Great place for sunshine, bars, relaxing, and having fun. Lovely beach and massive sand dunes. Prepare to pass through the nudist bit if you want to beach walk to Atlantic coast area.

Hi-we travelled from Puerto Rico to Maspalomas Faro by bus (every 20 minutes) for a cost of €5.50 per person if that helps. Left the car at home so we could have a drink if we wished.
