About Gran Canaria
The sunshine island Gran Canaria is one of the Danes' favorites through time - and it is certainly not without reason. A nice climate all year round, fantastic beaches, large selection of hotels and a well-stocked selection of restaurants, bars and just the right atmosphere in general. Here you can relax by the pole or the beach, or you can go on an excursion or go 18 holes on one of the golf courses.
The beaches are shallow, making them child-friendly. A common factor that unites all coasts and beaches is the quality stamp that Cyprus consistently receives every year. The island receives awards, distinctions and top rankings for its water quality and safety, its eco-initiatives and its general cleanliness on the beaches. Cyprus is the proud recipient of 68 Blue Flag beaches - an eco-label awarded to beaches and marinas across the globe that meet its standards - and has also been named 'Europe's cleanest bathing water', year after year.
