| 5 min read

With a population of just under a million, Gran Canaria is the largest island in the Canary Islands, a bunch of islands belonging to Spain just off the coast of Africa. Gran Canaria is foremost a vacation destination with amazing beaches all around the island. The Gran Canaria climate is particularly interesting because although the island is relatively small, there are different climates and landscapes all around it. The island is known as the “little continent” because of its biodiversity and as such two-thirds of the island are protected by UNESCO. Historically, Christopher Columbus made his first stop here from his voyage from the Americas. Get one of these top Airbnb vacation rentals in Gran Canaria and explore the beautiful little island.

The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 17, 2024.
