Why you should visit Gran Canaria
Playa del Ingles
Playa del Ingles runs with the watersports theme, parking jet-skis side-by-side on the sands. Come evening, lively nights serve up family-friendly bars and discos in the king-sized shopping centres.
Maspalomas boasts towering sand dunes imported straight from the Sahara Desert — and you can grab a camel ride to see the dunes Aladdin-style. There’s a lagoon and nature reserve to explore, and some tours stop off to meet baby camels. Then there’s Aqualand Maspalomas. This waterpark is home to the spiralling Tornado and near-vertical Boomerang slides.
Go for a hotel in Puerto Rico, and you’ll be close to Aqua Park — a waterpark with kid-friendly slides and lots of chill-out areas. International restaurants and a five-star entertainment scene make the beach resort a real hit with families.
