Take in the 360 views of the island from the Sandunes in Maspalomas from the distance of a sail boat, watch the quaint villages bustling with activity, or marvel at the glistening moon’s reflection on the ocean before night-diving. Whether you’re an avid photographer, addicted to Instagram or keen to soak up some of the world’s best views, create the ultimate couple envy by visiting Gran Canaria and sharing it with your friends. After all, Gran Canaria offers unparalleled opportunities for a picture perfect trip!
Water babies visiting Gran Canaria will feel at home at the island’s Gloria Palace Amadores Thalasso Hotel, with the luxury spa retreat designed with picturesque views in mind, making the most of the vast stretches of azure Blue Ocean. From the moment you arrive, standing within the glass lift built into the cliff, the dramatic views of the beautiful ocean are slowly and impressively revealed to guests. Then, once within the hotel, you’ll discover the calming reassurance of water, with stunning ocean views from each of the windows. Tip toe out onto the spa’s balcony or sink into the heated seawater pool to marvel at the stunning vistas feeling luxuriously pampered and relaxed.
Known as “Little Venice”, Puerto de Mogan is a must-see for those looking to experience the culture, a pedestrianised part of town, bursting with colourful hibiscus plants, flowers and the energetic Spanish language. Take your phone with you for Instagram-worthy shots of authentic tapas, beautiful cobbled streets and views of the gentle waves lapping the sides of the port’s sail boats.
Stretching from the eastern parts of the island to the resort towns of San Augstín and Playa del Inglés is a sight to behold. The sandunes in Maspalomas are unspoilt, beautiful and impressive by size and an essential part of a trip to Gran Canaria. Enjoy the sea breeze, the freedom of space and one of the island’s purest beauties; capture the sandy view using the panorama setting on your phone or for a postcard perfect image to develop when home.
