We went to Playa de Maspalomas a couple of times during our stay in Gran Canaria. There is always something to do and lots of restaurants and shopping possibilities. Taking a cab on Gran Canaria is also very cheap so be sure to visit the place in the evening for a wonderful walk along the beach.

Well maintained area with heritage great walls over the dunes, blue flag beach, upmarket shopping lots of places to eat well worth a visit I have never been disappointed only down side is the Light House is still cordoned off and some of the walkways are dangerous

Long way through the dunes, but very nice to visit. Looks like in the sahara in some parts. Infront you have the long beach with some spots with sun benches and umbrellas. Some small kiosks where you get some drinks and snacks.

A large beach stretching over kilometers. In sectors, it is a nude beach which is then also divided into a male and a hetero section. Quite every kilometer you will find a balero and a toilet

Fantastic walk between Playa Del Ingles and Maspalomas along the sea edge and back again through the dunes. Good way to catch a sun tan.

Huge sandy beach that goes on for miles. Also massive dunes to explore. Shops and restaurants by the beach, buses stop close by and there is a taxi rank. Waves quite lively but life guard on duty when we were there. Sun beds and umbrellas for hire, but we just took a towel to sit on. Very busy but so... More
