Nicely kept beach, although can be very windy at times. The walk to Playa del Ingles is a delight, although there are a couple of nudist areas on the way and we found that a few of them were more than happy to parade their wares for all to see - not pleasant.

Nice dunes, great place for walk and relax. Quiet busy - cruising - place, it is usual that people are naked here.

Came to this resort because of the many training advantages. The sand dunes are really breath taking, there fantastic and really clean! Best time to visit is around 5pm when the sun is going down, it's so peaceful and you feel like you've got the whole dunes to yourself! We only came and sunbathed once as we couldn't be bothered...

We have been to Maspalomas many times and we have experienced, at times very strong winds on the beach This can be a real nuisance and can quickly clear the beach.

The famous dunes - the lovely fine sand - the expanse of 6km of beach - the availability of sunbeds and refreshments - all go towards making this an absolute must visit in Gran Canaria. There's everything here to suit hetero, homo, children, nudists at various parts of the beach.
