The sand dunes of Maspalomas is absolutely breathtaking! Spent a few hours playing in the sand and the view was just great! Be aware though, sand will get slap you from all sides if it’s windy!

Absolutely stunning dunes and beaches, gorgeous to have a walk along and sit at the many cafes and watch the world go by. Unfortunately too many Africans trying to sell bracelets, sunglasses and actually approaching people in bars and restraints who are eating or drinking.

It’s a wide expanse of beach flanked by some impressive dunes. Some bloke had managed to get his baby stroller on top of one, which was mightily impressive.

We are here at this moment. Around 24 degrees during daytime and sometimes a bit windy. In the evening it cools down to about 14 degrees. Some people dress like its wintertime, others run around in T-shirt.
