A few weeks or so ago I hired a car to drive around the island.

On one of my trips I went to Famara which is best known for its excellent surf.

The sands are blown into picturesque shapes.

If the sands are disturbed, small slides are started, creating new and strange shapes.

Overall I was really impressed with the sands of Famara.
