Maspalomas

Maspalomas is the oldest tourist town on the south coast of Gran Canaria, a 20 minute drive or bus ride east from Puerto Rico.

This resort is famous for its beautiful, natural 6 kilometre coastline of sand dunes, wide sandy beaches and beautiful shallow waters. There isn’t much else to do in Maspalomas but enjoy the fabulous coastline, but along the Costa Maspalomas you can visit the resorts of Aguila, Las Burras, San Agustin and Playa del Ingles.

The actual resort of Maspalomas is very upmarket and is home to some luxury residences, hotels and the largest golf course on the island.

Beaches
The stretch of beach which separates the Maspalomas resort with Playa del Ingles consists of 400 hectares of dramatic sand dunes, which have been designated a natural park. The dunes are a natural habitat for many different species of rare plants, which manage to survive the dry arid landscape. You can cross the dunes by foot or camel.

The dunes are a favourite location for nudists and the gay community, so bear this in mind whilst
strolling along or atop a camel!

The other areas of Maspalomas beach are excellent for families with children, with lots of facilities available, including water sports, showers, beach bars, restaurants and shops.

Places to visit
Towards the west of the nature park is an area called El Oasis, with its upmarket hotels and La Charca, which is the remains of a seawater lagoon. If you enjoy bird watching or natural surroundings in general then you will love this spot, which is fringed with palm trees.

The Aqualand Maspalomas, is the island’s largest water park and a great day out for the family, if you get bored of the beach and sand dunes, there is also an attraction park called Holiday World and Palomitos Park, an ornithological park.

The wild west comes to Gran Canaria at Sioux City Theme Park and if you want to enjoy a little Canarian culture and history then a visit to Mundo Aborigen is a must.

Climate
Gran Canarias’s climate like the rest of the Canary Islands is mild, enjoying pleasant temperatures all year round. Average temperatures during the summer months average 26-28C; during the winter months the temperature rarely drops below 22 degrees, making it a perfect all year round
destination.

Maspalomas Gran Canaria review

«Too much tourist» and too many annoying «salespersons» in particular along the beach promenade. Else, a very nice and tidy place.

Never really spent much time in the city (merely grocery shopping). However the surroundings up in the mountains is really beautiful.

Maspalomas Gran Canaria review

A nice place with good opportunities for sun and beach, relaxing, outdoor activities like walking, running and cycling. There are also a lot of good restaurants and shopping. Maspalomas is a little bit calmer than Playa del Ingles for example.

Maspalomas Gran Canaria review

Quiet area. But there were no supermarket with meat, vegetables and a good assortment of other groceries. For this you will have to take a taxi to San Fernando (ca 5 EUR).
