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.
Making sandcastles on the Playa del Inglés
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.
