The coastline stretches for 17 kilometers, having sandy beaches and incredible sand dunes. The beach has four areas, one for families and children, two for nudists and one for the gay community.
The dunes can be reached by walking through the entrance on Avenida de Tirajana. After a short walk, you will be in the right place. Remember to wear flip-flops as the sand can get very hot. Every 100 meters or so there will be kiosks selling refreshments.
Maspalomas beach is a true paradise for all beach and fun lovers, for families with children as well as sun worshippers, especially if you want to get away from the cold north European winter!
Just a few kilometers north of Maspalomas is Aqualand Maspalomas, the biggest water park on the island, Holiday World, an amusement park and Palmitos Park, an ornithological park with aquarium, butterfly house and orchids.
