Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

See the beauty of LAS PALMAS

Las Palmas is a capital of Gran Canaria, one of Spain's Canary Islands off northwestern Africa. A major cruise-ship port, the city is known for duty-free shopping and for its sandy beaches. At Playa de Las Canteras, a coral barrier lines the beach and shelters swimmers. The annual Las Palmas de Gran Canaria carnival brings together flamboyantly costumed performers, music and dancing.


Las Palmas is a popular place to base a Canary Islands vacation. Not only is it the Canaries' largest city, it's also got a number of world-class attractions. Its beach — the 2½-mile Playa de las Canteras — is an attractive urban shoreline.

Best time to travel to Las Palmas


For the highest temperatures the best time to visit Las Palmas is between July and September although the sub tropical climate offers sunshine throughout the year and winter months are equally popular with visitors.



A few days in Las Palmas in February during the famous Spanish carnival. The city comes alive with parties, allegorical floats, music on the streets and it is pleasant to be part of it.
