This beach would be really good for the ones who love wind, eg surfers, it's incredibly strong there, to the point that the workers of the beach have to put the soft "fences" around the sunbeds as the winds bring alot of sand everywhere. The dunes are a must see definitely!

Early morning walks on this beach, if tide permits are always a highlight for us. A 10Km walk every morning helps you to oxygenize and stay slim.

Endless walks alongside the Sea or over the natural Dunes landscape are possible. Too many tourists but very much unique

Generally a beautiful place, worth going, however laying on the beach wasn't a real pleasure. The constant wind and sand in your face, eyes, mouth isn't high on my list of relaxing activities! Dunes are stunning though.

We walked some days along the front from our hotel. It was a nice easy walk. The dunes were large and well worth a visit.

What a wonder place. Long and Wide soft sandy beach with huge Sahara sand dunes reaching higher than 50ft into the crystal clear sky. The beach runs from Maspalomas to playa d ingles and would take over a hour to walk. Behind the beach are the dunes stretching for what seems like miles. Next to the dunes is a nature... More
