Home to one of Europe’s most famous beaches as well as an abundance of historic architecture and natural beauty, Las Palmas is much more than just a place for fun in the sun. Hike the breath-taking Bandama Caldera crater, discover the interactive Elder Museum of Science and Technology, or for those just looking to relax, grab a lounger and top up your tan on the beach, or visit the high-end boutiques and shop until you drop.
Things to do in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria:
The epic Caldera de Bandama is a volcanic crater stretching 1,000 metres in diameter. Thanks to the observation platform you can enjoy the sweeping views from the top, or – for the brave – take the adventurous hike down into the crater itself.
Casa de Colon
This excellent, informative museum – and originally Christopher Cloumbus’ house before he embarked upon his travels - is dedicated to the history of the famous explorer. Visitors will find his personal possessions, drawings, diaries and a portrait, as well as two talkative macaws.
Elder Museum of Science and Technology
Specialising in hands-on interaction, the Elder Museum of Science and Technology features weird and wonderful scientific exhibits. With four floors of content, you’ll find everything from physics to biology, art to engineering and even a planetarium.
Among Europe’s most famous city beaches is Las Canteras, a golden-sandy beach with calm waters perfect for swimming and year-round warm weather. Spend the day snorkelling, sunbathing and swimming before filling up for dinner at the restaurants and bars.
Las Palmas Cathedral
Considered the most important monument of Canarian religious architecture, Cathedral of Santa Ana features Gothic, neoclassical and Baroque styles of architecture. Inside, you’ll find more stunning examples of expert craftsmanship as well as a tower from which you’ll see stunning views.

Value for money
Serving staff were very efficient and overall it was a comfortable experience but lacked any wow factor. The basics were however good. Shore excursions were overpriced and poorly run - guides (with one exception) did not use Vox so impossible to hear what they were saying unless you spoke one-to-one with them.

Amazing Azamara Quest. Wonderful service and superb food. Felt very spoilt especially as there was more crew than passengers.

Everything was fine but it was a repeat of the week before due to us taking a back to back cruise. Same shows, same menus etc.

We did not go on any of the excursions as we like to go off and explore ourselves (which we could not do on this trip) plus they are quite expensive. Apart from that the cruise was very good.
