Earlier this year, in desperate need of some sunshine after the long cold winter we had just experienced in Ireland, I decided to take advantage of my youngest son’s primary school May mid-term break and the two of us jetted off to the cheapest sun destination I could find! Gran Canaria.
I went with little expectations, having already holidayed on another Canary Island – Lanzarote which I found too barren and touristy. But I fell in love with Gran Canaria. For me it has all I want in a holiday – a relaxed atmosphere, stunning beaches with warm seas, great accommodation and restaurants serving good value food, the friendliest locals I have ever encountered and cool bars for the night time.
My son having fun in the surf!
