Thanks to the stresses of everyday life, it can be hard getting yourself to relax, especially when there’s always so much work to be done! So why not treat yourself (and maybe the family) to that break you deserve and escape by jetting off to the beautiful island of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands!
If you’re looking for a destination that’s hot all year round then Gran Canaria is the place for you, as the temperature changes very little between seasons and can be just as toasty in the winter as it is in the summer! This makes the island the perfect choice for those of you who are planning on getting away for a Christmas holiday with a difference (the difference being the sun!)
The small change in temperature throughout the year also means that you can enjoy the beaches all year round and with a great selection of beautiful beaches, Gran Canaria is perfect for those of you who are after a relaxing beach holiday! These can be found near the popular resorts on the south of the island and one of the biggest and most beautiful beaches has to be the beach at Playa del Ingles.
This stunning example of a beach is over 3km long and comfortably wide, so you won’t have trouble finding a sun bathing spot even in the busy summer season. The soft golden sand is perfect for laying on and there are of course, a selection of sun beds that are available for hire. The waters are plenty warm enough for a swim and are crystal clear, making the perfect environment for those who fancy trying a bit of snorkelling or diving.
If you’ve never dived before there are plenty of opportunities to learn thanks to the numerous diving centres throughout the resorts. You will also get the chance to try out some of the adrenaline inducing water sports that include banana boating, parasailing and jet skiing. Also keep an eye out for the popular fishing trips that take you out into the ocean on one of the many fishing boats!
If you’re after some amazing nightlife then you’ll be happy with your decision to come to Gran Canaria, as all of the resorts offer some kind of decent nightlife, however if you wan’t to go the whole nine yards then head to Playa del Ingles, because here you will find some of the best nightlife on the island! Here you can expect to find a bustling club scene with many young tourists who are out for a good time. You won’t have to look very far at all to find a great place to have a drink and thanks to the atmosphere being so friendly and sociable, you can look forward to making new friends during your stay!
No matter what you fancy doing, Gran Canaria has it all and if you’re concerned about price, don’t be! As there are some amazing cheap holidays out there that are just waiting to be snapped up, so you can enjoy a summer holiday sooner than you think!
