The east and south-east coast of Gran Canaria is one of Europe's best and most consistent windsurfing spots. It's in the island's wind acceleration zone so it gets wind and waves almost all year round. Waves are normally at about one metre but can reach three metres. Bring your small sails, especially during the summer.
