Fondly referred to as “El Sur” by the locals, Maspalomas serves as a hub of entertainment and beach activity on Gran Canary Island.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Anfi Beach and Minigolf Yumbo. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Playa de Maspalomas, enjoy some diversion at Motos Tivoli Gran Canaria, appreciate the extensive heritage of Paseo Costa Canaria, and take in the waterfront at Strandpromenade Meloneras.

For other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Maspalomas vacation planner.

Drive from Artenara to Maspalomas in 2 hours. In September, plan for daily highs up to 31°C, and evening lows to 25°C. On the 6th (Fri), you'll have the morning to explore before heading back home.
