The Canaries, which one?

Postby Dantastic » Wed Mar 13, 2013 2:18 pm

Hi All,

Looking to get away somewhere warm for a week at the end of May. Im thinking of the Canaries as the mrs will be fairly happy there and I can sneak off for a couple of days for a surf.

So Ideally I would like a beach break where its nice and steady and some where to hire a board from as I am still only a short way down the path to becoming a proper surfer. Last year I ended up at Cotillo as we were staying in Corralejo, this was superb and somehting similar on one of the other islands would be mint.

So which next, Gran Canaria, Lazarote or Tenerife. We could do with going some where that is within a relatively short bus trip to the town were at.

Any experiences welcome!

Lanzarote would be the one to go for, plenty of serious reefs plus mellow beach break at Famara and several surf shops there to hire from.
