Gran Canaria is probably the most colorful member of Canary Islands. For the holidaymakers it is worthy to visit the extremely long and beautiful beach of Playa del Inglés. Those who want to take pictures should visit the old district of the capital and wander among its colonial-style buildings with wooden balconies. The tourists are welcome to visit Canary Village and the house of Columbus. For those looking for romantic scenery we suggest the picturesque port of Mogan. The lovers of botany cannot leave out the Palmitos park. Those longing for entertainment can have a quick glimpse at the nightlife of Las Palmas, while during the day they can splash in one of the water parks or spend a pleasant day in the Wild-West village of Sioux City. The hiking fans can feel themselves at home here: they can make a trip into the almost 2000 meters high rocky empire of Pico de las Nieves with its palm trees, flourishing bushes and cactuses, while at Maspalomas they can enjoy real Sahara sand dunes.
