lovely beach miles long very clean it can be windy but be careful if you bring kids along as it has nudist areas and they tend to go for a walk along the whole beach

We were on holiday in maspalomas and had heard of their sand dunes so we went to take a look and it reminded me of the Sahara desert we had a great walk across the Dunes to the sea and back. Very spectacular.
