Maspalomas, Gran Canaria

— 9 nights

Home to Gran Canary's Most Beautiful Beach

Fondly referred to as “El Sur” by the locals, Maspalomas serves as a hub of entertainment and beach activity on Gran Canary Island.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Las Canteras Beach and Playa de Maspalomas. Change things up with these side-trips from Maspalomas: Mirador Paseo de Taliarte (in Telde), Plaza Del Rosario (in Aguimes) and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Ermita de San Antonio Abad, Walk In Gran Canaria - Day Tour, &more). The adventure continues: get reinvigorated at Dobrev Wellness and Massage, enjoy the sand and surf at Playa de Mogan, observe the fascinating underwater world at Palmitos Park, and explore the striking landscape at Reserva Natural Especial de Las Dunas de Maspalomas.

For photos, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Maspalomas trip itinerary planner.

Toronto, Canada to Maspalomas is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Toronto to Maspalomas due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Toronto in January, expect Maspalomas to be much warmer, temps between 24°C and 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Tue) early enough to drive to Agaete.

Modern, cosmopolitan, and very trendy, the Canary Islands are a major center for European tourism. With a total population of about two million, these seven diverse islands are as distinct from each other as they are from the mainland of Spain. The first settlers arrived from North Africa, building an economic system loosely based around farming. Invaded by Europeans in the 14th century, the islands gradually developed a more European feel, but with a mixed population of ethnicities rarely found anywhere else in the world. While agriculture is still alive and well here, the tropical beaches and vibrant nightlife tend to top any vacation itinerary.
