Hello Sparkie002 ,Where are you staying ? Then best directions ,buses to take etc could be given
I will be staying in Playa del Ingles and will arrive by some local bus to the capital.
Thanks forwrda for your kind reply:-)
The local bus is the 30. So when you arrive in Las Palmas the first landmark is an open air bus station for local yellow buses just near the theatre. Stay on the bus. Next landmark is the underground bus station where the bus will pull in to a bay and almost everyone will get off. Stay on the bus. It leaves the station and goes along the side of the sea and after about five minutes there is a beach with the harbour in the background. Just by the beach is the Real Club Nautico. Get off the bus. Cross the road by the footbridge and then walk in the direction the bus was going. At the first big road turn left, you will see a Cortefiel as a landmark on your left and the military entry to the port on your right. Turn left and walk up the main road. At the next lights El Corte Ingles is on both sides of the street.
If you miss the Real Club it isn't too far to walk back but it really is worth keeping an eye out for the beach and/or asking the driver for the Real Club. (pronounce ree al)
You will find this map below helpful to find your way around the city. Use the expand facility in %'s at the head of the page to expand and navigate your way around it. I've centred it on the "El Corte ingles" area where there are a lot of shops situated:-
