Gran Canaria is the third largest of the Canary Islands and often referred to as a miniature continent, because of the diverse range of landscapes and climates that can be found throughout the island. However, of all Gran Canaria's landscapes it is perhaps most famous for its beaches; it has an impressive 128. The island is perfect for beach lovers, though you may hard time choosing where to go between the golden dunes of Maspalomas, and Playa de Las Canteras on the opposite end of the island, which boasts nearly two and a half miles of pristine white sand.
However there's more to Gran Canaria than beaches. Over forty percent of Gran Canaria is protected UNESCO biosphere reserve, and the mountainous interior and the verdant north-west of the island offer cooler temperatures and some breathtaking scenery. Or for other Canary Island destinations, Hotels4U offers a wide range of hotels in Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, as well as all inclusive and cheap deals in Tenerife.
