- Gran Canaria All inclusive holidays
One of the UK's all-time favourite destinations for a sunshine break, all-inclusive holidays to Gran Canaria let you enjoy this holiday hotspot without having to keep an eye on the purse strings. If you're travelling with children, they can grab a drink whenever they need one, without having to carry any cash of their own, and this leaves mum and dad to make the most of the relaxing resorts, whether lazing by the pool and watching the kids splash in the water, or down on the beach and the Canary Islands' distinctive volcanic sands.
The Englishman's Beach
Among the island's busiest resorts for UK holidaymakers is Playa del Ingles, which appropriately enough translates directly as 'The Englishman's Beach'. You will find this especially well represented in the holiday listings, giving you plenty of choice over where you stay and exactly what's included in your package. With a plethora of local bars and restaurants too though, you might want to allow yourself a little extra budget to get out from your hotel and try some of the local cuisine, or even just to grab a burger or spit-roasted chicken around lunchtime during a day down on the beach.
A day in the dunes
Grab one of the island's most striking photo opportunities by trekking into the dunes of Maspalomas. These towering sand structures are created by the wind that blows warm air across Gran Canaria, and are located immediately alongside the resort of Playa del Ingles, meaning you can be surrounded by a desert-like landscape within a few minutes' walk. Choose your angle carefully for either an arid scene, or the picture postcard favourite with the dramatic dunes in the foreground and the twinkling blue of the ocean beyond. Spend some time climbing the peaks, sliding down the steep faces of the dunes, and all in time to head back to the resort just a few metres away.
Why should I go all inclusive?
Gran Canaria has an extremely well developed tourist market, which is a major economy for the island, as it is throughout the Canaries.
