Gran Canaria has long been a holiday favourite destination within the solo traveller community. With its swathes of sandy beaches, clear Atlantic waters and resorts to suit all tastes, this Solos Holiday is one not to be missed! From its popular hiking trails at Bandama Caldera to its Catedral de Santa Ana and protected sand dunes, Gran Canaria has something for every single traveller. With a combination of modern coastal resorts and picturesque towns full of history, we are sure that Gran Canaria will keep you coming back time and time again.
Grand Canaria’s never ending appeal begins with its beach resorts. Playa del Ingles is a popular resort located on the southernmost tip of the island and as well as a flurry of beaches offers a promenade of bars, restaurants, pubs and shops – enough to keep you entertained for weeks! Elsewhere, if you are a golf enthusiast then immerse yourself in one of our festive golf breaks to Gran Canaria.
In the capital, Las Palmas, take a trip to see the Canary Museum where you can learn about Christopher Columbus’s journey through this extraordinary city during his voyage to America. Also worth a visit is the city’s cathedral. Built over 600 years ago, the Cathedral of Las Palmas has a gothic interior design and an imposing neoclassical facade. Alternately, single travellers can discover the famous 400 hectares of Saharan-sized dunes in Maspalomas that is located not too far away from the capital.
I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
