Best cities to visit in Gran Canaria

  • Maspalomas: The trendiest location in Gran Canaria is not only full of resorts and a buzzing hub for nightlife and fine dining, but also boasts incredible beaches and natural beauties, such as the Maspalomas dunes. 
  • Roque Nublo: Hiking to Gran Canaria’s famous natural volcanic rock is a must for anyone who visits the island. Located in the UNESCO Roque Nublo rural park, the emblematic rock sits at 1,813 m altitude and is an astonishing 67 m tall. 
  • Pico de Las Neves: Standing at 1956 m altitude, Pico de Las Nieves is a popular tourist attraction for the incredible views of the island available from its highest point. The road to the top can be narrow and challenging, so a compact yet potent car is best for reaching the mountain’s peak.
