Here's a translation of the recent interview by Gran Canaria Info team member Alex Bramwell. It was originally published on the Nuestro Gran Destino blog created by the Gran Canaria Tourist Board website. Nuestro Gran Destino features people who work in tourism and their opinions about the industry.
A recent viral Facebook post claims that El Veril, the proposed location for Gran Canaria's Siam Park waterpark is a site of special scientific interest that must be protected. Here are the facts behind the claim.
Gran Canaria, and in particular the capital Las Palmas, is fast becoming a top spot to come and learn Spanish. If you are looking for a place to do a Spanish course, or live here and want to get your Spanish up to scratch, the World Language Centre should be top of your shortlist.
A well hidden beach that you have to know to be able to find it. Easiest way to get there is to drive to the harbour of La Aldea. Park somewhere and look for a sign that shows you the way to the beach. if you look well at the map underneath in satellite view you can view the paths.
You've probably read that a passenger ferry crashed into the harbour wall in Las Palmas this week and that the accident caused an oil spill and closed beaches. Relax, the spill was minor and never came anywhere near ANY of Gran Canaria's beaches.
