Gran Canaria is part of the Spanish Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, situated off the northwest coast of Africa.
Due to the different climates and a variety of landscapes found on Gran Canaria, it’s commonly referred to as a ‘miniature continent’. Its diverse terrain comprises long beaches and dunes of white sand contrasting with green ravines and picturesque villages, whilst a third of the island has been declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
Although it’s only the third largest island, Gran Canaria makes up almost half of the population of the Canaries, which means vibrant bars, exquisite restaurants and fascinating museums are readily available.
Due to its centrality in the Canaries, Gran Canaria is a great departure point for the other islands in the archipelago. You can also sail to a couple of ports on mainland Spain, so there’s no shortage of ferry options.
La Palma is the greenest and most north-westerly of the Spanish Canary Islands, found directly north of El Hierro.
Worthy of its nickname, the ‘Pretty Island’ has been classified a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, boasting the most immaculate landscapes of the archipelago. La Palma attracts mostly walkers and outdoor enthusiasts, with tourist-filled beaches practically non-existent. Instead it offers imposing volcanic craters, serene forests and a vast National Park filled with fascinating wildlife. When the sun sets, La Palma retains its beauty; the island’s strict light pollution laws have earned it Starlight Reserve status, resulting in truly mesmerising night sky views.
From almost every island in the Canaries, you can sail to La Palma’s port in Santa Cruz, with a number of ferry operators offering regular sailings. There are also weekly, long-haul ferry crossings from Cadiz, on the Spanish mainland.
