  • A truly unique place. Don't forget your swimming suit because after Dunas you will get to the beach with the golden sand. Drink lots of water and cover your head, It's hot and windy there. P.S. We did...  more »
  • I don't want to doubt, but of course that the sand is so much! so will put time to get here, and then Africa is not right on the doorstep, that is two strokes! Are at least 250 km to get to Western Sahara. However the dunes are just like Safari jackets. For lovers of the desert, like me, walk to a delicious sensation.

  • So clear that Playa de Maspalomas must get at least a visit. Beautiful sand dunes. You don't want to bathe, it is nice to walk in the water's edge. When the wind blows, you should avoid the place, then blowing sand hard.

  • Great beach. Very wide and long with sections for all tastes if sun bathers. The dunes give a special athmosphere that make the place different from all other beaches. It's not for snorkelers, the sand is thin making the water not that clear. The lack off rocks also nakes the place lacking of marine life. Overall is well worth a beach day.
  • A special beach to say the least very good and clean
  • Beautiful long, long beach.
  • New beds and umbrellas what would be especially significantly longer than currently available again. Otherwise is here a good mood with often nice views.
