Maspalomas, also known by locals as Maspalomas Costa Canaria, is made up of numerous beach resorts, including: Playa del Inglés, Águila, San Agustín and Las Burras. It is also home to nearly 17 km of gorgeous coastline, complete with sand dunes, sandy beaches and shallow turquoises water that is the perfect temperature all year round. Essentially, Maspalomas is Heaven on Earth for beach lovers looking to indulge in a Spanish beach vacation with the family, friends or just you and a loved one.
Manpalomas has a more upper-scale resort, too, which houses a few smart hotels, as well as luxurious residences for rent. This section is also home to one of the largest golf courses on the entire Gran Canaria Island. This resort is separated from the nearest resort, Playa del Ingles, by 400 hectares of sand dunes - which has actually been declared a national park, which means you can only cross the dunes by foot, or on camel. This massive separation really makes the luxurious resort of Maspalomas feel like it is on its own planet¬. While the dunes provide privacy, they also provide beauty as they create the habitat needed for numerous rare plant species to grow, some of which can only be found on the Canary Islands.
One thing to keep in mind while taking a stroll through the dunes of Maspalomas is that it is a real favourite hotspot for the nudist community. There may be nothing wrong with the community, but it is certainly one that you would like to be aware of before walking into a group of them!
One of the most beautiful parts of the nature reserve in Maspalomas can be found at the Western end of the reserve. El Oasis is a sea-water lagoon that is surrounded by palm trees and is home to a plethora of migratory birds that stop here on their way to Africa from all over Europe. There is also Faro de Maspalomas, which is very close to El Oasis. Faro de Maspalomas is a lighthouse that was built back in 1886 and stands 65 m tall. The lighthouse dominates the skyline of the area and still serves as a warning beacon for ships passing through the region.
As if the luxurious beaches and exotic wildlife and plant life were not enough to make Maspalomas skyrocket to the top of you must-visit list, there is so much more to lure you here, including Aqualand Maspalomas - the biggest water park on the entire island. And, for more family-friendly fun, there is also Holiday World, and aptly named amusement park loaded with everything one would expect, including a lofty Ferris wheel. A crowd-pleasing favourite is also Sioux City, which is a wild west themed park loaded with fun games and child-friendly activities.
You can also take in some local culture and visit the wonderful Mundo Aborigen, which has been deemed a place of cultural, social and historical significance by the local Canarian government.
