Clean and hard work to walk on but great views. Busy near the entrance but as you walk further in your be alone apart from the odd naturist!

Like many others regularly walked along the beach each day.Couple of things worth a mention.There is a nudist beach near the sea edge, mostly men sunbathing,and regrettably over the years I have noticed that in the afternoon the the bushes/foliage are being used as places for activities you may not wish to hear (or see) Go for a walk in...

These dunes are amazing a feel of the desert and yet the Atlantic is breaking onto the beach. Never been anywhere like them. Be prepared for naked sunbathers. Lovely cafés and bars (a bit expensive!) to sit and enjoy the views and people watch whilst sipping a cool drink. The shops are just a few minutes away and I'm told... More

You can walk all the way from Maspalomas to Playa del Ingles in about 3 hours. It's a 6 mile walk but you can stop off on the way and enough a swim in the sea. The water is often quite rough so great for those who want to have fun the waves. This is also a popular nudist beach... More

Gigantic sandy beach scatted with sand dunes and bits of foilage. There is a nudist area slap bang in the middle of it and some of the sights were shocking........ Kids will love it, adults will love it. Can get a bit windy but hey ho

At the sea shore its a lovely beach but if you venture into the dunes you run the risk of encountering some very adult goings on. In fact, you don't have to get to close before you may be propositioned by bold young and not so young men.

A superb wide sandy beach backed by these world famous sand dunes. Further along you will find the nudist areas and a little further on the gay section of the beach The beach slopes gently into the sea and is well patrolled by Life guards. Swimming was often forbidden whilst we were there in early January so do be careful... More

About 3 miles of great sand to dip your toes in, a drink to finish of at each end, beware of the nudist areas that seemed to have spread since our last visit, but if its it Beach you want, you've got lots to choose from.
