Gran Canaria and Tenerife
The capital of Gran Canaria is Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Here you can discover the historic district of La Vegueta with the Santa Ana Cathedral and Columbus' house. Or go to the beach of Playa de Las Canteras to swim and snorkel. Looking for adventure? Outside the capital, you can walk or cycle in beautiful nature. How about the sand dunes of Maspalomas and the impressive Roque Nublo rock? Rent a car through Transavia Holidays and visit quaint fishing villages like Puerto de las Nieves. Visit the neighbouring island of Tenerife and discover the beauty of nature and the sea. Experience the beautiful beach of Playa de la Teresitas, with soft sand and palm trees. Spot dolphins and whales on a boat trip or explore the national nature reserve Parque Nacional del Teide. The island of La Gomera is also home to a national park: Garajonay. Both parks are highly recommended and deserve their spot on UNESCO's World Heritage List.
