Great beach and lots of shops, bars and restaurants. We visited every day of our week's holiday, spending a full day on the beach, two sun beds and an umbrella for only €7.50. Easy to pop up to the promenade for a drink or lunch. We walked over the dunes, but you need to be fit to go the whole... More

If one didn't know about the sand dunes at Maspalomas, these would be a true surprise on an island of mainly rocky coasts but advertising (and reports like this) remove the surprise element so having seen the 'Saharan' pictures one expects to be very impressed. Sadly the area is smaller and less spectacular than one expects and one has to... More

Long sandy beach, with beach bars, shopping options, restaurants and all you need. The spectacular part is, that there is s mini "deser" just next to the beach. So you can easily walk a few meters from the sea and climb up the sand dunes to get nice views and some fun in the sand. Difficult to park directly at... More

This place is really beautiful and worth a visit. Our kids 3,6,8 years had SO much fun climbing up and down the dunes. If you just want to pay a short visit 1 hour is enough, but you could also bring your bathing suit and walk to the beach.

Great dunes in Maspalomas which are adjacent to the beach. Dunes stretch for miles. Children loved rolling down the dunes
