Gran canaria

More Chapters coming soon

4 weeks coworking & coliving  on the Canary Islands..

Situated off the northwest coast of Africa, the island of Gran Canaria is often known as a "mini continent" all its own, due to its diversity of landscapes – from beaches and mountains to volcanoes, forests, and plenty of culture to explore! Just a stone's throw from Tenerife and the African coast, it's perfectly situated for exciting weekend trips to balance out the relaxing atmosphere of life on chapter in this gorgeous island paradise.

Explore Endless Coastlines

Clear turquoise waters and fine sandy beaches are hallmark of this Canary Island - so plan to spend much of your time soaking it all in! From remote beaches like Gui Gui to the calm waters of Playa de Ingles and Caribbean-like waters of Puerto Rico beach... there's a beach for every preference! In the evenings, wander the lively beachside promenades and enjoy fresh seafood at one of the many restaurants to dine with spectacular sunset view. 

Las Palmas

The lively capital of Gran Canaria is the perfect "city break" from beach life, with tons of cafes, markets, and shops to explore. Stroll through the picturesque streets, parks, and plazas admiring the architecture, or pop into the Science and Technology Museum or one of the city's many other fascinating museums! This young city has great live music as well.

Volcanic Black Sand Beaches

Explore the volcanic black sand beaches for a stark contrast to the many pristine (and often more crowded) white sand beaches. The craggy volcanic landscapes  are filled with excellent hiking areas, and the cobalt waters contrasting with black sand and mountainous background make for unbeatable photo opportunities. 

Discover mountain villages

Tejeda, is the central highlands of Gran Canaria, an almond town; it's famous for traditional desserts all contain this healthy nut. In the shade of Roque Nublo and surrounded by valleys, the town is tranquil and charming and the perfect place for a rural retreat far from bustle and stress. Let the beauty of the mountains and the natural beauty of the area soothe your troubles away.

Take a Hot Air Balloon Ride

Visiting the Canary islands by land is one thing, but it's entirely another experience to view them by air! And there's no better way than to float right up in a hot air balloon. You can balloon either from Gran Canaria or from Tenerife – both will give you exhilarating mountain and coastline views, an astonishing perspective you can't get anywhere else. 

Stroll Through Firgas

To discover the "real" Gran Canaria (beyond the tourist areas in the south), head north to visit Firgas, a picturesque town known for its charming street called Paseo de Canarias. Get lost in quaint streets, exploring local shops, cafes, and the authentic flair of the island. 

Explore the Maspalomas Sand Dunes

Maspalomas, the second longest beach in Gran Canaria, spreads into vast sand dunes that often serve as an iconic visual symbol for the island. Walking through the dunes truly transports you to what feels like another world, though the desert-like atmosphere is not far from reality.

Play With Dolphins

If you've ever dreamed to interact with wild dolphins, Gran Canaria is the place! Hop on a boat for a day on the water, taking in the breathtaking coastline from the sea and witnessing dolphins playing in their natural habitat. The biosphere teems wtih wildlife here, so you're bound to spot more creatures in your time at sea. 

Adventure Through the Mountains

If you're a mountain lover, the naturally volcanic Gran Canaria has plenty to offer for adventures – including camping, hiking, and motorbiking through awe-inspiring scenic roads off the beaten path. 

Our Coliving Space on Gran Canaria

We'll be calling 2 near identical villas our home on Gran Canaria. There are a number of ensuites available and the villas come with their own outdoor dining area. We've selected these villas specifically with COVID front of mind – the ideal set-up during times when we don't want to be around lots of people in busy cities. The villas are a short 5min walk from each other. 

We'll be located in the center of Las Palmas, but in the quiet area, 5 min walking from Alcaravaneras beach. Up for a morning run on the beach? Or an evening swim with the sunset?

The accommodation comes equipped with good internet, open common areas for work, an outdoor area... and even a BBQ.
