There is a justified reason why Gran Canaria is known as the "island of eternal spring ".
This island has summers with average temperatures differing from 26 to 28 degrees, and in winter from 22 to 24 degrees
The water temperature in winter is on average around 19 degrees in summer to 25 degrees
Another attribute of Gran Canaria, ‘the miniature continent’, is the island’s broadness of only 1,500-square kilometers
In the south of the island you will discover the dunes of Maspalomas, a miniature desert landscape. The south coast is enchanced with many beautiful beaches such as Anfidelmar, Amadores Maspalomas, Puerto Rico and Mogan.
If you go to the center of the island, you must be aware that Gran Canaria is an island of volcanic origin. You will find deep craters, vast pine forests, meadows, grazing sheep and cattle in the deep valleys, and dense vegetation mainly in the northern part of the island center
The northern coast of the island is the true paradise, especially for surfers
Here you will find dozens of surf spots and dream-like fishing villages such as San Felipe, Los skirt, El Agujero, Sardina or Caleta de Arriba
Right next to the surf Spots are also some very interesting archaeological sites such as the Cuevas Pintadas, Cenobbio de Valeron and the remains of the Native village El Agujero, which you may want to visit.
