  • I love to venture through the dunes of Maspalomas, there is a beautiful view to the sea and the magnificent sunset. I strongly recommend!

  • Beautiful beach, and having regard to its size you are not forced to huddle like sardines for sunbathing. Thanks to the dunes on the beach you can go all day without getting bored. You have to be very careful, because often present sandstorms. Tip: given the km of beach would suggest doing a clothing-optional Beach and another not. I don't know how many peas and saggy balls I had to undergo (Exhibitionists)

  • We found the small piece of nature is not spectacular. Also unfortunate is that there are many naturist walking around. Even on the common paths.

  • Beautiful płace. I think it’s a best płace for sunbath on Island. After day on the beach you can go to nice walk over Ocean coast and many restaurants on the other side. Strongly recommend to visit.
  • Great place to visit. When we went it was clean, we didn’t see any rubbish or cigarette buts. Go there before 10-11 max because you can find yourself in the middle of the sand and all of a sudden every inch of sand is burning. The sand heats up really fast so the best is to go in the morning. It’s a MUST to see this place while you are in Gran Canaria.
  • Probably the closest I have ever been to experiencing a desert. Dam hot but not too far away from the sea so you can cool off.
  • Nice place to visit unfortunately the people place rocks forming names on the sand that ruins the landscape also as is common the is lots of cigaret butts everywhere. The beach is awesome and safe and before to get in the dunes you can find restrooms and information office.
  • beautiful place but be warned that along the beach the majority of people sun bathing are Nude! 90% are all nude. the camel trek was ok but I thought the camels were suffering a bit. If you are doing the trek make sure you do it in the morning as it is not that hot. Dont do it in the afternoon, it is just too hot out there.
