Playa del Ingles

Situated to the South of Gran Canaria Island, Playa de Ingles is a purpose built holiday resort. It is not only a great family friendly beach resort by day but once night falls it continues its buzz well into the early hours, ideal for young couples and groups alike and there's a nightclub to suit every one's tastes. There are classic dance music venues at the Kasbah Centre pumping out loud dance tracks into the early hours and more specialist clubs at the Yumbo Centre catering for Irish and English groups as well as gay holiday makers.

The name, Playa del Ingles can be translated literally as the "Englishman's beach" and it has been catering for its target tourists since the 1960's. It is only about a 35 minute transfer from the Gran Canaria Airport which can be carried out either in a taxi or, the cheaper option, on the local bus which departs every 15 minutes

Playa del Ingles features a spacious sandy beach which is 8km long and 3km wide and the weather is invariably great as its Southern position allows. It is therefore fantastic for the simple family pleasures of sunbathing, sandcastle building, paddling and swimming. Since the beach is so vast it is often separated into specific bathing areas featuring various nude, semi clad bathing and the more family friendly areas. For those that want more than just bathing there are plenty of extra beach activities on offer for a fixed price. Activities such as jet skiing, wind surfing, scuba diving and banana boat rides are popular for those who want a little more excitement from their beach holiday. There are yet more sporting activities for every age and ability offered further in land, from horse riding to camel riding, mini golf to skydiving and from tennis coaching to taking the kids for a dip and slide in one of the three massive water parks on the Island of Gran Canaria.

There are a plethora of family friendly restaurants, cafes, bars catering for every taste imaginable, from the traditionally English fish and chips to Italian, Chinese and the more obviously local cuisine. Every member of the family can be catered for, there's even a McDonalds fast food restaurant for those who don't want to miss out on the comforts of home while reaping the benefits of sun, sea and sand.

When the beach and all the sporting activities gets too much there is always the pedestrian promenade of Paseo Costa Canaria in which to relax. It consists of a plaza lined with tropical plants and flowers, a cool space to sit at a pavement cafe and watch the world go by. How about a spot of retail therapy? At the Playa de Ingles resort one can really indulge . There are not only Spanish boutiques to browse but also the more unusual Indian Moroccan influenced markets where it is considered downright rude not to haggle with the vendor! Wherever you go in the resort you can grab yourselves a real bargain, there are cheap electrical goods and imitation designer wear to be snapped up at the Kasbah and Metro centres.
