The sad is nice, the water is nice and the people are fine! Really worth a visit! Can be a bit windy which will make the fine sand fly, so get a wind breaker or pay to get into the sun bed area!

Lovely sand and not not overlooked by excessive hotel development. There are many restaurants arranged along an alleyway lined with restaurants and kiosks

Get through the gross beach town and seedy casinos to the beach and dunes! They are beautiful and make for a gorgeous wander.

Vast but if windy you will need to take a windbreak or pay to go into a sunbed area. The naturist area is signposted, and is quite a walk from Maspolmas or Playa del Ingles.

Here you can have sun or sea, walk or lay down, have company or be by yourself. If you want the sun experience, this is it. The Atlantic is always fresh but warm in Maspalomas.

Amazing dunes. Beautiful lagoon. Unique environment. Walked right round to Playa del Ingles. Not so impressed by acres of naked elderly German flesh!

Very long beach , about 6 km , with great dunes behind. Part of it is nude. A lot of people , but the dunes are quiet. Here you can walk for hours if it's not to hot !! It';s realy amazing , protected area. Great for making foto's , early or late on the day !!
