Indian Food In Las Palmas
Curry in Las Palmas
Indian food in Las Palmas has always been thin on the ground despite the city's large Sindi population. Now we are spoilt for choice with five Indian restaurants in the Puerto district alone. If you fancy an Indian in Las Palmas, here are your options:

Oso Polar
Calle Sagasta 17
The Oso Polar is the oldest Indian restaurant in the port but serves a decidedly strange curry. The food tastes like it was cooked by someone who was told what Indian food is like but has never actually eaten it. The only time we ate there (which was a few years ago) we came out feeling like someone had tried to poison us with cinnamon. One a more positive note, one of our friends goes there every time he comes to Las Palmas for their nan kima. Cheap and cheerful, although the chef needs to lay off the artificial colourings.
Club Hindustánico
Leon y Castillo 415-417
This is actually the Hindu community's private club although the restaurant is open to everybody. It's up on the second floor of a residential building so takes a bit of finding. The Club Hindú does a good curry and excellent starters.The service has always been friendly but there has been a recent change of guard and we have heard mutterings that it isn't as good as it used to be. We can't confirm them as we haven't been for a while.

The Curry House
Calle Portugal 13
Formerly the Taj Majal and conveniently located one block back from the beach, The Curry House does good enough curry without being remarkable.

Nawabi
Jesus Ferrer Jimeno 7


Nawabi is where the old guard from the Club Hindustanico have moved to. It's big and well decorated and the service is friendly. The food is excellent, if slightly salty. Until recently this was our favourite Indian restaurant in Las Palmas ...
Aanand
Franchy Roca 13/ Esquina Tomas Miller
So new it even has a
Facebook page, Aanand is excellent. The chicken jalafrezi is superb and the lamb s tender as it gets. We prefer the starters at the Club Hindustánico but for everything else this is by far our favourite Indian restaurant in Las Palmas. The only problem is that we went last Thursday and were the only people there.

For the sake of our curry futures please go and try Aanand.  Let us know what you think!
Do you know of any other Indian restaurants in Las Palmas? Let us know and we will go and try them and add them to the list.

Basking sharks spend the winter by the Canary Islands

British scientists have tracked the giant but gentle basking shark all the way from the Hebrides to the Canary Islands. Basking sharks are slow moving but mysterious fish and little is know about their behaviour. Now we know that they come south for the winter and that the Canaries are their favourite destination.

The research, by Scottish Natural Heritage and the University of Exeter, is the first evidence that basking sharks spend their winters in the sun. The 2000 mile journey from Scotland to the Canary Islands takes the fish 138 days: Maybe someone should tell them about Ryanair. Or maybe not: We wonder how much excess baggage a 36 foot, seven tonne basking shark would have to pay.

If you are coming to the Canary Islands on holiday, don't worry: Basking sharks are huge but only feed on tiny plankton and are completely harmless. They are rarely seen close to shore in the Canary Islands. However, it is great to know that while everybody is splashing around by the beach, one of the largest animals in the world is enjoying the same warm water just over the horizon.

In 2013 we will create the ultimate Gran Canaria beach guide
Coming Soon: The guide to all of Gran Canaria's beaches

The guidebooks all say that Gran Canaria has 82 beaches and then only tell you about five of them. This means that many visitors to the island miss out on its prettiest and coolest beaches. We’ve decided to put that right in 2013.

This year we are going to visit every single beach in Gran Canaria. We will photograph them, video then, swim at them, sleep on them, eat at them, and then produce the best guide to our beaches anywhere on the internet.

Then we are going to do the same with the island’s resorts, golf courses, restaurants, attractions, etc. It’s going to be a busy and fun year! Gran Canaria Info and The Sunshine Guide are already the best guides to Gran Canaria on the internet. By the end of 2013 they will be even better.

Stay posted Gran Canaria fans, 2013 is going to be a fun year :-D

We already covered many of Gran Canaria's beaches on Gran Canaria Info and the Sunshine Guide:


Anfi Beach: Gran Canaria's Tropical Paradise
Maspalomas: Europe's Nudist Capital
Gran Canaria's Laid Back El Confital Beach

Gran Canaria at 11.00 AM on December 6th 2012


Gran Canaria gets an average of eight hours of sunshine per day in December. You can sit on the beach or by the pool and feel hot without any worries.

Day temperatures range between 22 and 28 degrees Celsius, dropping to about 18 at night. Bring a fleece or a jumper if you plan to eat out in the evenings. Somehow 18 degrees C feels chilly in Gran Canaria, especially if your skin is warm from the sun.

Spend a day in Gran Canaria's mountains or Cumbres and temperatures can vary between 0 and 30 degrees Celsius. If you plan to explore Gran Canaria in December then bring warm clothes: It can even snow at the very top of the island in December.

It does rain in Gran Canaria during the winter and you can expect a couple of days of cloudy or wet weather during a two week visit in December. Rain normally rolls in for a couple of days and then blows over. See this Sunshine post for
info about what to do in Gran Canaria when it rains.

Gran Canaria is an excellent place to come for winter sunshine. Along with the other Canary Islands, it is the only place in Europe where you are almost guaranteed
