Imagine this. You’re lying on a sun-soaked deck. Ocean breezes ruffle your hair. And when you look up, you see two soaring masts set against a brilliant blue sky. If that sounds good, then you’ll be in your element on this leisurely cruise along Gran Canaria’s south-western shores. You’ll sail in the ‘Aphrodite’, a traditional Turkish gulet that’s every inch the cruising beauty. All pine decks, wooden masts and a gleaming captain’s wheel, it’s like something from a period maritime drama. And from the moment you board, you’ll be royally treated, starting with a welcome drink. From there, it’s just a matter of chilling on your sunlounger, honing your tan and watching the stunning cliffs and beaches roll by. And there’s even a complimentary buffet and all inclusive bar to top everything off. Try as we might, we can’t think of a more relaxing way to spend a day in Gran Canaria.
