13.10.2016: Spain got seriously wet yesterday and the tail end of that weather is arriving in the Canary Islands today. It won't affect the south of the island, but the north can expect the odd shower (although the sun is blazing this morning).
19.09.2016: If you're in Gran Canaria you may have noticed the grey to the south and east of the island yesterday. That was a wet front that never quite made it to land (it just touched Fuerteventura and Lanzarote).
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.
