Webcam Gran Canaria
The island of Gran Canaria belongs to the archipelago of the Canary Islands. It is located off the west coast of Africa, but politically it belongs to Spain and therefore to the EU. This makes it a popular destination for friends of partying, sunbathing, nature parks or the annual world-famous carnival. With our webcam Gran Canaria you can take a look at the sunny island at any time and find out in real time what the weather is like. So you can not only get that South Seas feeling at home, but also plan your next vacation perfectly.
Gran Canaria is a round island of 1560 square kilometers and thus the third largest of the Canary Islands. The island is of volcanic origin and is characterized in the center by high mountains such as the Morro de la Agujereada and the Roque Nublo (landmark of the island, Spanish for “cloud rock”) and by rugged, natural valleys. The majority of the 850,000 inhabitants live on the coast, especially in the island’s capital Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. This is also where the majority of the hotels are located for the approximately 1.5 million tourists who choose this island as a vacation destination every year.
