Paisajes con Encanto

 

 

 

Dunas de Maspalomas (Maspalomas Dunes)

To the south of Gran Canaria is situated the Natural Reserve of the Maspalomas Dunes. More than four hundred hectares of golden sand dunes make up this unique landscape, bordered by Maspalomas Beach, one of the largest tourist beaches on the island.

 

Roque Nublo

From the Nublo Rural Park one has a domineering view of the natural landscapes of Gran Canaria. From its summit spectacular slopes populated with Canarian pine and craggy valleys of extraordinary beauty, which form part of the Tejada Basin, open up before our eyes.

 

Barranco de Guayadeque (Guayadeque Gully)

In Agüimes and Ingenio, in the southeast of Gran Canaria, is situated Guayadeque. In this deep gully one finds the troglodyte village of Cueva Bermeja (Bermeja Cave), as well as welcoming restaurants built into the mountain rock. A visit to the Gully’s Interpretation Centre, which shows the visitor what the surroundings looked like in pre-Hispanic times and the natural richness of the flora and fauna of the gully, is also an obliged visit.

 

Fataga

The Fataga Gully cuts through the municipality of San Bartolomé de Tirajana, in the south of Gran Canaria. Its great geological value makes it a protected area, since it contains some of the best preserved natural habitats on the island, as well as large oases of palm trees dispersed along its causeway.

 

La Sorrueda

In the basin of the Tirajana Gully one finds an enclave of great scenic value. La Sorrueda Dam and Palm Tree Reserve offers visitors one of the most beautiful palm tree areas on the island of Gran Canaria, sheltered by imposing mountains and cliffs.

 

Jardín Canario

A visit to the Viera y Clavijo Botanic Gardens, in the Guiniguada Gully, becomes an enjoyable excursion that brings us closer to the great variety of endemic flora from the Canary Islands and the Macaronesia. Pine, palm and drago trees intermix with the last vestiges of the laurisilva trees in a unique natural surrounding.

 

Real Club de Golf de Las Palmas (The Royal Las Palmas Golf Club)

The island of Gran Canaria has the privilege of having the oldest golf club in Spain, located beside the crater of an old volcano: Bandama. Enjoying a day in the Royal Las Palmas Golf Club (Real Club de Golf de Las Palmas) is a real luxury, since from anywhere on the golf course one can delight in gazing at the surrounding deep spectacular natural gullies. 

 

Vega de San Mateo

The irregular orography of La Vega de San Mateo has allowed this area located towards the centre of the island to have one of the most beautiful natural surroundings, due to the lushness of its vegetation and the fertile lowlands that open up to the sides of its gullies.

 

Valle de Agaete (Agaete Valley)

Hidden in the north of Gran canaria is one of the most beautiful natural vestiges of the island: the Valley of Agaete. Here one finds a great variety of exotic plant species and areas where coffee is cultivated. In the highest part of the Valley lies the Tamadaba Natural Park, which contains one of the most important pine tree reserves of Gran Canaria.

 

Valsequillo

In the interior of Gran Canaria, Valsequillo lies hidden. This place captivates the visitor with extraordinarily beautiful landscapes around Los Cernícalos Gully. Willows, wild olive trees and almond trees are some of the plant species found in this corner of the island.
