Natural environments

Gran Canaria is a World Biosphere Reserve. Despite its small size, the island is home to an enormous wealth of flora and fauna and has a very varied landscape, which has earned it the nickname of “the miniature continent”. Out of its natural areas, you really must visit the Nublo Rock in Tejeda, with its spectacular rock formations, the Maspalomas Dunes (San Bartolomé de Tirajana), a true seaside desert with a small oasis in its interior, known as La Charca (the pond), which is of great ecological value; and GüiGüi beach, the only virgin beach on the island, which can only be reached by boat or after a long, 4-hour trek.

Fine cuisine

The cuisine of Gran Canaria has a wealth of flavours and some of its typical dishes will make you fall even deeper in love with the island. Of particular note are “papas arrugadas con mojo”, potatoes with spicy pepper sauce, the star of our cuisine, “ropa vieja”, a complete meal of pulled beef and chicken mixed with other ingredients (potatoes, onion, garlic, etc.), “gofio escaldado”, a fish broth with onion and mint, which puts all the essence of the island in a single dish, and, of course, our traditional desserts, like the “bienmesabe”, made with honey, egg yolks and ground almonds, “suspiros de Moya”, lemon-flavoured meringues, and “Frangollo”, a pudding made with milk, millet or maize flour, lemon, eggs, sugar, butter, raisins, almonds, and cinnamon.
