So, where is the best place to see it? Basically anywhere on the main beach is good, although the centre of the beach, next to Chiringuito Hermanos Moreno, is the prime viewing spot – fat chance of getting that, right? There’s also the esplanade next to Camping Laguna Playa or near the palmtrees near Marisquería Mani.

Finally, if your eyes have begun bleeding from trying to read the ridiculously small letters on the Sunday timetable, then you can visit the air show’s official website for more info.
