Every year, almost four million people visit the third largest of the three Canary Islands to sunbathe and enjoy the lovely climate. Others prefer to hike in the mighty mountains. And some just stay close to the capital of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and dive into the urban bustle. The island offers a personal paradise and a refuge for people who need a respite from everyday life. Rolando invites us to discover remote places, hidden gems, and quiet corners away from the throngs of vacationers. He knows every road on the island, and he shares many of his favourite insider tips in this guidebook. Gran Canaria will always be a tourist destination, but you will be surprised and enchanted by the diversity here. Discover the island far away from the all-inclusive resorts. "Va a flipar!" as they say here - "you will flip out with happiness".
