Ready for palm trees, sunsets on the beach and fruity cocktails? Gran Canaria is the place to be for you! Let me give you 5 reasons to get your daily Vitamin D at this beautiful island:
1. Early summer
You don’t have to wait until summer to enjoy nice sunny days. At Gran Canaria it’s already 20-25 degrees in spring. Bye bye, sweaters – hello, sunglasses! Instant summer vibes: check!
2. Exotic vibes
The name of the capital, Las Palmas, already gives it away … There’s lots of palm trees! Choose a nice spot and chill with the relaxing sound of waving palm leaves. Aagh, life as it should be.
And the best part? If you’re travelling from Brussels, this exotic destination is only 4 hours away!
3. Beach, please
Gran Canaria has lots of beaches. Most of them pretty crowded, but there are also some quiet places. The perfect spot for your holiday? Play del Inglés, the more than 12 kilometers long beach.
What to do next? Get yourself a parasol and lounger. Et voilà: you’re ready to do absolutely nothing!
4. Family fun
Planning a holiday with kids? Gran Canaria has lots of all inclusive hotels with children’s animation. Also fun: a visit to the zoo of Gran Canaria or Aqualand. Or go on a boot trip together to spot dolphins!
5. Tapas, please!
When in Spain… eat Spanish. Don’t forget to taste the delicious tapas during your stay in Gran Canaria. Preferably with a nice view, of course. What about this Tapas Bar Restaurant in Puerto de Mogan?
