Inside the Gran Canaria Marco Polo Travel Handbook:


Sun, sand and more... Four hours away by plane and the sun is shining and the beach awaits... but the coast is not the only attraction of the island. If you take a tour of the interior you will find yourself in a dramatic mountain wilderness. 


The Marco Polo Handbook to Gran Canaria guides you across the sunny Atlantic island, which will enthrall you with its magnificent beaches, green mountains and round-the-clock recreation activities. With its attractive sandy beaches, Gran Canaria is considered the perfect holiday destination and the island's interior is remarkably untouched. The Background chapter lets you find out more about the diverse nature of the island, its history, economy and culture, and about the locals and their everyday lives.


Discover & Understand: Our innovative infographics condense large amounts of data into a format which is easy to understand.


In the mood for: Fun suggestions help you to experience the variety of Gran Canaria, whatever your personal preferences and interests.


Tours: Discover Gran Canaria! Five exciting tours take you to scenic and cultural highlights. One route leads right around the coast, another explores the fascinating mountains, and a jeep tour leads well off the beaten track. All suggested tours are plotted on detailed maps and combine the best and most interesting places to see, with tips for exciting stops along the way.


Experience & Enjoy: All the things which make a trip unforgettable: from eating and drinking, shopping, sightseeing, museums & galleries, staying the night, travelling with children, festivals and going out in the evening. What are the island’s typical dishes and where can you sample them? What is there to do with children? Answers to these and many other questions can be found in this chapter.


Large pull-out map: Includes a separate pull-out map handily placed in a high quality plastic wallet at the back of the book, which can also be used as a storage pocket.


In depth knowledge: Knowledge is king and Marco Polo Handbooks are packed full of information to help you get the best out of your trip. Insider Tips and special Marco Polo insights reveal hidden gems and well-kept secrets. For example why when in Guía you should try some Queso de flor – the local sheep’s cheese – where you can rent a room at the house of pianist Justus Franz, and where to get the best views over Las Palmas.
