Lovely beach to stroll along

As there are not so many promenades in Maspalomas the best place to walk is on the gorgeous beach from El Faro to Playa D'Ingles. So lovely to stroll along in the cool water and... read more

During warm or hot weather the Dunes have the same asks as the Sahara. BUT, just before sunset. They gotta be on your must do list while on Gran. Canaria.

As there are not so many promenades in Maspalomas the best place to walk is on the gorgeous beach from El Faro to Playa D'Ingles. So lovely to stroll along in the cool water and there is a constant stream of people going both ways. About half way there is a nudist beach so be prepared to see a lot... More

La Charca is a brackish lagoon that provides a few bird snapping opportunities and the beach and dunes are rightly famous

The beach going from playa del Inglès to Faro is kilometers long and hundereds of persons walk next to you. If you like to be alone along the sea you may be disappointed. The voew on the dunes is very nice. Be aware that at some places groups of naturists are laying in the sun or crossing the crowd to... More

Fabulous beach and a long safe walk. However broad minds needed occasionally with lots of mainly male nudity.

Interesting place to visit and to take long walks along the beach. Excellent place to make empirical studies about how age and gravity impacts the human body. You can walk fully clothed, topless, bottomless or nude. Noone will lift an eyebrow.

Over the years this area has continually improved. There is a protected wildlife area adjacent to the beach where you can see all sorts of birdlife. Along the beachfront toward Playa Del Ingles are a series of bars - very small but offers a very welcome cold beer on a hot day! And from the lighthouse toward Meleronas a large... More

I was there in July, and it was an amazing weather, and very warm. You have lots of space to put your towel. The sea is nice to swim, but with some waves. Next to the beach, you have lots of restaurants and stores where you can buy all kind of stuff. You should visit the dunes (like the desert),... More
