What a shame this part of Gran Canaria has been ruined.. I highly recommend avoiding coming here if you have children unless you don't mind then seeing naked men standing on their balconies! Bearing in mind this was the main road leading to the beach.. This is not a resort to bring children just a full on red light district!

So this part of Gran Canaria is very good, it's close the everything like aqualand, palmitos park and the amusements. The beach is amazing very busy during summer time so you have to be there very early to get a sun lounger, also loads of activity's to do at the beach like water sports etc. Would highly recommend playa del...

This is a nice beach. It is popular with tourists. It's next to the maspalomas dunes. Its worth a visit.

Why do the majority of nudists have to parade their wares for everyone to see whether they like it or not. Whilst I'd love to say there isn't anything wrong with the human body after seeing some of the overweight, wrinkled, extremely unpleasant specimens strutting there stuff here I afraid I can't . A lovely view ruined by views that... More

If you stay at Playa Del Ingles, the beach is a must. If you are having problems walking in stairs, there are elevators to assist. The weather is almost always nice and the people are kind of laid back. The price for renting a seat is 4 dollars per person.

Valle Gran Rey and the Playa del Ingles was one of the greatest places we visited on La Gomera. The surf is fantastic during the day and the cafés and restaurants on the short sea front walk inviting. The place is full of hippie descendants who run little shops and perform a drums and fire-art session in the dusk. The... More

There are warning notices BUT they do not go far enough to state the danges - pity as once everyonf goes it is beautiful - but I cannot state strongly... More

Playa del ingles is very outdated. The centre is strange, only big shopping centres with shops and restaurants. They are ugly and old. However there are some nice places to eat and the people are very friendly. The beach is nice, there are some restaurants where you can eat a nice meal. Aqua sports centre provides lots of great thing... More
