Sonnenland is one of Gran Canaria’s quieter and more peaceful resorts and sits to the south of the island. It is also one of the least touristy areas of the island making it an ideal place to visit if you are seeking a bit of authentic Canarian culture. Sonnenland is ideal for just strolling through the streets and stopping off in quaint cafes. If you fancy a bit more excitement on your holiday, you can always take a day-trip to the nearby resort of Masopalomas.

One of the best things to do in the region is to visit the water park Holiday World. This is a fantastic day out for both younger ones and the bigger kids too (I’m looking at you mum and dad)! There is also a big shopping centre a short drive away called Faro 2 which has its own mini golf course, restaurants, bars and of course, an excellent variety of shops. The nearby beach is a little bit of a commute away but offers a selection of watersports for you to enjoy on your arrival.
The accommodation in Sonnenland is rather impressive considering its relatively small size. Hotels here cater well for both couples and families.
