Overview of Maspalomas

Holidays to Gran Canaria offer sun, sand and lots of family-friendly fun. With plenty of regions to choose from, you can really hone in on a spot that embodies everything you’re looking for. While some regions are known for being glitzy and glamorous, Maspalomas, found on the southern coast of the island, takes a bow as one of the more peaceful and laid-back holiday hotspots. The beaches and dunes are heaven for anyone craving some quiet time but there are plenty of fun-filled days out to be had as well, especially for those with children in tow.

Things to do in Maspalomas

The beach is one of the main draws, so if you do venture away from the Mirador Maspalomas by Dunas for a day, be sure to spend some of it on the golden sands. If you head towards Playa del Inglés, you’ll come across the beautiful dunes which you can either walk or take a camel-ride over. There are plenty of activity-rich family days out to be had in Maspalomas, thanks to a huge waterpark, stunning golf course, karting track and plenty of water sports being taught. There’s also a fantastic zoo and a theme park. At night, the El Faro Boulevard is the place to be with plenty of cocktail bars and pubs vying for your patronage with live music and reasonably priced drinks. If you want to really let your hair down, you’ll need to head to Playa del Inglés as that’s where the nightclubs are hiding.
