Why Las Palmas?
Or Gran Canaria for that matter. Watch this video. There are different areas for different activities. I live in Las Palmas which is in the North of Gran Canaria. It has less sun and has some more rain, but the locals are all living there. Nearly half (45.9%) of the people of the island and 18.35% of all inhabitants of the Canary Islands live in this city wiki. The island is about 1500 km2. Not too big, compared to the Dutch island Goeree-Overflakkee with its 6 times smaller size of 260 km2.
Las Palmas is the largest city of the EU lying outside the European Continent. It is located in the northeast part of the Spanish island of Gran Canaria, about 150 kilometres off the northwestern coast of Africa within the Atlantic Ocean. See this map to get an idea.
