Playa del Ingles

Playa del Ingles, or the Englishman’s Beach as it translates, is situated to the south of the island of Gran Canaria, in the archipelago Canary Islands.

The resort is hugely popular with tourists, especially British tourists, who come to enjoy the wide sandy beaches, which stretch from Maspalomas to San Agustin, all-year-round sunshine and the busy nightlife.

About town
The purpose-built resort of Playa del Ingles has an excellent infrastructure, and for those looking for a destination with lots of facilities and attractions then you won’t be disappointed.

The bustling town is made up of apartment blocks, hotels and shopping centres; there is an immense choice for those who want to indulge in cheap souvenir shopping and bargain hunting, as in many place you can haggle with shop owners to get the price down.  The Plaza Maspalomas is a good place to head, and there is also a market every Wednesday and Saturday morning.

The main seafront has an attractive promenade, the Paseo Costa Canaria, where you can take an evening stroll along to the Playa de las Burras, where Maspalomas starts. Or you can simply sit in the shade of the verdant gardens that line the promenade.

Beach
The beach is what attracts many to Playa del Ingles, a wide golden sandy stretch, which reaches to the sand dunes of Maspalomas.

You can partake in a number of water sports on the beach, including jet-skiing, windsurfing, scuba diving and banana boat rides.

Leisure Attractions

Aside from sunbathing, water sports and shopping, there are heaps of leisure attractions in and around Playa del Ingles. Visitors can enjoy activities such as mini golf, tennis, water parks, horse and camel riding and go-carting.

The resort is an excellent choice for families, who could enjoy a different activity every day of their holiday if they had the energy!

Don’t expect to find many cultural attractions in Playa del Ingles; the resort is purely for fun and relaxation. However, the Island isn’t so large, that you can’t visit other parts of the island, where you will find cultural and historic attractions.

Eating out
Traditional Spanish, British, Chinese, Pizzeria’s, Indian, Mexican and of course fast food.  In Playa del Ingles you won’t go hungry, whatever your taste in cuisine!

Nightlife
If you are looking for a resort with lots of nightlife, then we can recommend Playa del Ingles. The town is packed with bars, pubs and clubs, including famous venues such as Cream, Pascha and Chinawhites. Again there is something to suit everyone’s taste, from all nightclubs, to smart cocktail bars, to traditional Spanish tapas bars.

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 in Playa del Ingles average 26-28C; during the winter months the temperature rarely drops below 22 degrees, making it a perfect all year round destination.

Playa del Inglés review

Playa del Inglés is a bit run in places and it can be hard to find a decent restaurant.
