Why Gran Canaria?

Gran Canaria is the third-largest island in the Canaries’ archipelago, and locals call it a miniature continent.

It sounds cliché to amazed tourists in travel catalogs, but when you spend some time here, you realize that it’s far from a cliché – mountains, desert, beaches, forests, colonial cities, and small hidden villages. Sound too good to be true? It’s not!

The islands belong to Spain and are not far from the mainland, making them easy to get to from around the world. You don’t need a visa if you’re a European Union resident and you can pay in €.

Known for its excellent year-round weather, Gran Canaria is a great escape, no matter what season you’re considering your company getaway in.

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is the city from which Christopher Columbus planned his voyage to America, and so Gran Canaria is a colonial city that beams with history, and colors. There is plenty to do and explore in the capital city, such as street concerts, restaurants, and the local night-life and surfers call it a paradise.

The New York Times
“Facilities like Surf Office offer the benefits of an office environment while also providing a place to sleep, have fun and interact with colleagues.”

“Mixing surf and socialization creates a better balance in working together and getting things done.”
