Holidays to Maspalomas are first and foremost about the sand, with a 6-kilometre beach backed by huge, rolling dunes. But this stylish resort also crams in seafront restaurants and great days out.
Cruise & Stay holidays in Gran Canaria’s most famous resort are just the ticket. Maspalomas gives you sun-soaked beaches by day and an electric atmosphere by night.
A beloved tourist hotspot
Modern Maspalomas is the result of a tourism development project launched in the 1960s – since then, the area has become a prime holiday destination that is especially popular with Northern Europeans. Maspalomas features a wealth of entertainment and leisure facilities alongside a town including hospitals, schools, casinos and plenty of shops.
Thanks to the incredible climate of Gran Canaria, with average summer temperatures of around 26 degrees Celsius, the resort is the largest tourist destination in the Canary Islands. You can expect over 15 kilometres of glorious coastline that features billowing dunes, white-sand beaches and family-friendly shallow waters – perfect for a beach break before or after a cruise. Playa del Inglés is a popular place to stay.
Natural beauty and luxury
The Natural Reserve of the Dunes of Maspalomas is deemed one of Gran Canaria’s most important landmarks and has been a nature reserve since 1897. The surrounding area is home to the island’s largest golf course, as well as luxurious hotels and fine dining restaurants. And the lighthouse, south of the resort, is one for the photo gallery – El Faro de Maspalomas has been towering over the coastline since 1886.
Fun for families
Visiting families are in for a treat. Maspalomas is home to the Holiday World leisure complex – the largest funfair in the Canary Islands. Kids will love the astonishing range of open-air amusements and attractions including a rollercoaster, seal shows, an amusement arcade and classic dodgems alongside an impressive spa and gym. A number of fantastic cafés and restaurants area dotted around the complex, making it the ideal location for a full day of family fun.
