The dreary winter storms we’ve experienced here in England the past few weeks will inevitably result in many people dreaming of some warm winter sun. The Canary Islands boasts all year round sunshine because of it’s position only 60 miles from the coast of Africa and are on the same line of latitude as Florida. Even during the European winter months the weather is superb which makes these Canary Islands popular with us Brits to enjoy some winter sunshine.
Outdoor activities are plentiful here and you can do as much or as little as you’d like. There’s hiking, water sports, swimming, bike hire, golf, horse riding or the most popular of all activities – relaxing on the numerous beaches across the islands.
One of the most popular locations for some winter sun is Las Canteras Beach in Las Palmas during the winter months when the temperatures remain a steady 22C (71F). Las Canteras Beach is also a great place to view world class sand sculptures and are a tourist attraction in themselves well worth checking out whilst you’re there.
