La Graciosa / Playa las Conchas , Spain

Big waves. Due to the strong current for experts only! Half a kilometer stretch of spectacular golden sand. Unspoilt beach with lots of space. Due to it's position and the predominant wind direction it is almost always side and sideonshore. The Canary Islands located close to the North African coast (approx. 100 kms) and the Sahara desert, are on the fringe of the trade winds and in the middle of a major ocean current - the Canary current. The predominant winds are the NE trade winds that blow throughout the year. In the summer they become more consistent and stronger and the sea breezes create a pleasant climate both on the water and on shore. The trade winds "Los Alisios" can kick in as early as March and as late as May and contrary to popular belief they are not strong winds only about 3 Bft on the open sea. The best time to visit the islands is between May and August. The position of the islands creates acceleration zones where the wind is funneled between the "Los Riscos" mountain range of Lanzarote and the island of La Graciosa. Theses winds can sometimes increase to as much as 8-9 Bft and are normally sideshore or sideonshore. The Canary Islands occasionally get hit by the hot dry "Sirocco" winds that blow straight off the Sahara desert. They normally last between from 2-10 days and provide variable conditions (light-strong).
