5 interesting facts about Gran Canaria

Hi everyone and welcome to another blog post! Today I will be sharing the top 5 interesting facts about the stunning Canary Island, Gran Canaria. I recently visited the island and knew I wanted to know more about its history! So I went on Google and researched the islands culture and thought I’d compile my research into this list! Hope you find this interesting! Enjoy!

  1. It has a population of approximately 820,000! Almost half of these people live in the Island’s capital city (home to Gran Canaria’s airport) Las Palmas.
  2. It is located in the Atlantic Ocean off the northwest coast of Africa. Which means that if its all year round sunshine you’re after, Gran Canaria enjoys a sub-tropical climate perfect for sun seekers!
  3. Some of the more underrated resorts are the most beautiful! For example if you want quiet rugged coastline then San Agustin is perfect for you to escape the hustle and bustle of neighbouring areas (e.g. Puerto Rico resort.)
  4. It is the third largest of the 8 Canary Islands after Tenerife and Fuerteventura and has the second highest population.
  5. Gran Canaria represents the most southern area of the European Union.
