    Gran Canaria is a sunny Spanish island with a mild climate and an extensive network of beaches. It is one of the main places in the world to party in full swing during the summer months, with ample sunshine and low temperatures making it extremely popular among tourists from all around the world.

  • What are the most important holidays & closing days?
  • Gran Canaria is a gay friendly island. In fact, it’s the capital of Spain’s Canary Islands and home to more than half of Spain’s LGBT community. Having a LGBT-friendly destination is one of the easiest ways to attract new LGBT travelers, but it also has a ripple effect. When LGBT tourists travel, their spending boosts the local economy.
    Gran Canaria is an island with a ton of history. It is the birthplace of Paco de Lucia, the singer and guitarist of the Buena Vista Social Club. It was once an important centre of the Moors and remained an important cultural centre. The region has a rich art and architecture. And, you have most of the country’s annual festivals and celebrations on the island. Festivities such as Gran Canaria Carnival, Corpus Christi, Nuestra Señora del Pino, Easter, and Rama de Agaete are highly celebrated.

  • What is the best time to travel to Gran Canaria?
  • Gran Canaria, the second largest of the Canary Islands, is a sunny and delightful destination. Gran Canaria is a popular holiday destination, and it is a few hours from mainland Spain. The weather on this island is usually sunny and warm, and the climate of this island is tropical. Gran Canaria is a real paradise for those who like to enjoy beaches and water sports. The beaches of Gran Canaria are some of the best in Europe. The best time to go to Gran Canaria is from May to October (May to October).

  • What are the general opening and closing hours of shops/museums?
  • The shopkeepers in Gran Canaria get to work an hour later than the locals, meaning the locals are the ones going to the shops, first thing in the morning for siesta. The shops open at 8.30 am, which gives most of the locals a good three hours to shop and get to work. This is in stark contrast to the shopkeepers in Gran Canaria and the shops in the rest of the Andalucía region, who usually open at 10 am.

  • How far is the nearest airport from Gran Canaria?
  • The nearest airport to Gran Canaria, Spain, is Jose Maria Cordova Airport in the city of Las Palmas. It is located about 2 hours away from the city of Gran Canaria, and it is a popular point of entry for tourists coming to Gran Canaria.

  • How do I get from the airport to my hotel?
  • You can drive to Gran Canaria from the airport, but it is cheaper to take a taxi for the final leg towards one of the gay friendly hotels. The trip costs approximately €15 from the airport to the hotel, and the fare is €7 per person for the taxi. You can also take the bus to the bus stop on the outskirts of the airport, but you will have to change there to a local bus going further into town. The ride will cost around €1.

  • How do I get from the central train station to my hotel?
  • Before booking a hotel room in Gran Canaria, Spain, you should know that this city has very few gay friendly accommodations. The central train station is the only place to stay that is advertised as gay friendly, and it is not the best place to stay if you want a quiet stay. Just a few blocks away from the central train station is the “Hotel Alva,” which advertises its gay friendly status.

  • Is it easy to use public transport in Gran Canaria?
  • Gran Canaria’s public transportation system is efficient and easy to use. There are no trains to speak of, but there are buses, trolleys, and taxis. Buses come every 15 minutes, and a single ride costs 1.50 euros. Taxis are usually available, but more expensive—a ride will cost you about 5 euros.

  • What are the main attractions of Gran Canaria?
  • Gran Canaria is Spain’s second-largest island, and it’s located in the North Atlantic just west of the Canary Islands. While most tourists visit the port town of Las Palmas, the hidden gem of Gran Canaria is the mountainous interior. Gran Canaria is home to dramatic coastline and stunning white-sand beaches, but it’s also an ecotourist destination with unspoiled wilderness and a wealth of flora and fauna.

  • Which hotels are near the Playa de Maspalomas?
  • Playa de Maspalomas is a beautiful beach that is only a few miles from Maspalomas and is a popular alternative for those who do not want to be on the beach close to the all-inclusive resort of Maspalomas.
