Situated on the south coast of Gran Canaria
,San Agustin offers a refreshing change to the buzzing streets of its neighbour, Playa del Ingles. As part of the Maspalomas region, a stay in San Agustin will leave you within easy access of lots of local attractions and amenities. However, if you're after a snippet of beach on which to stretch out and relax, it's a great resort for that too.
While there are great Swedish connections in the resort, it's also a top holidaying hotspot for Brits looking for a bit of sunshine. San Agustin has been around for decades ' in fact, it was one of the first resorts on the island that helped to make it one of the Canary Islands to beat as far as sun-drenched holidays are concerned. While it's certainly experienced as a tourist resort, it still remains quiet and laidback compared to the buzz that other resorts have.
If you need an up-tempo evening, Playa del Ingles is next door. Otherwise, there's a sunlounger with your name on it when you choose San Agustin holidays!
This waterpark can be found in the heart of Maspalomas and offers some fun in the sun for all - no matter how old you are. With a total of 33 slides, ranging from thrilling chutes to a Polynesian mini-land for the youngsters, Aqualand offers a great alternative to the beach for a day.
This western-styled theme park continues to be a big hit for all ages. Whether you prefer to watch some of the re-enactments in the dust, including saloon fights and showdowns, or you'd rather sit back and enjoy some western grub at one of the restaurants on-site, there's plenty to see and do. Are you feeling lucky? Head there on Friday for the barbecue and evening show for a holiday night out with a difference.
The island's capital is just 40 minutes away and with plenty to see and do within its limits, it'd be silly not to take the opportunity to explore. From walking the cobbled streets in the Vegueta Quarter to taking the lift to the top of the cathedral so that you can soak up the views, you could easily occupy your day in the area. If all else fails, the Tiana district would be a hit with shopaholics!
