Gran Canaria, an agreeable island to visit

Here are some facts about the island. Gran Canaria is one of the bigger canarian islands, which are left to the African Continent in the Atlantic Ocean. Some people do say "Cran Canaria" instead of "Gran Canaria", but this isn't proper.

The island of Gran Canaria is not too big, so you can rent a car and drive the hole island in one day.

The beaches of Gran Canaria are normally sandy and there are good waves for Surfers on the Atlantic Ocean.

Shopping is another thing you can do on the island of Gran Canaria. There are many shopping centres in the south of the island. There you can find the tourist stations Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles, where you can also find the most hotels on the island. These places are very attractive for young people because of the very good nightlife in Playa del Ingles. There are many discos where you can dance and drink all the night. Most of them have happy hour all the time. If you want to have a juicy cocktail, you can have it on the beach in a very romantic atmosphere.

Gran Canaria is an island to make holidays also for homosexuals. In Maspalomas you can find many gay-discos and hotels. But don't think there are only homosexual touirists.

The climate of Gran Canaria is very hot in summer and not too cold in winter, so it is appropriate for holidays all over the year.
