It took about 1/2 hour to walk to Maspalomas but not many shops on the way, taxis ok 4.50 euro. We like to walk along the beach to Playa del Ingles but when we did it this time there was a very strong wind and the sand was blowing all over us. But good fun.

Beaches

The extensive sands at Maspalomas Beach and warm, calm, clear waters are a ideal for sun-bathing, snorkelling and swimming. Plenty of other water-sports are available from diving to fishing, sailing to jet-skiing and there is a marina at Pasito Blanco (4km) for boat trips and ferries to nearby resorts.

Things to Do

Leisure attractions in and around Maspalomas include Holiday World amusement park, the three golf courses, Maspalomas Golf, Meloneras Golf and Salobre Golf; Maspalomas Aqualand waterpark (3.5km), the Aboriginal themed village of Mundo Aborigen (7km), Palmitos Park zoo and gardens (11km) and the Wild West themed park of Sioux City (10km).

The annual carnival festivities usually take place over the course of the week surrounding Ash Wednesday and the Regional Folklore Festival is at the end of May/early June. Another popular cultural event is the Masdanza, International Festival of Contemporary Dance held in October. In May, the Yumbo Centre is the venue for Gay Pride, comprising a week of partying with shows and parades.

Out and About

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.

Nearby Attractions

Behind the resort the Fataga Ravine provides a rugged and natural landscape dotted with palm groves and archaeological sites. Travelling on the main road through the ravine you can explore the pretty villages of Arteara (14.5km), Fataga (19.5km) San Bartolome (26km).

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.

Between Maspalomas and Fataga, you can visit the Mundo Aborigen and learn of the pre-hispanic, Guanche culture at this reconstructed aboriginal village and archaeological museum.
