One of the best nude beaches. Here is the private beach for couples and a private beach for gays. If you go into the dunes there is a great chance that you see someone having sex. The beach is long and goes into the multi-kilometer so there are many who go traveling there to peep

Third time to this area and it's a lovely clean beach Two beds and a parasol are only 7.5€ and the beach is miles long which is wide and sandy but wear your flip flops as the sand gets red hot. The dunes look lovely and there are lots of lovely walks in both directions.

Just like being in the desert. You feel like you have been dropped into somewhere miles from anywhere. Great fun trying to climb the dunes and even more laughing and falling back down

The Western section of the beach si connected with Maspalomas' tourist nexus and offers a complex range... More

This incredible desert area comprising of huge sand dunes is a truly amazing feature in Masapalomas. Sandwiched between the metropolis of hotels that sprawl across the area and the sea it is a preserved treasure of Gran Canaria. As you approach the dunes along the beach you do not get a sense of scale of these dunes and it is... More

The beach was a lovely for a stroll and a bit of a swim. Fairly busy but not too bad. There is a rock pool to spy little crabs and creatures, which is lovely. There is a nature reserve close by too.

Walks are a bit sparce of detail with around 4-5k between our hotel and the beach and in the other direction our hotel and the theme park. There is a free tourist bus going between these attractions though, so... More
