Spanish archipelago of 8 islands situated in the Atlantic Ocean off the African coast. What is special about it? Well, a lot of things actually, but mainly the weather. It is the place with the best weather conditions for the people to live. No jokes! Gran Canaria is the third largest island, yet one of the most popular. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the capital of the whole archipelago lies in the north of the island. Because of the micro climate regions, north of the island is mainly cloudy and cool. That’s where you don’t want to get for your holiday!
