We weren’t too adventurous and only drove the ten minutes to Mogan from the port but the scenery is pretty. There’s a nice fruit market with fresh juices that all the cyclists were stopped at. An interesting way for barranco views is that the GC-500...More

Take the car or you can hike up from the village as far as you want to go. Take water and a map to explore fully. We drove all the way up to the Lake - Presa de las Ninas. Hairy roads, take it slowly,...More

Another place in Gran Canaria that offers stunning views and beautiful landscapes. The way up is not that long but definitely worth the visit: huge cliffs, little villages and historic windmills will entertain you all the way along.

A lovely fresh morning walk while on holiday - shake off the night before and start a great day. One can walk up to the garden centre and nursery.

This would be a beatiful area to walk in, but it is in danger of being over-developed, and parts of it are like building sites.
