Enjoying the Dunes, Beach, and Ocean in Gran Canaria, Spain

Jul 7, 2022 10:15:00 AM / by Harrison Nagel

What an adventure! A dip in the ocean, fun on the dunes, and a great time by the beach is hard to beat. Harrison shows us how he and his friends enjoyed their break in Gran Canaria, one of the largest Canary Islands in Spain!

As Harrison closes out his time in Barcelona, he shares one of his spring break memories here:

The boys and I spent our spring break in Gran Canaria! We spent a lot of our time in the sea of sand dunes leading up to the Atlantic Ocean. A great location for spending spring break on the beach!

@capastudyabroad An amazing week on the Island of Gran Canaria! All of our time was spent at the beach, in the dunes, and in the ocean! #CAPAstudyabroad #Spain #grancanaria #studyabroad #abroadstudent ♬ original sound - capastudyabroad
