Day 1: Las Canteras Beach + Local food + Los Alisios shopping centre

You can’t leave Gran Canaria without strolling through the lungs of the city. Las Canteras is an obligatory stop for anyone visiting the island. Enjoy the breeze and the sound of the sea while you have a drink on one of the terraces along the long avenue. You can also make the most of your visit by taking a swim or practising a water sport among the various water sports on offer in the schools around the island.

Another must when visiting the Canary Islands is to try the local food. Take advantage of your visit to this beach to enjoy a wide variety of restaurants on the Paseo de Las Canteras that will offer you delicious proposals. In fact, in practically any area of Gran Canaria you will find typical dishes such as papas arrugadas with the famous mojo picón, a variety of cheeses, ropavieja, and others not to be missed.

In the afternoon, we can go to one of the newest and most modern shopping centres in the capital. In the Alisios Shopping Centre, we will find a large number of shops where we can take the opportunity to do our shopping or simply enjoy its open-air space.

Day 2 (morning): Cruz de Tejeda + Roque Nublo

The second of the 3 days in Gran Canaria will also be very worthwhile. If there is one thing the island is known for, it is its great variety of beautiful villages, and Cruz de Tejeda is one of them. One of the essential things to do in Gran Canaria is to visit this natural beauty. 

The journey to this beautiful village is an experience that culminates with views of one of the island’s emblems, Roque Nublo. Breathe in the fresh air as you visit one of the most incredible places in Gran Canaria that will leave you speechless.

Day 2 (afternoon): Walking the streets of Vegueta + Triana 

Vegueta is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Gran Canaria. Its architecture alone makes it worth a visit, but if you add to this the amount of things to see, it makes your stop a must. 

In its streets we can find places such as the Cathedral of Santa Ana, where we can delight in its presence, the Museo Canario, which allows us to learn about the history of the Islands; the Centro Atlántico de Arte Moderno (CAAM); the Casa de Colón and many more to learn and enjoy.  

Right next to Vegueta, you will find the Calle Mayor de Triana, where you can stroll around as you see different businesses. 

Dive into its alleys, where you can continue discovering other shops and enjoy the gastronomy you can find in them or simply the good atmosphere of the place.

Day 3: Dunes of Maspalomas + Beach + Amadores Beach Club

Feel like in the desert with the Maspalomas DunesTake the opportunity to combine beach and dunes, where you will undoubtedly have a great time. Of course, bring your suntan lotion because the weather in the south of the island is almost always sunny and it’s a good idea to protect yourself.

This natural area is made up of three ecosystems: the Dunes, the Pond and the Palm Grove. It covers 400 hectares and is located close to the Maspalomas Lighthouse, which makes it one of the things to do in Gran Canaria without a doubt.

In the afternoon, we can go to one of the best known clubs on the island, located near the beach, where we can enjoy the sea breeze and have a drink to end our experience with a moment of fun and relaxation, and put the icing on the cake to these 3 days in Gran Canaria.
