Get TESOL qualified on the beautiful island of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands with ITTT. Study in beach paradise on this island chain just 62 miles off the coast of Morocco where the weather is warm all year round and the scenery so varied it is known as “the Little Continent”. One minute you will feel like you are crossing the Sahara Desert as you explore the sand dunes on camel or dune buggy. The next moment could see you trekking through rainforest before moving onto breathtaking mountain views reminiscent of the Grand Canyon or Rocky Mountains.
Head to the beaches for sunbathing and other exciting activities such as surfing and windsurfing. The beach at Pozo Izquierdo is the place to be in Gran Canaria when it comes to windsurfing and is the location of the windsurfing world cup each year. Diving is another popular activity here and there are hundreds of dive sites to explore with over 700 species of marine life unique to the Canary Islands. If you would prefer more relaxing ways to spend your free time, you might prefer a round of golf at one of the championship golf courses on the island. You could also chill out in nature with a picnic beside one of the many lakes nestled in the mountain ranges.
Gran Canaria is an excellent place for amateur astronomers to visit as its atmospheric conditions are perfect for astronomical observations and NASA used a tracking station here during its manned space mission program in the 1960s. The receiving station here was the first to receive Neil Armstrong’s historic message “That´s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” as he stepped out onto the Moon.
