Lovely clean beach but it was windy when we went there during the end of march and the water was cold. However, it didn't stop us going into the sea :). I'd go back there again but just at a different time of the year.

Dear BigBrian 11" Together with my none-swinger Husband, I'll be in Gran Canaria for just one day from a cruise ship moored in Las Palmas. It would be wonderful for me if I could attend a swing area just for the time the ship is anchored, from after breakfast to before dinner. My husband is a Doctor & not a swinger but tolerates my swinging. Where would you advise I go to in order to meet men looking for women of easy virtue, such as me? I've looked at a couple of Swingers resorts in Maspalomas but not sure how much action may be available, during the daytime in those. Maybe most PLAY is in the evening & I will have left to return to the ship by then. Would you advise just getting a Taxi to the Nudist Beeech at Maspalomas and sunbath naked to attract attention, or is that a true Naturist beach where swinging is frowned upon? In short where I am most likely to be approached by urbane men? In a Swing Club/Resort, or just in the Sand Dunes; please advise. My complete details are available at the free Web site: Fabswingers UK Belle-de-Nuit
