The enchanting sand dunes, known as the Maspalomas Dunes, covers an area of 4 square kilometres. This protected nature reserve also features a palm grove and the La Charca lagoon which is home to a number of nesting birds and a stopover for migrating birds.

Close to the lagoon you will see the towering Maspalomas Lighthouse, the top of which affords views over the entire south coast.

At Arteara you can also take a Manelos Camel Safari through the valley into San Bartolome. This is the same camel farm which organises the camel walks through the Maspalomas Dunes.
