Get set for sun, sea, and sand by the bucket load in Puerto Rico. Hugging the southern coast of Gran Canaria, this palm-tree paradise brings the vitamin D all year round, being one of the sunniest spots on the island. What was once a sleepy fishing village, its age-old charm and laid-back island vibe draw in holidaymakers every year. If you want to flop out on the beach, there are two golden stretches of sand to lay your towel out on. The marina-protected Puerto Rico Beach is brimming with colourful marine life, while white-knuckle watersports are the name of the game at Amadores Beach. Kids cling to bumping banana boats, adults soar the skies windsurfing, and surfers glide over the waves. All backed by a natural landscape of postcard fame, towered by dramatic mountains and volcanic valleys that make up Pilancones Natural Park. With three shopping centres and a shop-filled beachside promenade to browse, Splash the cash on souvenirs, local wines, or handmade crafts. When the sun sets, savour the mouth-watering Canarian cuisine at a seafront restaurant, then enjoy a locally made tipple at a traditional wine bar. There’s no doubt about it: holidays to Puerto Rico make for the perfect sun-and-fun-filled family break.
