If you like shopping, you're going to love Gran Canaria!

The big centres on the Gran Canaria provides a multitude of possibilities and provides pleasant satisfaction for the modern consumer.

A Duty Free mecca, your electrical goods, cigarettes, wines, beers and spirits, leather wear and designer clothes are all available at discounted prices.

Everything is more expensive in the south than in the north where there are not so many tourists. If you want to shop you should go to one of the big shopping malls. The closest to the south is Atlantico in Vecindario, close to the airport. Here you can find a great variety of shops, restaurants, bars and cinemas.

In Las Palmas you find the big Las Arenas right next to the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium on Las Canteras. And on the other side of the city, near the harbour, you find the newer El Muelle that also have discos. The street Mesa y Lopez is famous for it's shops and shopping malls, and of course there is the big shopping street Calle Mayor de Triana in the south of Las Palmas. About five minutes drive from Las Palmas you find the big 7 Palmas and El Corte Inglés right next to each other.

If you are interested in local crafts, clothes or food you should go to one of the markets that are held every week in many cities. For those who live in Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas it can often be better to shop in San Fernando, that lies close to the highway north of Maspalomas. This is the place where many locals live, and the prices are lower here.


Some bigger shops and stores may be closed on Sundays in but the general opening hours are 10.00 - 20.00, with a few taking the customary siesta between 13.30 and 16.30..

Supermarkets are usually open between 10.00 - 22.00, although in the tourist resorts they might be open from 08.00 - 23.00 or 24.00

There are ATMs (automated cash machines) all over the resorts and, as in other countries, guard your PIN number.

When using your credit cards in the tourist resorts, again guard your number if the store is using the new system, or ensure that the payment slip is correctly filled in before you sign it.

Centro Comercial Metro
Avda. Italia, s/n - Playa del Inglés

Tel.

Opening hours: 24 h.

One of the best of a dozen or so centres in Playa del Ingles is probably the Metro Centre not that far from the north end of Playa del Inglés' beach (and where all the nightlife is). Really good choice of shops but the owners are expecting tourists so you don't always get the best price or deal, even if you are spoilt for choice.

Playa del Ingles

Opening hours: 24 h.

Once known as "the English Centre", the Gran Chaparral now also very popular with the Dutch.

35100 San Bartolomé de Tirajana

Centro Comercial Anexo II
Paseo Marítimo,  Playa del Inglés
35100 San Bartolomé de Tirajana

Anexo II is located at the north end of Playa del Inglés and right on the beach front. All this is beach shops, restaurants and bars all by the beach. Anexo II is a very busy place by day and by night. The beach here goes on for 6 km and this is the only part with restaurants by it, as well as the only water sports being here too so very much the place to be for a brilliant beach & holiday atmosphere by night and by day.
 

Centro Comercial in San Fernando

Bellavista
Partera Leonorita, s/n (San Fernando)
35100 San Bartolomé de Tirajana
Tel. 928 77 63 89

This is the Canarian district and we recommend that you shop there instead of places like Yumbo and Cita. The prices vary but are usually lower than anywhere else. The difference can be up to 50%! Its worth it to take a look there. The merchants there will also not cheat on you, what you see is what you get and prices are always displayed. As well as the large, local supermarkets (Hyperdino in the Bellavista centre boasts the cheapest prices on Gran Canaria) there's a huge choice of every other type of shop also. Avenida de Galdar is a good street to look along and just in front of it there are two commercial centres aimed for residents rather than tourists.
 

SAN FERNANDO
Av. Tejeda, s/n - San Fernando
35100 San Bartolomé de Tirajana
Tel. 928 76 90 90
C. C. San Fernando, however, is interesting. A long time ago it was the major shopping area around here.
 

Centro Comercial in Puerto Rico

Centro Comercial Puerto Rico
Av. Tomás Roca Bosch - Puerto Rico
35130 Mogán
Tel. 928 56 07 32

This is situated in the centre of the resort and consists of three continuous phases. Whilst accesses are via steps, there are also wheelchair ramps.

The upper floor contains the majority of the restaurants, disco bars and clubs, while the ground floor houses shops, bars and banks. It is here that the larger supermarkets, Netto and Spar are situated, although many smaller ones are scattered around the resort and the other two centres Europa Centre and Agua de Perra as well as some small privately owned outlets.

On the lower ground you will find a small selection of shops, another large supermarket, a pharmacy and the Bureau de Change / Tourist Office, where you can pick up information on tours, etc.. Watch out also for the various kiosks and stands around the resort which give discounts on all kinds of entertainment.
 

 

Here is space for your advertisement. We offer a very cheap advertising, and are able to help you with the Work Out. We are always able to deliver an offer for homepages.
