25th July 2014

1PAlthough I mainly talk of Corralejo, if you are on holiday this coming couple of weeks head down south to Sotavento. Stunning beaches which host the windsurfing world championships. Plenty to do for the family, bars, dancing, and entertainment for the children. The wind surfing is truly amazing, top competitors from around the world can be seen demonstrating their skills. Folk camp down on the beach and the atmosphere is second to none.

For a holiday never to be forgotten, try the experience.
