del Pino housing the island's Patron Saint and its famous spicy sausage, Chorizo de Teror.

In the troglodyte village of Artenara, the Casa Cuevas de Artenara museum lets you experience life as the island's earliest inhabitants lived it, and as many of the village's current residents still do. Standing at the heart of the island, Roque Nublo is a 67m high, basalt rock needle which was considered sacred by the island's earliest inhabitants. Visit when the mist is swirling around its base and you'll understand how it could evoke such spiritual feelings.

The main reason most people fly to Gran Canaria is to soak up the winter sunshine on its sub-tropical beaches. And who can blame them? Lying just 210km (130 miles) off the coast of Africa, a little part of that continent's landscape has made its way across the water to the desert dunes of Maspalomas, whose Sahara-esque curves have graced thousands of Instagram images. Alongside, the endless sands of Playa del Inglés attract sun-worshippers in their droves – but head instead to Puerto de Mogan and you'll enjoy fewer crowds and even more sunshine hours. Hemmed in by mountains and known as the “Venice of The Canaries”, this is the island's most picturesque resort – and its sunsets are mesmeric.
