  • Walked from the lighthouse across the beach and sand dunes. Worth going later to see the sun set. There were lots of damp sand spots which were not pleasant to step on or look at. 
  • A great beach with showers etc. a bit of a strong breeze today...but better than yesterday's near hurricane! Great places to eat just off it too. 
  • A good promenade that connects 2 beaches of Maspalomas. Arrive at the lighthouse and then this beach that ends in the protected dunes and if you continue walking arrived to playa del Ingles

  • 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.
