Make A Holiday Rental Villa in Agaete, Gran Canaria, Your Home Away from Home

The tranquil town of Agaete is located at the northern end of the island of Gran Canaria. In recent years, many artists have made this their home, giving the town a different feel than you might otherwise be used to when thinking about Gran Canaria. Mass tourism has yet to take off here, and instead, a holiday rental villa in Agaete is the norm, opposed to a hotel. Fully equipped with everything that you might require, you will feel a part of the community, and appreciate better the pace of life in this picturesque town.

Things to Do on Holiday in Agaete, Gran Canaria Spain

With the sea to the front, and the mountains to the rear, there are a great many activities that can be enjoyed during a holiday in Agaete. Starting with the sea, diving, swimming, snorkelling and wind surfing can all be tried. If you would like to try your hand at fishing, then you could either fish from the shore line, or hire a boat for a half or full day. Inland, the mountains make a superb destination for hikers and cyclists, and there are also areas which make for some challenging climbing.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Agaete, Gran Canaria

Although the village of Agaete is over 500 years old, there are surprisingly few historic buildings there, with the church dating from the 1800’s being the most prominent. For a look at more historic areas in Gran Canaria, a trip out to the town of Galdar should be made, as this once important town houses some interesting architecture, a dragon tree and a painted cave. The towns of San Maria de Guia and San Nicolas de Tolentino should also be paid a visit, and nature lovers will enjoy a trip out to the Pinar de Tamadaba, a pine forest set 1400 metres high. On a very hot day at the coast, a trip here is most welcome to escape the heat!

Weather in Agaete, Gran Canaria

Being situated by the coast, Agaete enjoys the very best weather that Gran Canaria has to offer. The temperatures range from between 20 degrees Celsius during the winter to 26 degrees during the summer. During the winter, it is a rare day indeed that the temperature drops below 15 degrees, and this means that a holiday in Agaete can be taken at any time of year. Rainfall is not really an issue, and less than 9 inches falls during the entire year.

Travel to Agaete, Gran Canaria

Las Palmas Airport (LPA) is the main airport on Gran Canaria, and is, in fact, the fifth busiest in Spain. As such, you can expect many connections throughout Europe and the UK on a wide selection of airlines. Travellers from the UK will be interested in flights from London Gatwick (LGW) on easyJet, Birmingham (BHX) on Monarch and London Stansted (STN) on Ryanair.

Away from the crowds on Gran Canaria

4 of 5
We chose Agaete to get away from the hordes and also as our onward journey was to take the Fred Olsen ferry to Tenerife. This property was fine for our needs - there are three independent apartments and we had the choice of the three and definitely the best was ours - on the opposite side to the entrance with a private patio and views of the ocean, and sunny in the evenings. It's nicely situated in an elevated position in Agaete which includes a parking slot, and only a few minutes from a well-stocked Spar mini-supermarket, The bed and sitting area were fine, the wifi also. Minor grumbles - and probably unavoidable - were rather a feeble shower, and the kitchen was not particularly comprehensively equipped. I would imagine that you would need a car to make this rental realistic but local car hire is cheap and fuel on all the Canary Is is inexpensive, cheaper than mainland Spain. A must visit whilst here is the Los Berrazales vineyard and coffee plantation.

Everything we wanted

5 of 5
Excellent - Lovely spacious well equipped apartment. The owners have been extremely easy to deal with, and we wouldn't hesitate to come back again. Agaete is small town with Agaete port just next door. Lovely walks along the promenade and wonderful views from the apartment over the town and up the coast. The giant Gran Canaria Lizards are entertaining to watch/feed just below the outside area on the hill side.
