Where to sleep in Gran Canaria?

Looking for information to know where to sleep on the island of Gran Canaria? But also what to see in Gran Canaria? You liked it, I give you all the good advice to plan your stay. In this article (as in all the others) no blah, let's get straight to the point!

During your visit to Gran Canaria, in my opinion, you have mainly 2 regions for you stay in Gran Canarias with the advantages and disadvantages of each:

  • To the capital Las Palmas (in the northeast of Gran Canaria) and its magnificent large beach, Las Canteras: the advantages and the good of having everything in the place, a superb city and its Spanish animation, and a sensass beach; but the weather is a little less hot and sunny than in the south (think about it if you go in winter)
  • South of Gran Canaria, in Playa de Las Ingles and the famous Dunes of Maspalomas, San Agustín, Puerto Rico, Mogan. The big advantage for me in winter is the heat and the sun.
  • Expect a lot of concrete at these spas! But a few miles inland and that's the best!

So it all depends on what you want to do!

In my article visiting Gran Canaria I have put road maps, with googlemap ... Like the one I did to discover the interior:

5) Where to go out in Gran Canaria

All the tourist centers of Gran Canaria offer a series of bars, restaurants, discos; the nightlife is particularly intense, very fun and noisy, especially in Playa del Inglés (it's a choice!)

To Las Palmas:

  • I recommend Le Restaurante de Cuchara, 37, Alfredo Jones street, in Las Palmas, near the beach, really excellent with family and Canarian cuisine, for a very fair price.
  • Go to the Plaza de España, in the Mesa y López neighborhood, it is always lively until morning! Get started at the Heineken Café, this is where canaries start their night!
  • This is a good address for a tapas bar: Tasca Siete Viejas at 6, rue Pelota. It is very good, inexpensive and warm!
  • Las Casquias, a room where you can listen to live music for free.
  • The Mojo Club, next to the Alfredo Klaus auditorium, on the beach, there are DJs full of energy!


To Playa del Inglés:

It's a bit crazy, I think tourists only sleep for a nap !! You have to go to the shopping centers, which is where the best clubs are.

  • Go to Yumbo (famous for its gay scene) or Mantrix, Kasabh (very djeun!) And Plaza. In July 2010, the famous Pasha opened its doors in Playa del Inglés.
  • In Meloneras, there are still quite a few stylish cafes and you can have your little cocktail in front of the sunset.
