Whilst many of our visitors never explore north of Las Palmas airport, our sophisticated capital combines a magnificent back-drop of the cosmopolitan city against beautiful beaches.

Whilst until recent years, most visitors to Gran Canaria (except those passing through on cruise ships) thought only of the sunny south of the island for their stay, Las Palmas has become a very popular holiday destination, especially for City Breaks. The options of “What to do in Las Palmas” are endless, but for those staying there who do not want the hassle of car rental to join activities in the South of Gran Canaria,  here are our recommendations of activities based on your doorstep.
