Best cities to visit in Gran Canaria

  • Maspalomas: The trendiest location in Gran Canaria is not only full of resorts and a buzzing hub for nightlife and fine dining, but also boasts incredible beaches and natural beauties, such as the Maspalomas dunes. 
  • Roque Nublo: Hiking to Gran Canaria’s famous natural volcanic rock is a must for anyone who visits the island. Located in the UNESCO Roque Nublo rural park, the emblematic rock sits at 1,813 m altitude and is an astonishing 67 m tall. 
  • Pico de Las Neves: Standing at 1956 m altitude, Pico de Las Nieves is a popular tourist attraction for the incredible views of the island available from its highest point. The road to the top can be narrow and challenging, so a compact yet potent car is best for reaching the mountain’s peak. 

Summer in Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria’s beaches are world-renowned, and summer is the peak season to enjoy the best of Spain’s sunny climate, white-sand beaches, and crystalline waters. Playa de Amadores is a popular destination for families, with many water parks and child-friendly resorts nearby, while Playa del Inglés is known as Gran Canaria’s party beach.

Excellent cars to rent, friendly personal

The employee at the counter was very nice and competent. I felt very comfortable with Sixt and we will certainly choose Sixt again next time. Both the pick up and the return of the vehicle ran without problems. No discussions or any shady people who want to make us responsible for scratches that we have not caused.

Phillip H.

It was a fine car we got and the pickup and delivery went smooth. We got an invoice with the total and fuel all done within the 20 minutes of delivering the car.


No extras or hidden fees. We also bought 0 insurance as I have that already covered from home. No issues with Sixt and they didn't charge anything for the damages there was on the car (they were there from the beginning).


The car was new and had only gone 8000 km approximately.


Overall I recommend renting your car here if you need it for your trip.
