Gran Canaria is the third largest island in the Canary Islands , and has the largest population. It's often described as a "continent in miniature" because it has so much variety to offer.

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, in the North East of the island, is one of Spain's largest cities and the second-largest port in Europe.

The south coast of the island is now dominated by the tourist resorts which generate most of the island's economy.

The centre of the island is mountainous, with the remains of ancient pine forests on the peaks.
