The tides and waves are the only things to mark the hours and minutes on Las Salinetas Beach, in Gran Canaria.
The tamboril fish flits around the sandy depths near to Salinetas beach (Telde, Gran Canaria), like it’s in its own larder. If it feels it is under threat, it expands like a balloon to make it look larger than it actually is, at least physically. On the shore, on the other hand, summer holiday makers have nothing to fear, as their only worry is to decide which restaurant to go to for lunch, or whether they would prefer going for a splash in the crystal clear waters, go for a snooze, or flick through a couple of pages of their book. That’s about as tough it gets during the day in Salinetas.
