Destination information – Sol Barbacan

The Canary Islands are a volcanic archipelago off the coast of Morocco. Politically and culturally they form part of Spain and, therefore, the European Union. Gran Canaria is one of the largest islands and is located in the south, at about the same latitude as the Bahamas, Miami and Dubai.

ATTRACTIONS OF GRAN CANARIA

Gran Canaria offers a variety of tourist attractions for all the family: from sun and beach all year long, to stunning nature reserves, golf, water sports, spas, theme parks, cultural routes, lively nightlife and attractive low tax shopping.

The north of the island is green and lush. Here is the vibrant capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The interior offers mountain scenery, ideal for adventure sport enthusiasts. The south, by contrast, is arid. At its most southern tip are the best beaches and the tourist resort of Maspalomas, which consists of several different districts, amongst which the Playa del Inglés is famous for its great entertainment.

ETERNAL SPRING CLIMATE

Gran Canaria offers sun and fun, but also safety and comfort. Its climate is stable throughout the year, without the bad weather of other tropical destinations. The currency is the euro so no special precautions need to be taken before or during your stay. The great sense of security results in a particularly comfortable and tranquil vacation. The island’s tourist professionals often speak several languages and understand your expectations, as they have been welcoming Europeans for many years now. Come to Gran Canaria, enjoy the Sol Barbacán, and we are sure you will want to come back!
