Clean and friendly, more up market side of the resort. Nice beach, though half nudist. Sand dunes were great.

Nothing special, a local landmark. Went past when we had our early morning jog/walk along the sea front

lovely for people watching and stroll, followed by a drink at one of the many bars. Short taxi ride to and from the hotels/bungalows situated in maspalomas. No hassle whilst strolling, only a couple of peddlers trying to sell cheap toys, polite "No Thanks" and left alone.

Just walked here this morning along the boulevard passing all the lovely restaurants and expensive shops. The lighthouse is right at the start of the 12 km stretch of beach and dunes between maspalomas and playa del ingles. What you see is what you get!!

What more can I say? It's a lighthouse. You can walk up to it and take pictures. The area is quite pleasant to walk round, with plenty of restaurant and bar areas, and expensive shops!
