The Sun-Drenched Isle Grand Canary is a folding pamphlet with a pictorial map of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, roughly dated to circa 1960. Published by the Provincial Tourism Board, Junta Provincial del Turismo, the map was likely aimed at promoting tourism and helping visitors navigate the city and island.

The map presents a colorful and vibrant illustration of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, offering a snapshot of the city's charm. With the use of modernist line drawings, the map highlights various landmarks and tourist destinations. Accompanying the map, there are photographic illustrations showing various tourist scenes, capturing the sun-soaked, leisurely atmosphere of the island, which attracted many a traveler.

Listed are numerous hotels and pensions (a type of guest house or boarding house), offering a variety of accommodations to suit the needs of different travelers. The hotels listed range from Pension Bellamar (1), Hotel Oceano (2), Hotel Playa (3), to Hotel Cairasco (16). These establishments were probably popular destinations for visitors during that period, and their inclusion would have provided handy information for those planning their stay.

On the reverse side, the map features a pictorial representation of the Gran Canary Isle. This map would have served as an important guide to the island as a whole, helping visitors understand the geography and key locations throughout Gran Canary.
