Playa del Ingles, Canary Islands, Spain
Additional Location Information
THE CANARY ISLANDS:
This islands group is one of the seventeen autonomous communities of Spain. The "archipelago" has seven major islands: Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro.
The natural attractions, climate, beaches and nature in general make the Canary Islands a huge tourist destination. Every year, the Canaries with population of just over 2 million People (of which about 300,000 (15%) are foreign residents), attracts over 12 million tourists and about a third of the GDP of the Canaries comes from tourism.
The gentle climate and beautiful nature are the two most powerful attractions the Canaries have for visitors and foreign residents. The weather is mild and fairly stable all year round, which saves a lot of money in air conditioning and heating. Winters are mild and rainy and summers are warm and dry. The average annual temperatures range from 15º C. (59º F.) to 25º C. (77º F.).
This Island has 845,676 inhabitants. The capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (377,203 inhabitants), is the most populous city and shares the status of capital of the Canaries with Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Gran Canaria's surface area is 1,560 km2 (602.32 sq mi).
In center of the island lie the Roque Nublo 1,813 metres (5,948 ft) and Pico de las Nieves ("Peak of Snow") 1,949 metres (6,394 ft). In the south of island are the Maspalomas Dunes and "Playa del Inglés" beach, these are the biggest tourist attractions.
PLAYA DEL INGLÉS:
It is a sea resort in the south coast of the island of Gran Canaria.
Imagine for a moment a world with a Beach University, an academic centre where the beaches of Europe can achieve a degree for being the “best bathing destination”. Perhaps you should know then that such a Beach University exists, and that Playa del Inglés, in southern Gran Canaria, graduated from it many years ago.
Indeed! Playa del Inglés holds an honours degree. Why? Well, perhaps it scored an A+ in fine weather, as it enjoys a gentle sun nearly all through the year. A privileged weather that is almost the norm along the great stretch of sand that starts in Maspalomas and ends in Playa del Inglés, at the foot of those hotels that seem to bend as if they are trying to dive into the ocean. Playa del Inglés is also a certified “one-hundred-smiles achiever”. Such a degree is awarded to holiday resorts visited by thousands of Europeans, to the best sunny spots for hundreds of families over decades. Playa del Inglés can also boast being the perfect beach for your little ones, as it is very wide, with protected areas, and is ideal for fun-seeking children. Plus there is a wide range of shops and amenities in the surrounding area.
Playa del Inglés also scored high marks in the “fun-beach” category. As one of the most visited and crowded beaches in Gran Canaria, it has clearly marked out areas for youngsters, is the meeting place of surfers, running enthusiasts, capoeira freaks, smiling beach workers, calendar girls, and groups of friends diving under the waves.
All this hustle and bustle was essential for Playa del Inglés to fly through the “sports-beach” category with top marks. The curve where the secluded nudist area begins is surfing country, while this less visited section is ideal for those who wish to sunbathe on their own. In the end, this is what makes this place so attractive: there are lots of different options to choose from in your day on the beach.
There are a thousand possible types of beach days for each bather hitting the sand every morning, at the start of the unending land of dunes, far from the area where the hotels seem to want to dip their toes in the sea.
The apartment complex "BARBADOS" is surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants; you will also find very cloth different supermarkets, rental cars, travel agencies for planning your day trips around the island, and more. Local bus and taxis stop just outside the complex. It´s provided with wheelchair access ramps and lifts.
