The unbelievable beach stretching from Playa del Ingles round to Faro de Maspalomas is one of my all-time favourites. Its so big, has so much happening- families, naturists, gays, swingers, walkers, surfers... It also has those magnificent dunes that continually change shape and position.

This beach is beautiful. Miles of sand and dunes. There may be some nudes though, so stay on the main beach if you dot want to see that.

Very busy and not everybody's cup of tea. Well placed restaurants and facilities. It was interesting to see how much Maspalomas had changed since the last time we were there.

When i saw the Maspalomas dune i thought "it's a miracle". When i touched them i realised that it is true - the san is nice only to have a look, but not to go on or to touch. Don't go there when is very windy because your eyes and hair will be full of the sand :)

Great beaches, sand dunes and water nature reserve. Good restaurants and bars. The thing to watch for is Africian Ladies trying to give you friendship bracelets and then asking for money, before they release you from their grasp.also the usual sunglasses and watch sellers, on the Prom.
