My last trip to Gran Canaria was very inexpensive – I found a low-euro resort and yacht chartering services for a good price in www.charterthatyacht.com.
This island is in the shape of the sun, so all around there are beaches. You will also find many holiday resorts here and one in particular that the Brits like is the Playa Del Ingles. This is a resort for fun and sun with bars, malls and plenty of beaches.
Relaxing in the Sand
If the party life is not what you are looking for then be sure to check out Campo International. Here, you can enjoy starlit dinners, calm quiet days and sports that are not so active. The weather here is semi-tropical and it was in the capitol, Las Palmas, where back in time Christopher Columbus was waved off for his travels around the world. All along the miniature canals of Puerto Mogan you can take pictures of the Canarian houses with their whitewashed exteriors.
