In terms of surfing, Gran Canaria betters all its Canary Islands counterparts. The excellent surfing conditions led to dubbing Grand Canaria the Hawaii of the Atlantic. Gran Canaria is also a Biosphere Reserve, which is always an incentive for those who get a thrill out of, let’s say, bird watching. The bottom line is Gran Canaria is an excellent tourist destination, and the concept which describes best its character is diversity. It’s not for nothing that Gran Canaria has also been dubbed the Miniature Continent of Spain.
