With 4 children and this nice place the holiday was exciting and relaxing. Visited Holiday World with a lot of games, Aqualand with waterslides and fun all day and Palmitos Park where the children had a splendid time with a lot of different animals and shows for dolphins and parrotts. The beach is just stunning.

Great day out, beautiful soft sandy beach. Parasol and sunbed cost EU5.00 24 June 2015 price. Word of caution...the beach has different themes, nudity and gay areas abound. Just need to know where you want to go so you don't end up in the wrong area for your preference. Shopping if you fancy that is also a great way of... More

If you are a beach lover there are fewer nicer Long Long Beach with a mini dessert of sand dunes behind it, segregated areas for families,nudists, and the gay community. Beach bars and organised sun lounger areas for those that want them and miles of soft warm sand for those that dont. Sun worshippers paradise. It has been rumoured that... More

There is not much than the dunes in Playa de Maspalomas, but that is enough. Dunes are amazing, beautiful and interesting place.

Nice area and beautiful beach. I've been to several beaches on the island and this one was my favourite. It's a nice clean long beach with no disruption from any motorized water sport. You may rent a long chair or bring your own beach towel and lay on the sand. I find it very safe to leave my stuff behind... More

This has a wide array of shops and restaurants to cater for most people. The area was very clean and relaxing. We loved just walking up the front after having a great meal.
