And with an average annual temperature of 24C, there’s never a bad time to re-discover this island of contrasts. We’ve found 6431 reasons to make this your holiday hotspot this summer.

Why not step away from the shore and enjoy a week discovering Gran Canaria’s mountainous heart? Set in Tejeda, the island’s highest village at 1560m, you’ll stay in one of the island’s most characterful hotels.
