Welcome to Gran Canaria

A health destination since the 19th century.

The Canary Islands are an international benchmark location for tourism; just take a look at the numbers: we receive 12 million tourists every year. Our association (GCSW&H) is made up of a combination of spa, wellness and health which has benefited both tourism and health tourism in Gran Canaria.

From the year 2008, this Association has been working to expand the options and services for the tourism industry. We do not only offer conventional services related to leisure, enjoyment and the beach, but we also combine those with spa, beauty and relaxation treatments, the medical attention of certain pathologies, as well as a wide range of medical and aesthetic specialities. We are talking about Health Tourism.

The tradition of Gran Canaria as a health destination goes back to the 19th century. We have not invented anything new; we have, however, shaped and structured the contents and organization in order to offer you the best service possible.

The Association brings together nine four-and-five-star hotels as well as two private medical groups, all of them from Gran Canaria. For us, the key lies in being competitive while, at the same time, observing all European regulations and offering a level of quality not comparable to other destinations.

Medical services are provided by the Hospital Perpetuo Socorro and Hospitales San Roque. Hospitales San Roque, a big hospital group exclusively made up of capital from Gran Canaria and with more than 100 years of experience in the sector, is comprised by Hospitales San Roque Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Hospitales San Roque Maspalomas. All these centers are respectively located in the island’s capital and Gran Canaria’s main tourist area. Both hospitals offer quality and safety at a European level and all the medical and surgical specialities that residents and tourists may need.

We invite you to learn more about the range of tourism and health opportunities that the island of Gran Canaria offers you. And as our president MrJosé María Mañaricualikes to say: ‘We are waiting for you in Gran Canaria, an island of health and wellness’.
