Sandy beaches, Sahara-style dunes, waterparks, ocean safaris – Gran Canaria’s a family holiday hotspot for good reason.

Whoosh around the waterparks

Book a hotel in Maspalomas, and you’ll be nice and close to the Aqua Sun waterpark. It serves up everything from near-vertical slides to lazy rivers. Atlandita, meanwhile, makes itself at home in beach resort Puerto Rico. As well as sky-scraping slides, it’s got a kid-friendly restaurant and sun terraces.

Trek the Maspalomas Dunes

Want to see camels in their element? Sign up to a trek in Maspalomas. The dunes here are massive, and camel journeys plod through nature reserves and lagoons. Kids can even get a chance to meet baby camels.

Make waves in Playa del Ingles

Playa del Ingles majors in watersports. Parasailing, jet-skiing and windsurfing are on the cards. Plus, you can jump aboard a glass-bottom boat that gives you first-class views of the underwater wildlife. For something even more relaxing, kick back on a catamaran cruise. You might even spy the odd dolphin or whale.
