Maspalomas, also known as the Maspalomas Costa Canaria, consists of the beach resorts of Aguila, Las Burras, San Agustin and Playa del Ingles. Here you’ll find a 2,000 hectare strip of land with 17 km of wonderful coastline with sand dunes, wide sandy beaches, and an excellent all-year-round climate – a paradise for beach lovers and family holidays.
The more up-market Maspalomas resort, with smart hotels, luxury residences and the largest golf course on the island, is separated from Playa del Inglés by a spectacular stretch of 400 hectares of dunes, which in 1994 were designated a national park. You can only cross the dunes on foot or by camel, which makes you believe you’re in a different part of the world altogether.
The sand dunes of Maspalomas are a favourite zone for nudists and the gay community – so do bear this in mind when strolling along.
