It's considered as a surf magnet and during summer beaches like Los Enanos, El Roque and Vagabundos can be the only surfable places in the island. The east coast offers good conditions throughout the entire year since the surf spots on this side of Gran Canaria can handle the northeast trade winds pretty well. The best time of the year to surf in Gran Canaria is from autumn to winter when solid swells create powerful and perfect waves in any coast of the island.
