Where to Stay in Gran Canaria North or South?

Where to Stay in Gran Canaria North or South?

The North of Gran Canaria is really different from the Southern area which is dedicated to the tourism.

Best area to Stay in Gran Canaria South


The best area where to stay in Gran Canaria if you look for beautiful beaches sheltered from the wind, is located in the southwest part of the island, in Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria: one of the most popular seaside resorts on the island.

LAS PALMAS

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is the capital of the island.  I suggest staying in this cosmopolitan city in the summer months which enjoy a stable climate while in winter it is more cloudy and rainy than in the southern resorts.

It is also very touristy but if you are looking for the classic seaside resort in which to spend the winter months, it is better to stay in the sunniest area: in Puerto Rico. Las Canteras, the beach of Palmas, is more windy. Swimming is possible but the water is colder and the ocean is more wavy compared to the sheltered beaches of the South.

However, in February I recommend staying a few days in Las Palmas because there is the famous Spanish carnival and the city comes alive with parties, allegorical floats, music on the streets and it is pleasant to be part of it. 

Las Palmas is a cosmopolitan, young city (there is a university and many Europeans come for Erasmus) full of shops, restaurants and clubs. The main street of Las Palmas is "Calle Triana" very long, full of people, a lively place.

📍 YOU KNOW THAT Las Palmas have the largest carnival in the world after Rio De Janeiro?

I would advise you to stay in Las Palmas at least for 3 nights in order to visit the historic centre and walking in the avenue that runs along Europe's most beautiful urban beach.
