The island of wonders
When you think of Gran Canaria you might have certain pictures in your mind: Beaches, party people, big hotel buildings. Well, let me tell you, this island has a lot more to offer - it's so diverse that you can go from the sand dunes to the mountains in one day! Welcome to Gran Canaria. 🇪🇸
This is what we saw the first evening - our hotel ;) RIU Palace Maspalomas.
The hotel is located directly next to the famous...
... sand dunes of Maspalomas.
@lionheaded is taking in the view in the early morning.
Day 1 Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
The biggest city of the island.
San Telmo Park
It's built alongside the mountains of the island.
DAY 2 Salt terraces & the wild coast
Salinas El Bufadero
@lionheaded and the wild north of Gran Canaria
Faro de Punta Sardina
Piscinas de Roque Pietro
Natural sea water baths at the north coast.
DAY 3 Agaete & the west coast
Agaete is famous for its white and blue buildings. And people! 😉
And this church is also one of the landmarks - called "Ermita de las Nieves".
The roads alongside the west coast are quite spectacular!
Make sure to end up in Puerto de Mogán for a stroll...
Or rent an apartment with a balcony there 😉
DAY 4 The mountainous side of Gran Canaria.
Gran Canaria has mountains that go up to over 1.900 meters.
And are actually volcanoes!
You can go from palm tree lined beaches to pine woods in 40 minutes!
There's even chestnut trees!
You can also go from sunshine to fog and rain within minutes!
And from lush woods to deserts as well! 🌵
