I really enjoys the sun. Well, I have to, I live in Spain. But I prefer lonely and distant beaches with few few people. And I think that Gran Canaria is not one of these places. I prefer Almería, where so many western films were filmed during 60's and 70's. Specially Cabo de Gata, a Natural Park. But Gran Canaria is warm along the whole year.

Almost every spaguetti western film. Sergio Leone used to come to Almería to make his movies.

There are a couple of locations, fake western villages where the films were maked, that today have shows about indians, cowboys, bank's robbers, the pony express... One of them is Mini Hollywood: http://www.hvsl.es/lei/hojas/leio0002.htm

One of the most interestings places is Texas Hollywood, where Clint Eastwood weared his poncho so beautifully. Check out their page: http://www.texashollywood.com/ Here you can see locations of: A fistful of dollars, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, The magneficient seven... Look at their filmography: http://www.texashollywood.com/filmografia.htm

Other one is Western-Leone: http://www.westernleone.com/

Today, is still a location very interesting for filmakers. One scene of The Last Crusade of Indiana, the moment when Connery use the birds of a beach as a way to destroy a german plane, this is the beach of Monsul, in Alemría, Cabo de Gata exactly. A incredibly beautiful place:

This little hill that falls into the sea is a stoned dune (sand that have becomed stone).

Here a translated to english version of the web of Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata... lonely beaches and dry desserts (I always use the wrong word between desert/dessert/or whatever) a marvellous place: http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=es&u=http://www.parquenatural.com Never forget your after sun... Laughing

Beaches and "calas" (little beaches, allways look for "calas" in Almería):
http://www.mma.es/portal/secciones/acm/aguas_marinas_litoral/guia_playas/almeria/nijar.htm
My favorite ones: Cala amarilla, Cala del barranco negro, Cala higuera, Playa de los genoveses, Playa de Monsul y Playa de los Muertos. Johnny, you had read perfectly, it's name is Playa de los Muertos, Beach of the Dead. It seems that saylor corpses used to end resting there after a sunk...
Cala de San Pedro is very beauty, but is infested by hippies. Laughing What annoys me much is that there is a medieval tower that had served for along 300 years to defend the enter to the beach that now is occupied by a handful of hippies that have painted the walls and ruined a piece of History. Motherf****s! Evil or Very Mad

Sergio Leone was a master craftsman. His last film was to be Stalingrad and the American version that came out with lots of English actors doing very bad cockney type Russian accents was a complete copy of what Leone wanted to do with the opening except when the last explosion is heard over the river it says Staligard by Sergio Leone in the blast. Sorely missed.
