Winter Getaway to Gran Canaria
Beautiful beaches and stunning landscapes await you in Gran Canaria

Bahia Feliz

The traditional town of Bahia Feliz gives you an authentic taste of the Canary Islands. There are a handful of shops, pizzerias and tapas bars and most importantly, Garbo’s – a 1920s-style theatre with singing and dancing waiters. Windsurfing is a big deal in Bahia Feliz but if that’s not for you, why not try diving, sailing or deep-sea fishing? Or how about a bird’s eye view of Gran Canaria’s mountains, valleys and beaches with a 30-minute helicopter ride?

San Augustin

San Augustin is tucked away on the south coast with dark-coloured sand, calm water and most importantly it has a crowd-free beach, perfect for sunbathing. Holidaying in San Agustin means you get the best of both worlds – the quiet part of Gran Canaria but with the vibrant Playa del Ingles just down the road. Walk to the dunes at Maspalomas, try fiery mojo sauce on your Canarian meal, and hit Playa del Ingles’ shopping malls. Also, with a mix of easy and challenging walking tracks, there are plenty of ways to visit the national parks and nature reserves.


Maspalomas won’t disappoint if you’re looking for the perfect family holiday destination. With one of the best beaches on the island, you will not only get a lovely stretch of soft sand and a calm blue sea but also stunning views of mountains and undulating sand dunes. Holiday World is one of Maspaloma’s top attractions. The huge entertainment centre has 30 plus rides, with attractions for all ages. Don’t stop there, take a boat tour from Puerto Rico’s harbour and see whales, flying fish and green turtles. If you’re really lucky, bottle-nosed dolphins might come and say hello too.

Puerto Rico

You won’t get more sunshine anywhere in Gran Canaria than you will in Puerto Rico. This sunshine can be enjoyed on Amadores Beach, which has golden sand and is a hotspot for watersport lovers, or on Puerto Rico Beach which is backed with a promenade. The Puerto Rico shopping centre is the heart of Puerto Rico’s nightlife and shopping scene with more than 100 stores and dozens of lively pubs and clubs. With mini-golf courses, tennis courts, amusement arcades and a nearby waterpark, Puerto Rico is a family favourite.

  • 19-Dec-22, Cala Nova, 3*, SC, from €649pps, €1,499 (2+1), €1,779 (2+2)
