It is located around 150 kilometer off the coast of Western Sahara in the Atlantic ocean, the Canary Islands consist of seven major islands and six smaller islands. Gran Canaria is the third biggest of the major islands and although Tenerife and Fuerteventura are larger in size. Gran Canaria is frequently referred to as a mini continent because it is situated between three continents Africa, Europe and the Americas. Its capital is Las Palmas de Gran Canaria , or simply " Las Palmas ." Only 47 kilometers wide, the highest point of this circular island is Pozo de Las Nieves, a peak standing at 6431 feet above sea level.

In Gran Canaria you can most likely enjoy your variations in weather, benefiting from the Gulf flow and landscape surrounding it. The north is typically cooler than the south, which can get cute warm sometimes. Inner regions, due to its mountains, are cloudier and colder, with more rainfall. Gran Canaria is an utter paradise for devotees of sand and sea.
