Playa de Maspalpmas is perfect for everyone. While many people sunbath nude and many families from across Europe come here to vacation, it is also perfect for gays. Number 7 and 8 I believe kiosk presents one of the biggest gay beaches in Europe. Very welcoming, no judgement. The dessert is unbelievable. Careful - cruising area. Be prepared. Ocean is... More

We were here September 2012 and we were thrilled to be back. The sandy dunes, the beach and the big sandy place between with al it's bushes. Go there at the end of the afternoon and you will see what happens! Looking for some hot experiences, don't miss this!

This place is nice for a walk along the seaside. Although sold as a dune desert, it is more like a large hilly beach. Nothing to do and while walking around it you'll automatically end-up on the nude part, not funny while walking around with your kids.

Lovely golden sands. Strong high waves for surfing or just swimming. Nudist beach is at the bit near the dunes. U can walk the full length of beach. Couple of wee Rocky bits. Sand dunes are a sight to see. Sand was roasting hot. Need to be fit to climb dunes as sand really soft. But great experience. Lots of... More

This is a must visit when in Gran Canaria. It is truly wonderful. The nudist area is fantastic with wide open spaces and plenty of quieter areas for those who don't want to be bothered with everyone. A great place to relax.

This an extensive soft sandy beach with undulating dunes. If planning a days visit sun beds would be recommended. The beach is segregated area for those wishing not to wear clothes. The water is clear and clean. A visit to this beach is a must!!
