Maspalomas Overview

Stunning sandy landscape: It’s essential you see the Dunas de Maspalomas on holidays to Maspalomas. Endless miles of huge sand dunes formed from winds blown from the Sahara make this part of Maspalomas look otherworldly. In fact, as remote and desert-like as it may seem, you’re still very close to bars, restaurants and shops.

Activity-focused holidays: You’ll never be short of things to do on Maspalomas holidays. There are two great golf courses nearby, Meloneras Golf and Campo de Golf Maspalomas. Plus, you’ve got one of the biggest water parks in the Canary Islands, Aqualand. And that’s not forgetting Palmitos Park Zoo and a wonderful botanical park too.

Action-packed holidays: If you like vibrant nightlife on your holidays but still want to get a decent night’s sleep, Maspalomas holidays will be perfect for you. It’s close enough to the lively clubs in Playa del Ingles, but you could also choose to stay and visit the quieter bars in Maspalomas itself.

Activities in Maspalomas

Golfing holidays: There are two fabulous golf courses in Maspalomas, making it a great place for golfing holidays. The nearest and largest is Campo de Golf Maspalomas, which is set in an amazing location near to the coastline and its famous dunes. In comparison, Meloneras Golf Course is actually right alongside the Atlantic Ocean, and although a little smaller, its views are just as impressive.

Aqualand Maspalomas: One of the biggest water parks in the Canary Islands; you’ll find lots of interestingly named slides and rides here. Attractions like Boomerang, Tornado and Kamikaze are pretty self-explanatory, but there are also gentler rides for younger children, making this park the perfect day out for family holidays.

Palmitos Park Zoo: There are several zoos in the Canary Islands, and Palmitos Park is one of the largest. All of the enclosures are clean and spacious, and it’s good to see that the animals are clearly cared for very well indeed. There’s a huge array of exotic species here which children on family holidays in Maspalomas will be excited to see, including dolphins, parrots, monkeys and interestingly, a huge komodo dragon.

Beaches in Maspalomas

Dunas de Maspalomas: Strictly speaking the Dunas de Maspalomas is not a beach as such, but it’s a sandy haven for sunbathing so we thought we’d mention it anyway. This unique feature is caused by sands blown across from the Sahara Desert to the east coast of Gran Canaria, right here in Maspalomas. You can wander here all day, then pick a quiet spot (there’s plenty of space) to enjoy the blazing hot sunshine. Maspalomas holidays simply aren’t complete without a visit to these dunes!

Maspalomas main beach: The dunes end at the Maspalomas main beach, which is a long stretch of golden sand. It’s a very pleasant place for beach holidays, with a wide expanse that leads to the clear, cool waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The beach has conveniences like showers and toilets too, plus a good selection of bars and restaurants.

Restaurants in Maspalomas

Samsara: You’ll enjoy the innovative cooking at this top restaurant on Maspalomas holidays. The menu is an eclectic mix of Spanish, Canarian and Asian influences. The Tuna Carpaccio (very thin slices of raw tuna with balsamic vinegar) is highly recommended, as are the Red Thai Prawns and Loin of Cod with Sticky Coconut Rice. Even if you’re on all inclusive holidays in Maspalomas, it’s worth taking a day out to experience the unique flavours of the Samsara menu.

Ciao Ciao: This classic Italian restaurant is just a little further to the south of Maspalomas, on the coast of Meloneras. Try the Lobster Linguine or go for a classic dish like Lasagne or Pizza.

El Senador: An excellent seafood and Italian-inspired restaurant located on the main beach of Maspalomas. The Mediterranean menu includes signature dishes of Sea Bass baked in Salt, Sucking Pig and classic Paella.

Nightlife in Maspalomas

Relaxing drinks: Maspalomas holidays are slightly more sedate than the noisy neighbouring holidays in Playa del Ingles. Plaza Maspalomas is the main place to be at night time, and you’ll find some nice bars/restaurants here, like Sunset Boulevard plus live music venues such as Alabama’s. 19th Hole is also a favourite bar for many people, as it combines Irish and Golfing themes – sports are shown on the big TV, then later it’s time for traditional live music!

Near to Playa del Ingles: A big advantage of holidays in Maspalomas is the fact you can relax in the quieter surrounds of your resort, but the short trip to Playa del Ingles is always there if you want it! A short ten minute drive is all it takes to get to the centre of Playa del Ingles, where you can enjoy an even larger choice of bars and clubs with a vibrant party atmosphere.

Shopping in Maspalomas

Centro Comerical Faro 2: This large circular mall has everything you could possibly need for shopping during your holidays. With restaurants, bars, electrical, perfumes and clothes shops you’ll be spoilt for choice! There’s even a flea market just outside Faro 2 on Sundays, which sells general bric-a-brac for charities.

Centro Comerical Meloneras: A rather new shopping mall close to Maspalomas, which caters to the upmarket shopper with designer boutiques and international labels. It’s beautifully decked out too, with a glistening clean interior and a powerful air-conditioning system to keep you cool.
