Spain's biggest botanical garden is a beautiful refuge for the 600 unique plants that make the Canary Islands one of the world's biodiversity hotspots.
The vast garden has everything from lakes full of fish to forests, cliff paths, a cactus garden and lots dragon trees. While its main purpose is to study and protect Canarian plants, it's such a beautiful garden that everyone who comes to Gran Canaria should visit.
Almost all the plants you see as you walk around grow only in the Canary Islands and because there are almost 600 of them, there's always something in flower. Look out for the mysterious and endangered Gran Canaria dragon tree and for the dozens of different viper's bugloss flowers.
Most people visit the bottom part of the garden and miss the cliff paths; It's well worth walking up the steps as there's lots of interesting stuff growing by the narrow stone paths and the views are excellent.
Other highlights include the cactus garden, the waterfall at the south end of the garden and the huge collection of palm trees.
The Jardín Canario is open between 09.00 and 18.00 and opens every day of the year.
