Cheap flights to Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria – a Spanish paradise isle that serves up a tourism treat with its world famous resorts, never ending golden beaches, picturesque mountain villages and desert-like rolling dunes. 

It might be located 130 kilometres off the African coast, but the island of Gran Canaria is as Spanish as sangria. Most people choose to come to Gran Canaria for its bustling tourist resorts located along its sunny, southern shores. Here you’ll find the island’s best hotels, best beaches and a nightlife catering for all tastes.

Those who really want to let their hair down should head to Playa del Inglés with its neon lights and good time vibe. But if you’re after something a little more sedate then check out sophisticated Maspalomas, with its beaches backing onto seemingly never ending sand dunes. And for those of you who really do want to push the boat out, there is always classy Meloneras with its stylish hotels and upmarket shops.
