Gran Canaria – A Nature Reserve
The island of Gran Canaria is a natural beauty, with stunning scenery that is just waiting to be explored by the 2 million visitors that travel to the island annually. Naturally, the majority of visitors are drawn to the southern part of the island, which is home to a large selection of pristine beaches. However, the mountains in the west and the rugged coastline in the east provide just as much to see and do.
Biosphere ReserveA third of the island is a dedicated Biosphere Reserve, protected by UNESCO. This area contains native flora and fauna unique to the Macaronesia region, the islands of the North Atlantic Ocean. Additionally, the Biosphere Reserve includes several rural habitats that can be linked to the island’s original inhabitants.
This spectacular nature reserve stretches from sea level all the way to the summit of Mount Las Nieves. It is these mountains, which represent the island’s volcanic past, that are responsible for the plethora of interesting natural habitats, rich biodiversity and vegetation on the island. After exploring the unspoiled nature and special geology within the Biosphere Reserve, you will understand that it took centuries to create this island’s natural splendor.
