Camping in Gran Canaria is an excellent option to know one of its less tourist and more local facets. In addition, being in contact with nature and the environment, you can get a total disconnection. There are several campsites and camping areas in Gran Canaria. Below is a small map.
Official camping areas in Gran Canaria
In these cases you must request in advance a permission to the Cabildo of Gran Canaria. I am afraid that it is only available in Spanish… On the other hand, there are other areas and beaches that are not officially designated as camping areas, but we do not know that you will be fined for it. They are all the following.
