The 13 best things to do in Gran Canaria

Of all the Canary Islands, Gran Canaria is easily the most diverse—and best things to do in Canaria are a testament to that. From the surf of the surging Atlantic to the turf of its lush north, Gran Canaria is an island of microclimates in Spain. In fact, the best advice for anybody hiking its eminently trekkable terrain is to make like an onion and wear plenty of layers you can peel off and then reapply as you cross into what feels like different time zones. Here’s our guide to the island. Done something on this list and loved it? Share it with the hashtag #TimeOutDoList and tag @TimeOutEverywhere.
