Lovely beach. Sand dunes look great especially from a distance. We didn't walk across them cos it was too warm. Definitely worth a visit.

Miles and miles of sandy dunes - kept liking for camels or sand buggies but none to be seen. People all packed with brollies, towels and picnics children in tow all trekked across the dunes to finally arrived at the most beautiful clean Sanyo beach...More

Beware of ladies selling bracelets - they are very aggressive! Got rather nasty when told them not interested and had a vice like grip on our wrists.

Dunes are pretty amazing but when You go farther there is a lot of gays and nude people. Plenty of space to get rest.

Day trip to the dunes from cloudy Las Palmas and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was very hot and totally opposite to the north of the Island! It was this day trip that caused us choose Puerto Rico when we returned a few months later.

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.
