Las Palmas holidays - gran canaria
Smart hotels and luxury residences
If you want to be at the heart of everything that happens on Gran Canaria, you need consider a Las Palmas holiday. The island’s capital is always busy and bustling, yet also offers fine beaches and more secluded spots for you to escape to.
One of these beaches, Playa de las Alcaravaneres, is the island’s second largest, and home to its two foremost sailing clubs, so you’re sure to spot plenty of those big, shiny yachts! But the more popular beach is Playa de Las Canteras, considered by many locals to be the island’s best – which one will be your favourite?

As you’d expect, that means Las Palmas certainly has enough attractions to keep dedicated shopaholics happy while they’re here. But the city’s setting means this is no mere modern metropolis, and has plenty of heritage to explore, including well-preserved churches, palaces and museums. This was the place from where Christopher Columbus embarked on his voyage across the Atlantic, so you can understand why the city is so proud of its seafaring tradition. His house is another of the can’t-miss locations in Las Palmas.
Today, the harbour area is where you’ll find many of the city’s holiday accommodation, with plenty of choice if you’re looking for a Las Palmas package holiday or all-inclusive holiday.
And of course, that means the city’s nightlife is right on hand too, with the Parque de Santa Catalina acting as a hub for many of its top clubs and bars.
One thing’s for sure about a Las Palmas holiday – you’ll be pushed to fit everything in! But with plenty of choices of holiday deals and offers, you should find something to suit you perfectly. Check out the latest availability for your preferred dates from The Co-operative Travel today.
