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.
The island of Tenerife is the largest and best known of the Canaries group with a coastline of some three hundred and fifty kilometres and attracts over ten million visitors to its shores each year.
The number one reason that people head to Tenerife is because of the year round guarantee of sunshine, making the island of Tenerife a top winter destination.
Weather and amazing beaches aside, Tenerife has so much more to offer, with ravines, as well as spectacular cliffs, forests, and even fossilised remains of prehistoric animals. Tenerife will no doubt offer a unique experience for every visitor.
Perhaps due to its size and undoubted popularity, getting to Tenerife by ferry is relatively simple with numerous choices on offer. With two principle ferry ports, whether you are coming from the mainland (on a long crossing) or island hoping from another canary island, most of the region’s most popular ferry companies call at Tenerife.
