Maspalomas is one of the most popular regions on the Spanish island of Gran Canaria. It stretches for almost two dozen kilometers along the coast and unites several resorts, each of which has its own flavor and will appeal to vacationers.
Playa del Ingles
The most popular place in Maspalomas is Playa del Ingles. This beach is full of apartments, hotels, restaurants, shopping centers, shops and entertainment centers. Holidays on Playa del Ingles will appeal to both families with children and young people.
The beach is about 3 kilometers long and is often called one of the best in Gran Canaria. In the west, the beach smoothly turns into dunes, so walks in this part of the island are remembered for beautiful views.
To the west of Playa del Inglés is Campo Internacional - the most respectable and very green resort of Maspalomas. The most expensive hotels are located in a place called "Oasis". This is a site with a natural oasis of palm, located near the ocean. Here you can also see the symbol of the Maspalomas region - the lighthouse, which is 55 meters high and is more than a century old. Guests of Oasis Park can ride camels across the dunes or admire the rare birdlife in the freshwater lake.
San Agustin and Bahia Feliz
At some distance from other cities are the resorts of Baia Feliz and San Agustin. Baia Feliz is popular with windsurfing enthusiasts, while San Agustin is a popular destination for those looking to enjoy a quiet and relaxing holiday. If you get bored, you can go to a variety show or a casino, jump with a parachute or fly a helicopter at a local flying club, feel like a cowboy in a village decorated in the style of the "Wild West". Lovers of water activities can spend time in the Aqua Sur water park.
