Are you wondering what to do in Gran Canaria in February? The island's mild climate means that, even in the supposedly coldest months of the year, you’ll be able to enjoy the sun on a spectacular beach, prepare the most romantic plans for Valentine's Day or enjoy the island's festival par excellence: Carnival.
The fact that February is the shortest month of the year doesn’t mean that it’s the month with the fewest plans of the year. In fact, February in Gran Canaria is one of the most special months.
Murgas, mogollones, spectacular galas, streets full of people in costume and parades bring the island to life, through a festive, joyful and safe atmosphere.
The most eagerly awaited events and highlights of the carnivals, especially in Las Palmas and Maspalomas, are the Queen's Gala, the Drag Queen Gala, the Cavalcade and the Burial of the Sardine.
Gran Canaria is the perfect destination for all those couples who want to celebrate a different kind of Valentine's Day, full of romantic plans in charming places, volcanic coves, endless paradisaical beaches and landscapes of wild nature.
The island offers many opportunities to make this day unforgettable, such as eating in a Michelin-starred restaurant, stargazing from the summit, visiting a wine cellar or watching the sun set over the Maspalomas Dunes.
The beautiful white and pink blossoms of the almond trees at the top of the island are an incomparable spectacle, ideal to visit on foot or by bicycle, but also on tourist trails, family routes and even gastronomic routes.
You can enjoy this unique plant festival while observing the scenery in the middle of the Tejeda mountains. In addition, the fiestas in honour of the almond tree offer good local wine, almond sweets and a lot of Canarian folklore.
Between the 12 January and 16 February 2022, the 38th International Music Festival of the Canary Islands will be held with up to 56 concerts throughout the Canary Islands, including Gran Canaria, of course.
Great international soloists, large symphony orchestras, world-renowned conductors and chamber ensembles and concerts of the Festival En Paralelo, with other musical styles and contemporary dance, will surprise you for the best.
But if there's something better than all of the above, and even more diverse, you have to go to the south of Gran Canaria, to the biggest entertainment and leisure centre in the whole of the Canary Islands: Holidayworld Maspalomas.
Only here you can ride the best rides, go bowling in a professional bowling alley, sing out loud in a magnificent karaoke, solve the mysteries of an escape room, taste the flavours of the world in a gastronomic market...
It’s, in short, the core of leisure and entertainment on the island. A place full of magic where both children and adults will have a great time. There’s no better plan to do in Gran Canaria in February than to visit Holidayworld Maspalomas.
