Gran Canaria, Spain
Spain? Africa? Or a desert utopia somewhere in between? The Salobre Golf Resort and Spa sits at the southern tip of the largest of the Canary Islands, the little Spanish archipelago that dots the sea off the west coast of Africa. After playing eighteen holes at one of the Salobre’s two golf courses, you can ease back with a sangria here at the ‘sunset solarium.’ Surrounded by a vast expanse of arid dunes and palm trees, you feel your proximity to Africa. But with a charming Spanish waiter bringing you yet another sangria, you feel close to Spain. It’s easy to relax into this cultural mash-up—just sip sangria at sunset and enjoy the space between.
