Description:Playa del Ingles lies on the south east coast of Gran Canaria. The resort is the biggest and liveliest on the island, with a huge choice of bars, restaurants, pubs and nightclubs and busy beaches stretched over 10 miles.  This area has the best climate on the island and also has quite a strong breeze so its popular with the wind surfers.

On the beachfront lies a long, palm-fringed promenade.  It has quite a strong nightclub scene and many of the clubs go on in to daybreak.  You can guess that it is popular with the younger generations.  The resort can get very crowded during the Summer so demand for rental properties will always exist.

Considering the climate is warm all year round a good strategy would be to rent the property during school peak, peak and part off-peak and then enjoy the rest!  The island is not difficult to get to and bargain flights can be had off the internet if you book well in advance and fly in the off-peak times.
