There are a few camp sites on Gran Canaria that are open to tourists.  Apart from that, there are camping areas for club members, which normally means a piece of land where a lot of camper vans park.

The sites that you can go to with a tent or your caravan for just a few days are these:


camping_club-003 Wild camping on Gran Canaria is forbidden.  However, on quite a few beaches you'll find people camping in tents, such as Guayedra, Tiritaña and Veneguera.

In and near natural parks there are some official camp sites where you're allowed to stay, if you obtain the necessary permission.

tauro_guantanamo_ii-005 The 'camp site' at Pasito Blanco has actually turned into a residence for many. If you knock on their gate with only a little tent, there will be no room for you to spend the night. People live here, or have their 'bungalows' as second home.

Check the link to our photo gallery to see what the different official camp sites look like.

Free camp sites

You can obtain (free) permits to go camping on one of the more than 20 camp sites in the mountains. You have to apply for the permit at least three days prior to going camping (it would be a bit silly to apply afterwards wouldn't it?) and you can apply via e-mail, phone, fax or in person. Whatever method you use, you'll have to pick it up in person and you'll have to show your ID. The office is open from 08:30 to 14:00 Mo - Fri, 17:00 to 19:00 on Thursday (except during Summer) and on Saturday from 9.00-12.00.
