Meet friends in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

Beach day, anyone?

Think mainland Spain, but infused with African beats, Chinese influences & Indian flare. That’s Las Palmas; the heart of the Gran Canaria island. 

This port city has a unique combination of proud locals and lively transients, both lending to the sunny island feel. Step into the bustle with an afternoon of duty-free shopping, or take it a little slower with a cocktail while watching the sun set over the big blue. Or just get lost in the brightly-colored Old Town that dates back 500 years.

Gran Canaria Housing

Just steps from the beach

This time around we’re staying with Repeople, a quiet coliving facility in the best location. We’ll be spread across a two kick-ass properties; a penthouse with tons of natural light and tranquil villa, each a quick 5-min walk from the beach. 

You can expect bright, open spaces, fast wifi, a fully equipped kitchen, outdoor BBQ areas and a sun-soaked rooftop terrace.

Gran Canaria

Work, meet, and collaborate

Repeople will also be making our coworking dreams come true, with 24/7 access, private meeting rooms, a lounge and a flexible hot-desk situation. 

And as always:

  1. The wifi is fast and reliable. No worries here.
  2. It’s within a 15-minute walk to our housing. Buh-bye, wasted commute time.
  3. You don’t have to hear Sharon talk about her cats!

We’ve got everything you need to be productive.


Get the most out of your immersive experience with access to a 6-month Babbel subscription. These app-based language lessons, designed with realistic scenarios in mind, will get you up to speed on conversational Spanish that you can use in real life, before, during and after your trip.

Gran Canaria Highlights


Volcano Hopping

The Canary Islands are themselves a chain of volcanic ocean islands. The last explosion on Gran Canaria left a massive crater — the perfect setting to explore and live out those Indiana Jones fantasies. Then finish your adventure with a glass of vino at one of the local wineries who make good use of the volcanic soil to grow their grapes organically and sustainably.


Mouthwatering Fusion Food

Local Canarian is a rich mixture of native Guanche elements, as well as Spanish, African, and Latin American influences. The cuisine is 1) simple and 2) damn tasty. Freshness is priorotized above anything, which means top quality meats and fish straight from the ocean. You'll also get hearty soups, stews and vegetables. Let's dig in!


Life's a Beach

The beaches in Las Palmas are nothing short of world-class, and you best believe you'll be spoiled for choice. Lap up those rays on Las Canteras beach, a stretch of golden sand that sweeps across the one side of the city or pull up a sun bed on Playa Grande, where the waters are calm thanks to an offshore lava reef. There are tons of hidden spots too, so make sure to pack more than one swimsuit!


Better Wetter

Drop into a different world, below sea-level, where the marine life glows and dances in the sun streaks. And if snorkeling isn't your thing, stay above the water with a parasailing experience that will get your adrenaline pumping! When it comes to water activities on Gran Canaria, there's really something for everyone.


That Barrio Bustle

The energy felt in the vibrant, colorful barrios of San Nicolas and San Juan is second to none. Perched on the top of a cliff, you'll get to take in panoramic views of the city as you wander the narrow, cobbled streets. These neighborhoods were home to some of the first inhabitants of the island, and are steeped in history.


Canarian Hangs

Gran Canaria provides a wide range of public hangs — a social pastime inherited from the Island's European cousin. Kick it with pals in the ornate plazas, watch live performances to local folk music in Pueblo Canario, the traditional Canarian village, or scope the local hipster scene across vintage shops, cute bars and quirky terraces.
