San Augustin holidays take you to a small purpose built resort on the southern coast of Gran Canaria. Located close to Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles, it has three sheltered beaches of dark sand and shale. Lying within a cove, the water is shallow and calm and ideal for paddling. Those seeking soft sand can head for the massive dunes of Maspalomas by walking along the promenade that runs behind the beach. The south of the island is fairly windy so the area attracts windsurfers and sailors. The clarity of the water and the abundance of marine life, offer ideal conditions for snorkelling and diving. If you enjoy fishing, take a day trip into the ocean. Forget the trout and salmon back at home. Here you can catch the likes of blue marlin which weigh hundreds of pounds. Whale and dolphin spotting is another popular excursion. Away from the coast, there is plenty to see and do. Several of the island’s attractions are situated in the area and you are only forty minutes from the capital, Las Palmas. Family attractions include the Aqualand water park; the theme park Holiday World; a go-karting track; a botanical garden and aviary, Palmitos Park. Gran Canaria, with its walking trails into a stunning landscape, attracts many hikers. If you wish to explore the interior of the island, but not on foot, hire a 4x4 vehicle.
