Well, honestly speaking, this is one of the worst beach ever you can find in Canaries Islands !!! The beach is most of the time overcrowded, meaning full of people everywhere, walking from one part of the beach to the other one, almost all of them trying to take a bath into the Atlantic ocean at the same place, very...

very nice clean beach, they put more sand on the coast line to cover up the little rocks, it's now a pleasure to have a beach walk and fall in love with the enviroment in stead of watching for the stones and get annoyed. in my holiday i did 75km walking. muchas gracias ayudemiento de maspalomas

The best pictures I have from the summer holidays come from Playa de Maspalomas. I love this place for the spacious and increadible dunes which are very impressive, especially at the sun set:) The sand is very hot, impossible to walk without any sandals or flip flops, still difficult to walk in any shoes.

We had a marvellous day at the beach. No swimming or sunbathing as it was too windy-but we had a great time. Never seen sand fly around so quickly. The kids loved it and the beach emptied quite quickly so there was loads of room for them to play in...

Dunes begins in Playa des Ingles, a hectic location and extend to Maspalomas a quieter resort. Dunes are overgrown near the urbanisation. Towards the sea dunes are shifting sand dunes. At the Atlantic there is a eight kilometres long beach between both locations.

Lovely warm sea, soft sand. Good for body boarding and swimming. Shops along the seafront and restaurants too. This beach can be accessed from Riu Palace Oasis if you are a guest.
