Las Palmas is located in the north-east of Gran Canaria. With its own harbour, it is a major arrival port for cruise ship visitors docking right next to the El Muelle shopping centre. But Las Palmas can also be reached quickly and easily from the south via the wide motorway.
If you like shopping, you will certainly enjoy yourself in e.g. Las Arenas, Siete Palmas, Las Terrazas, El Mirador, or in the newest Centro Comercial Alisios.
Also you can enjoy shopping on the shopping street Triana, or strolling in El Corte Ingles. In short, enough shops to visit.
