There’s a bunch of reasons to visit Las Palmas, and you’ll get to see the lot on this easy-to-do tour. You’ll find a bus stop around a minute’s walk from the cruise terminal, on Muelle Santa Catalina, plus a further nine dotted around the capital. Hop off at the very tip of the island, and you’ll be right on the cusp of Playa de las Canteras – a huge swathe of sand that hugs the northern shore. Check out the city’s most colourful spots, like the Jardines de Dorama and the Parque de Santa Catalina. The buses make stops every 25 minutes, so it’s simple enough to jump back on board to visit the attractions at the opposite end of Las Palmas. You’ll find the 16th-century cathedral and the grand Literary Cabinet building this way, and on the way back to the cruise port, you can hop off to see the bobbing masts at Muelle Deportivo marina.
