You have the grandeur and size of coastal resorts such as Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas, where the beaches are filled with hard-core sun tanners, and the night life is a loud, bright and colourful party. Then, on the other side of the scale, you have to more reserved and quiet resorts like the towns of Puerto Mogan, Puerto Rico and Bahia Feliz.
