Gran Canaria. Travel and tourism. The beautiful island of Gran Canaria has a lot to offer the tourist and a wealth of places to visit. From the north to the south, east to west, it’s all here for you to discover. Whether you are with your loved one, in a group of friends or on a family holiday, you are sure to find what you’re looking for to make your holiday experience memorable and exciting, not to mention relaxing. The south is the most popular part of the island, containing such delights as Puerto Mogán (a picturesque village also known as Little Venice), Puerto Rico, Maspalomas, Meloneras, San Agustín and the famous Playa del Inglés. But with such spectacular views and landscapes, make sure you don't miss the rugged north and west coasts, as well as the island's interior. Meloneras really has the Wow factor. The whole area has been renovated with such style and sophistication, that it became a very classy place. You can walk along the promenade, shop until you drop in high-end designer stores like Lacoste and Ralph Laurenbefore sampling cuisine from a whole host of restaurants, including Italian, traditional Spanish tapas, sushi and seafood. Dip a toe in the warm waters at Playa del Inglés and top up your tan on the beach there. It’s full of great places to eat and drink, giving you a perfect place to rest and recharge your batteries. By night, Playa del Inglés really comes alive. If you like music and dancing, this is the place to go!
