Immerse yourself in a sea of golden sand on the southern beaches of Gran Canaria

If you’re looking for idyllic beaches, you’ve come to the right place. Maspalomas has a unique and invaluable coastline where you will find some of the most well-known landmarks of Gran Canaria, such as the Maspalomas Dunes and its emblematic lighthouse.

The Maspalomas Dunes is a natural protected area. It has been categorised as a Special Nature Reserve and encompasses 404 hectares. The moving sand dunes originate in Playa del Inglés and form a border with Charca de Maspalomas. The sand dunes are constantly moved by the force of the wind.

Playa del Inglés

Playa del Inglés is one of the most famous and busiest beaches of Gran Canaria. Its pleasant year-round climate and vast tourist offering such as its promenade with shops and restaurants make it a unique coastal area with a fantastic atmosphere. Here you will find many beach bars, deckchair services, water sports and a wide variety of restaurants.

This beach with golden sand stretches for almost three kilometres and can be found next to the Maspalomas Dunes Special Natural Reserve. Exploring the reserve is a must for all visitors to the island. It is important to respect this natural protected area. Projects such as Masdunas try to stop the current degradation by remarking the pathways, among other initiatives.
