Gran Canaria travel guide

Beaches · Nightlife · Geologic Formations
Often described as a "continent in miniature" because of its wildly varied landscapes and climates, Grand Canaria is mostly known for its long coastline where tourism thrives at modern resorts. The island is also a ideal for sightseeing by bike or on foot. A wide range of trails, from easy to challenging, link the island’s picturesque coastline and the quieter inland areas, which are dotted by green ravines and sleepy villages. Savvy travelers explore the island’s ancient but well-preserved cave dwellings, many of which have been turned into small restaurants serving a myriad of local delicacies unlikely to be found on the menu of any big-city eatery.

Geologic Formations · Beaches · Nightlife
Today, the entire island is a World Biosphere Reserve, with over 500 different kinds of plants, 17 of which are endemic. Lanzarote’s beaches may be why most tourists choose to visit, but the island’s stunning landscapes also include impressive mountain ranges and a vast desert often compared to the surface of the Moon. Little is known about the history of Lanzarote, as most archaeological evidence sits buried under several layers of lava. The volcanic eruptions of the 1730s disrupted a brief period of prosperity and covered a quarter of the island’s surface with lava, destroying 11 villages and its most fertile farmland.
