Nearby Attractions

Perfect weather for exploring

All of the island’s destinations are easily accessible from our resort in Gran Canaria, with the farthest attraction being located about an hour away by car. Driving along the island’s scenic costal-highways you are able to enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean, while also being able to explore the art, culture and food hidden in the several small towns nestled along the water’s edge. 

Outdoor adventures in the sun 

Known for having one of the best climates in the world, visitors have the chance to enjoy outdoor activities all year long, both on land and in the water. The warm Atlantic Ocean is home to a variety of species of tropical fish that swim around the region’s volcanic gorges, making this island’s waters an ideal area for adventurous scuba divers. The protected area and diving zone off of Las Canteras beach, located right outside the island’s capital of Las Palmas, is one of the most popular destinations for diving. The majority of the island’s pristine beaches are located on the southern half of the island, next to our family friendly hotel.

Hiking trails

The western coast is the ideal place for any adventure-seekers looking to climb to the Pico de Las Nieves, the highest peak of the island. Other popular hiking outposts in the mountains include the Mirador Caldera de los Marteles and the Mirador del Pico de los Pozos de la Nieve, which can be accessed by car. The mountain trails and nature preserves right outside of the Radisson Blu Resort, offer hikers and bikers plenty of scenic escapades.

While there are plenty of outdoor activities to try, there is an equal amount of stores to stroll through downtown. The open-air shopping environments at Las Terrazas Shopping Center and El Mirador Shopping Center serve as cultural hubs with entertainment both day and night.
