Playa del Ingles

The Yumbo centre provides a great variety of entertainment, dining and shopping. Ideal for families and young couples looking for a beach resort. 35 minutes coach transfer.


Playa del Ingles has a long, sandy beach and is backed by a promenade packed with bars and cafes.

The beach is wide and well serviced and you can walk for miles along the sands and into the vast Maspalomas dunes. Despite being very popular, particularly near the bars and cafes, the beach is very long so you can alway find a quiet spot and there are also sections recognised as a nudist beach and a gay beach.

Things to Do

The resort offers a good availability of water sports including jet-skis, kayaking, banana boats and scuba diving as well as many other activities from cycling and hiking tours to horse-riding and camel safaris; jeep and quad bike adventures to dolphin spotting and swimming with sea lions.

Annual events which take place at Playa del Ingles include the Easter Carnival and the fireworks which accompany the Funeral of the Sardine. In May, the Yumbo Centre is the venue for Gay Pride, comprising a week of partying with shows and parades.

Out and About

Playa del Ingles is packed with hundreds of bars, cafes and restaurants, most of which are located in large shopping centres. The main centres in the heart of the resort are the Kasbah, the Metro and the Maspalomas Plaza; for gay nightlife the Yumbo and the Cita are popular and, near the beach you have the Annexo centres and the Tropical.

Playa del Ingles is known for its lively nightclubs and comedy drag shows, which makes it particularly popular with couples and groups.

Cheap Holidays 2014

Our aim is to offer you cheap holidays, while offering exceptional customer support.

When we say "cheap holidays", these are the same holidays you can get everywhere else, but by not having an expensive call centre or sales staff working on commission, our prices are hard to beat.

We're so confident our holidays are cheaper that we offer a Lowest Price Guarantee, if you can find your holiday cheaper anywhere else we'll refund the difference AND throw in an extra £5!

We also show you the prices of our cheap holidays right from the start, with no hidden charges. All unavoidable fees and taxes are included in the price, not added on later in the booking process. We even include basic baggage charges in all our flight prices.
