This map covers the Spanish holiday destination of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands. Tourist attractions are highlighted with a red flag. The map is supplemented with photographs and text.
A wealth of diverse landscapes and a wonderland of curious flora await the visitor to Gran Canaria, in our opinion the most underrated of the Canaries amongst countryside enthusiasts. It's hard to believe that such a small island (1532 sq km/600 sq mi) has so much to offer. And yet it's often been referred to as a 'continent in minature'. If you travel across Grand Canary for a day by car or on foot you will see for yourself! From the hub of the cumbre, the island's great saddle, ravines are born and fan out seaward like spokes on a wheel, gouging enormous valleys in their wake. Between them there are magnificent barrancos (ravines). Each has its own little secret to share. In the Barranco de los Cernicalos there are knee-deep grasses and a chuckling stream; the Barranco de la Aldea hides an emerald-green reservoir; the Barranco de Gg opens out to an incomparable beach. These are but a few of the island's breathtaking ravines... and this is only the start of what there is to explore.
