If you've decided that you need this year is a sunny Christmas, you'll be glad to know that there are still villas available for rent at Salobre Golf Resorts in south Gran Canaria thanks to Villa Canary Islands.
While Christmas in the sunshine might seem a little strange, you'd be surprised how much of an effort Gran Canaria puts on. It is possible to feel festive and get a tan, especially if you pack your tinsel-trimmed swimming trunks.
Gran Canaria's east coast beaches are a mixed bag with everything from windswept pebble beaches to sheltered coves with golden sand. Salinetas beach is the prettiest and most accessible of the east beaches.
