Picture an island that basks in a permanent bubble of warm sunny weather. Then let’s throw in high standard healthcare and education, safety and connectivity. Then consider the low living costs and a Quality of Life score in the top five per cent worldwide.
It’s no wonder we love Gran Canaria and you won’t be surprised to find out that it’s one of Europe’s top digital nomad and remote worker locations. We’re sure you’ll love it too.
Gran Canaria has over 80 beautiful beaches and its highlands reach almost 2000 metres in altitude. This gives it an incredibly varied coast and landscape boasting great surf and golden sand dunes to rugged valleys covered in forest. This variety, plus the cosmopolitan social outlook, give Gran Canaria the reputation of a ‘Miniature Continent’.
You will discover plenty of culture and vast geographic contrast within just a 30 minute drive.
The island’s climate is famous around the world. It’s soaked with warm sunshine throughout the year; many areas get well over 300 days of blue skies. Average temperatures are around 18°C and rarely drop below this at sea level. The capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, is renowned as the city with the world’s most pleasant climate. It also boasts being the city with the cleanest air in Spain thanks to its forward-thinking green initiatives and location right by the coast.
