Dia de Canarias. 30th May

Dia CanariasA question many visitors ask around this time is what the Day actually marks. Some will take to books and internet to see what historic occasion, such as a battle or major discovery, was chosen as the date symbolising the Canaries. They will be disappointed, however, as the real reason is much simpler, not to say much more recent.




The Kite Festival Comes to Town

Once again Corralejo dunes play host to the international Kite Festival, where enthusiasts from all over Europe come to show off their kites. This annual event draws the curious school child and the avid adult to see the vast assortment of kites. Some high in the air and some almost on the ground so that even the youngest can get close up and personal with them.
