Playa Machado, just north of the main Playa El Mdano on the south-east coast, is also a good bet for water sports. With a laid-back atmosphere and plenty of cafes and bars, this golden beach is also popular among holidaying windsurfers and kiteboarders as well as the professionals, who compete here in championship events throughout the summer.
The beaches on Gran Canaria with its breezy weather conditions and consistently warm climate are perfect for those who've caught the windsurfing bug. The area is almost unrivalled for an exhilarating water sports holiday.
Drive half an hour north from Maspalomas towards the airport to mingle with the pros at Pozo Izquierdo. Here there are several schools where you'll learn the windsurfing basics as well as numerous hire shops, renting out windsurfing kit to the experienced as well as surf boards if you fancy just getting out in the waves.
In Fuerteventura, land-loving sun worshippers will find plenty to enjoy. A beach holiday here need not entail splashing about in the sea. Instead get active with an early morning jog on the flat, compact sands of the Costa Calma beach in the south of the island. Alternatively you could take in the scenery with a hike on the beaches of the Isle of Lobos, just a half hour boat trip from the bustling tourist harbour of Correlejo on the northern coast. The small island plays host to thousands of varieties of winged creatures, from migrating birds to rare seabirds and also boasts crystal clear waters and picturesque beaches.
