Maspalomas plans big transport push for Soul Festival Maspalomas plans big transport push for Soul Festival

The Ayuntamiento de San Bartolomé de Tirajana is liaising with the Maspalomas taxi cooperative and the Global bus company to make sure that there is enough public transport available to get people to and from the Maspalomas Soul Festival on San Agustín beach.

The free festival, which in on the weekend of July 31-August 2 2015, will be held on the sand at San Agustín beach and is expected to draw large crowds of Gran Canaria residents and visitors. 

The Global bus company, which owns all the blue buses that connect Gran Canaria's resorts to each other and to Las Palmas city, has scheduled buses passing through San Agustín every 20 minutes: These are lines 01 and 05 from San Telmo in Las Palmas; line 25 from Playa de Arinaga and line 36 from Telde, along with the direct bus line 30 from Santa Catalina in Las Palmas and line 90 from Telde. . Check times and stops (in Spanish) on their website here.

Global plans to increase the number of line 01 and 05 buses connecting San Agustín to San Telmo in Las Palmas during the festival period. 

The local taxi cooperative will use the San Agustín shopping centre as it base during the event. It plans to continue working after the end of the live music at 00.30 to make sure everyone can get back to their resorts. 

Organisers and the Ayuntamiento hope that by providing enough public transport, they will encourage people not to drive to the festival as there is limited parking in the San Agustín area. 

We would advise people coming from resorts and towns in south Gran Canaria to budget for a taxi home, especially if they stay until after midnight. People coming to San Agustín from Las Palmas and the rest of Gran Canaria will be able to get a bus back home.

    Tip Of The Day: The Friendly Fish At Las Canteras Beach

    Las Canteras beach is a no-take reserve so there are loads of fish, especially where Luis Morote street meets the sand.
