The first swim
of the year

Not everyone can boast that they\’ve been swimming in the sea during the Christmas holidays, but here, you can. Treat yourself to beaches lapped by turquoise waters and start the year revitalised.

A New Year's dip on 1 January is a Canary Island tradition in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, a popular event held every year that starts with a good swim.
