Sunshine and Sand, Sand, Sand!!

My son had a great time just rolling around in the endless sand dunes of Playa del Ingles beaches.

A great island with very lively areas, lovely scenery and all year round warm climate.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Modern island and very laid back atmosphere
  • Cons:The cockroaches - too friendly for my liking!!!
  • In a nutshell:A total contrast to it's neighbouring Canary islands
  • Last visit to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria: Apr 2003

    Thanks for the guidance. We stop over there on a cruise back to USA. I guess we get our feet wet and roll in the sand.

    Looks a pretty place! I'm still yet to visit this Canary Island, but looks well worth a visit! Perhaps next Xmas/New Year!
