As you may have seen, I recently visited the Spanish island of Gran Canaria (read about my trip with Hyundai UK here, here and here). Situated in the Atlantic Ocean off the north-west coast of Africa, this tourist island is the third largest of the Canary Islands after Tenerife and Lanzarote, but the second most populated. If my accounts and pictures have inspired you to visit this beautiful island for yourself, then here are 10 places you won’t want to miss.
Situated at 1,813 metres above sea level, the imposing rock formation of Roque Nublo (or ‘Cloud Rock’) is an 67-metre tall volcanic chimney and one of the island’s most popular attractions. Situated in the centre of the island near the municipality of Tejeda, this iconic red basaltic monolith is in fact the third highest peak on the island. From here you can enjoy amazing views
