“Great day out!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Right up in the mountains. We thought it was excellent value (29€ per adult) considering there were several shows on throughout the day. Particular favourites were the dolphins and rare birds - very impressive. The park was very clean with great facilities.

“Not too good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Well... This beach was not the most beautiful. And not too fun.
The nice thing was that there were good place for ball games (f.e).

“Worth see only for the dunes.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

Beach is average (dark sand). But the dunes behind the beach are amazing. The sand was brought from Sahara in 60's.
sand very hot so some shoes needed.

“A great beach but a bit out of the way”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

Maspalomas beach has great sand and is divided up into zones for all different users. The only snag is that from most of the resort it's a bus or taxi ride away. It's accessible by walking across the dunes but the walk is not for the faint hearted! Remember this beach is frequented by lots of gay men and users should be open minded.

“Shopping and bars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Good selection of shops and bars and varied evening entertainment. Shops were expensive for clothes. My advise is barter and go to other areas.
