The beach at Maspalomas is huge. It has some nice restaurants at the start (some very up market). I walked all the way from the waters edge to the beach at Playa de Inglis. This is a very long walk taking at least an hour but such a great thing to do. The beach hours past the sand dunes which... More

We visited because we were in the area not because we wanted to go on the beach - we are not sun worshippers. We didn't think we would like it much, but when we go off the hotel shuttle bus and started to walk towards the beach - what a treat!!!!! There was a lovely wildlife area with wading birds... More

Lovely beach very busy, lots of shops. Beach was clean and nice. The sun loungers and umbrellas are quite dear to hire though, they charge per lounger and per umbrella, they don't even have a price for a set of 3. But it's all good nice beach.

Real sight , smell and sound as if one is transported to middle of Sahara. We were read it up before we went but in actuality it belied our expectations to our great delight. I think one should be physically more prepared to walk and negotiate the formidable dunes because it is certainly not for faint hearted.

Beautiful beach wide, long, full of naked people. So big that even when it's busy there is still plenty of room for picnics or just lounging about.

After having toured the island, and visited some lovely places, we decided to visit this beach for the first time in many years. This has always been recognised as a haven for nudists, which is fine. However the whole tone of the place seems to have changed, I'm very broadminded but the sexual free-for-all that was going on was beyond... More

We have traveled far and wide, but this beach to me is fantastic, and the best, it's very big and very long, massive sand dunes, parts our for naturist, parts for gay people, and parts for family's, so should be no problem there, the sea is lovely there, and be aware, it gets hot, there are small bars all along...
