Luxury Playa del Ingles Holidays

Sand and shopping

Playa del Ingles

On the southern tip of Gran Canaria, Playa del Ingles has a well-earned reputation for exciting nightlife and some of the best entertainment around. The huge beach is famously made from golden sand flown in from the Sahara, backed with beach bars and a watersports centre for anyone itching to try jet-skiing or parasailing.

Playa del Ingles is big on bars, with a streak of lounges and clubs pulsating on the waterfront interspersed with a handful of seafood restaurants for local eats.

One of the best spots on the island for shopping, Playa del Ingles boasts around a dozen swanky shopping centres – so no excuse for not bringing back souvenirs (and duty-free designer clothes...).

Flight Information

When to go

Summers are long, hot and dry in Gran Canaria, keeping at a steady mid-20s and climbing beyond 30°C in July and August. The Canaries are a good destination for winter sun, too – even winter and the shoulder seasons stay warm and sunny, with averages hovering around 18°C.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.

Tipping

Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
