One of the biggest draws of Manchester to Gran Canaria holidays is the array of great beaches where you can enjoy the fabulous weather. The beaches are backed up by excellent resorts, with popular spots including Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas. If you’d rather have a quieter experience on your holiday, try towns such as Puerto Rico and Puerto Mogan.
In Amadores the star of the show is the sweeping beach, where you can lie back in the sand and gaze up at striking mountains while you soak up some golden sunshine. Whichever of Gran Canaria’s beaches you’re on, go for a dip in the Atlantic waters and try your hand at water sports such as parasailing, jet skiing and waterskiing.

When you need to keep your little ones busy, treat them to a day out at the Aqualand water park, or get a taste of America’s Wild West at Sioux City. However you plan on spending your time, holidays to Gran Canaria from Manchester are a fantastic option for your next getaway.
