Gran Canaria See & Do

The Canary Islands consist of seven large islands, there are some smaller one but the main ones are Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Tenerife, La Palma, La Gomera, and El Hierro.

The island of Gran Canaria is more than meets the eye. It is split into three unique atmospheres; you have a vivacious capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the shopper’s delight of the commercial sector, and the sprawling white, sandy beaches of Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas in the south. In order to get around, we recommend renting a car in Gran Canaria to experience every location, including any little detours you would like to make along the way.

Getting Around

Gran Canaria

You can pick up your rental car at Las Palmas Airport or in any of the major resorts on the island, Avis Hertz, Sixt, Europcar operate here, as well as local alternatives for competitive rates. What isn’t recommended, however, is booking your hire car when you arrive It will cost a lot more if you do this.

If you start from top to bottom, as soon as you arrive, you’ll start high up on the rocky landscape of Gran Canaria. There are some great hiking trails that lead into Caldera Pinos de Galdar. Hop into your rental car and start heading inland, right in the middle of the island sits the Pico de las Nieves, this is an excellent spot to get the full perspective of such a beautiful island. You’ll also be able to see Mount Teide over on the neighboring Tenerife.

You can find a hiking trail practically any direction you drive on Gran Canaria, leading into caves, romantic lakesides, forests, and of course the walks along the beaches. The best thing about this island is the strong level of accessibility, both by rental car and by foot.

Beach Life

Car Hire Maspalomas

Gran Canaria has a great breadth of beaches, there are so many favorites, each with their own personality. Starting off with the most famous beaches are Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas, this section of beaches are fully nude, people come from all parts of the world to sunbathe here. Nude beaches a generally much more quieter and chill, but you can go scuba diving in the nude. The Amadores and “Puerto Rico” beaches are also worth mentioning, they seem to be always packed with surfers and activities.

Scuba diving is also very popular in Gran Canaria. The reason being is due to the sheer level of clarity and comfort while in the waters. They are warm, vibrant, and home to some of the coolest species of sea life, like the Damselfish, Clownfish, Parrotfish, Angel Sharks, Butterfly and Mobula Rays.

We highly recommend taking surfing and scuba diving lessons while you’re in Gran Canaria, they are affordable, educational, and will really make your experience on the island much more memorable.

Gran Canaria makes it very easy to drive your rental car from one beach to another, experiencing all there is to offer. You can even drive yourself off the beaten path, all the way to a nearby golf course. The oldest gulf club in Spain is found on the southern tip of the island.
