Holidays to Maspalomas
Turquoise ocean, miles of sand dunes, five-star hotels, and upmarket restaurants are the order of the day on a holiday to Maspalomas. This swanky resort town in the south of Gran Canaria is famous for the moonscape of massive dunes that form a nature reserve between the two main beaches, Playa de Maspalomas and Playa del Inglés. Surf the sand, spot meerkats, or even book a camel ride to enjoy this natural wonder.
Playa del Inglés is the bigger, busier of the two beaches, with a water sports centre and plenty of restaurants nearby. The equally spacious, windswept Maspalomas is perfect for swimming and relaxing.
A still active old lighthouse stands guard at the western end of Maspalomas Beach where it meets Meloneras Promenade, a postcard-pretty walkway that’s perfect for an evening stroll as the sun sets over the Atlantic.
Just off Playa del Inglés is the bustling heart of town. The Yumbo Centre is jampacked with shops and open-air restaurants, as well as gay bars and clubs that make Maspalomas a mecca for LGBT tourists. In the north, residential San Fernando boasts two markets, while family-friendly Sonnenland is home to Holidayworld, Gran Canaria’s biggest amusement park, and the peaceful Parque del Sur. Head to the beach resort of San Agustin for sloping sands and calm water that’s ideal for snorkelling and diving.
Looking for a change of scene? A huge golf course behind the dunes is the largest on the island, while its biggest waterpark, Aqualand, offers splash-filled fun for the young and the young at heart. A holiday to Maspalomas is a guaranteed hit with all the family.
