Not much of a pier in truth, just an old concrete jetty by the lighthouse at Maspalomas. There are archeological ruins nearby of an aboriginal settlement dating back some 1000 years, but the area is dominated by the Maspalomas Sand Dunes, and numerous holiday hotels.
Well, our winter sun holiday is upon us – an early start and a drive through some pretty ferocious winds (Storm Erik apparently) saw us in the lounge at Manchester airport for long enough for a quick drink before boarding. Gran Canaria here we come!
The Cherry Tree Hotel near Whitchurch must have seen some lively times over the years, both in it’s previous incarnation as the Witch Ball Inn, and latterly as a night club. It’s been abandoned for many years now and completely derelict. Project anyone?
