Apr 04, 2024

The island of Gran Canaria possesses a distinctive charm that leaves every visitor yearning to return and immerse themselves once more in its enchanting atmosphere. Whether in the south or the north, the island harbours treasures that linger in one's memory. From Palm Beach, we present a journey through four magical places to visit in Gran Canaria, enhancing your stay at our hotel and making it truly unforgettable. 


1. Maspalomas: Dreamy Dunes and Beaches

Renowned for its breathtaking golden sand dunes and dreamy beaches, Maspalomas creates a privileged oasis of natural beauty that should not be missed. Extending across 400 hectares, the Maspalomas Dunes unfold as a captivating natural spectacle. This wonder becomes even more mesmerizing during sunset, when the sun casts reddish hues across the sky, painting it in warm tones while the sea breeze gently caresses your skin."

Palm Beach is conveniently situated just two minutes away from these beaches, providing you with easy access to golden sands and crystal-clear waters. Take advantage of the island's warm climate to sunbathe or embark on a horseback ride, exploring the natural beauty of this park.

2. The Agaete Coffee Plantation: A Tranquil Retreat

For a serene and exquisite experience, visit the Agaete Coffee Plantation - a true green oasis amidst the arid Canarian landscape. Here, you can stroll through an impressive botanical garden boasting a remarkable variety of tropical plants and exotic flowers. 

The highlight of this place is its coffee plantation as it is the only Arabica coffee plantation in all Europe. Savour a cup of this exclusive aromatic coffee from Agaete while enjoying views of the Atlantic Ocean. An experience that will delight your senses and provide a sense of peace and tranquillity.

3. Natural Pools: Fountains of Pleasure 

For a refreshing dip and an encounter with nature in its purest form, a visit to Gran Canaria's natural pools is a must. One of the most impressive is located at Charco de San Lorenzo, near Moya. These pools are natural formations sculpted by the sea's action on volcanic rock.
