First night

Well we arrived unpacked I had a quick shower and we were away out on the town waheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee



In the first bar at the Yumbo Centre and this didnt hit the sides lol



The place seemed really quiet, I was shocked. 

We knew what part of the resort we had landed in lol yes its a bloke



Anyway it was just a few drinks and away home.

Day2

The girls wanted to relax so I was away to take a look around, bye ladies.







This was the very end of the resort



The coastal are was smaller than I thought it was going to be, I walked from maspalomas to the very end of Playa Del Ingles in a couple of hours, by the way that was the end of my long distance walks for the first week as my knee had swollen right up I was well peed off







Maspalomas area, the dunes were amazing







More to come soon

S/C for a week & never had a bad meal, can't complain about that. 2 particularly worth a mention in the Yumbo Centre, Superman Restaurant (naff name but smashing food) enjoyed it so much we went twice, inexpensive too. Had to book a table at Wapa Tapa, bit more expensive but well worth it, all the tapas we tried were fantastic.

Think we did much the same walk as Daryn, from PDI beach to Maspalomas Lighthouse, same 'sights' along the way Shocked

Didn't find the place too expensive, could get a decent pint (Tropical usually) for €2.50. Weather was really good too, 25° to 30° every day.

Had a car for the week so saw a wee bit of the island, nothing really stood out though, Puerto Mogan very picturesque but quiet, Christopher Columbus museum in Las Palmas pretty good for €4 each but parking a nightmare so reluctant to say it was worth the trip. Went a hike (thought it was gonna be a walk so we only had trainers on, really should have had walking boots on) to Barranco de Guayadeque. Pretty impressive Caldera & views on the way up/down but some parts of the terrain weren't the best (shale mainly) so reluctant to recommend that too. Drove to Caldera de Bandama, pretty impressive if stuff like that float's yer boat clap

A few photos: (no idea why the first 2 are upside down No  No maybe somebody can rotate them, if not you'll have to turn your monitor upside down  ner-ner  ) EDIT, fixed post below

Caldera de Bandama


Fuerteventura still my favourite in the Canaries clap

Glad to hear you had a good time HH, reps from me for the pics too, thanks for posting.
Have to say that it seems we've all done similar things on our trips to Gran Canaria, however, I love the interior views of the Island as in your pics, I've concluded that GC is like a 1000 years on from Tenerife, as there hasn't been an eruption there for that long, and the fauna has recovered better.
Did you get to see Mount Teide as you approached Puerto Mogan? I nearly drove off the side of the cliff when it appeared in front of me! such is the spectacle. Wish I had a picture of it. Astonishing to see such a high mountain at that range of view.

Cheers for the reps chaps, it's appreciated.
@Mark, I didn't mate & neither of my travelling companions did either No I was too busy marvelling at the civil engineering of the tunnels thru the hills Shocked

D'ya know, this intrigues me. I've searched over the years for a pic that is similar to the view I had as I came round that corner on the road to Pt Mogan, (of Mt Teide in front) figuring that the view was so spectacular it's just impossible for no-one else to have taken a picture of it.
But I've not found a single one. Shocked
Literally the whole sky in front was filled with the image of it, seemingly right up to the edge of space.
I now wonder if I caught one of those optical illusion moments, I've read before that if the atmosphere is set up a certain way then it can enlarge far away objects to appear nearer than they are, a bit like a mirage I suppose. scratch


I might have to go back.... lol! lol! lol!
