5 to see in town...

1. Playa del Ingles

If what you need from a holiday are some sunny days, sandy beaches, and surfable waves in a busy, vibrant place that has plenty of activities, shops and restaurants - then this spot is well worth a visit.

where to park?

Pay and Display parking is available across the town, either on the street, or in shopping centre car parks.

2. Cenobio de Valerón

Who doesn’t like to see a cave on holiday? At this site, you get to have a look into any of 290 that are carved into the rock face of the Calazebo Valley. From here, aside from an insight into the history of Gran Canaria, you’ll get spectacular views out across the mountains and coastline of it.

where to park?

As you turn off the main GC-2 motorway from Guia, the site is clearly signposted and a free car park is available.

3. Anfi Tauro Golf

The location of this course makes it irresistible to the golfer. Put your clubs in the boot of the car hire, turn on the radio, wind down the window and catch the breeze on your way to this spot on the coast. Players can look out to sea and feel like they’ve truly got away from it all, just be careful the view doesn’t put you off your stroke.

where to park?

Free parking is available at the course

4. Sioux City

Yeehaw! The cry of a cowboy may not be what you’d expect to hear on one of the Canary Islands, but dust off your spurs, don your cowboy hat and mosey on down to Sioux City just outside Playa del Aguila. Originally built as a film set, this Wild West town is now a place for shows, dining and even a reptile zoo, which are all open until the late evening.

where to park?

All rental cars or horses can be parked outside the park entrance.

5. Masplomas Moonlight Cinema

There’s something really special about being able to curl up on a couch, watching a movie under the stars on a balmy evening. Showing two films a night and offering full waiter service, the Maplomas Cinema makes for a relaxing and unique night out on holiday.

where to park?

Parking is available outside the cinema

and 4 to drive to...

1. Roque Nublo

One of the most famous and highest landmarks on the whole island. This ancient place of worship is a relatively easy hike once you’ve taken the hire car up the bulk of the climb. It’s worth it for the views alone, take your camera.

how to get there?

From the airport, follow the GC-196 highway inland until it becomes the GC-120 motorway. Stay on this road until it splits, and take the GC-130, followed by the GC-600 which will be signposted as the Roque Nublo. Parking is available there.

2. Palmitos Park

Apparently springing from nowhere is this animal paradise in the hills of the south. With gardens and spectacular views down to the ocean, this place is a real oasis. Take the family to see the dolphins, meerkats, amphibians and exotic birds - it's nice to get a breath of fresh air from the crowds in town.

how to get there?

From Maspalomas on the south coast, take the GC-503 highway north for 8 miles and then take a left, following signs to the park.

3. Firgas

This small town on the north of the island is known as the Balcony of the North. Located high in the mountains, you can get an amazing view of the island before you, as it slopes down to the northern coast and Atlantic Ocean. If the view isn’t refreshing enough, pick up a bottle of Firgas Water which comes from a mineral spring just outside town and is bottled here.

how to get there?

From the airport, take the GC-1 motorway north to Palma, then follow the GC-2 along the northern coast. Take a left when you see the GC-20 to Arucas signposted and follow the signs to Firgas from there.

4. El Cabron Marine Reserve

If the heat gets too much, cool off with a visit to the diving hotspots of Stingray Cave and Barracuda Point just off the southeast coast from Arinaga. Transport out to the dive points is available from various operators along the coast - as is all the scuba equipment you'll need. Shop around for the best deal.

how to get there?

From the airport, head south on the Autovia Las Palmas Puerto Rica. Exit on to the Calle Canal and follow this road all the way to the coast. Operators will be easy to find there.
