Maspalomas

— 4 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 explore and learn at Museo & Parque Arqueologico Cueva Pintada and Tomas Morales Museum-House. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Templo Ecumenico El Salvador and The Mint Company Luxe Meloneras. Venture out of the city with trips to La Fortaleza Centro de Interpretation (in Santa Lucia de Tirajana) and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Las Canteras Beach, Casa de Colon, &more). And it doesn't end there: join in the after-dark buzz at AstroGC, kick back and relax at Playa de Maspalomas, look for gifts at Tresor Noir, and stroll through Playa de Mogan.

To find other places to visit, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, use the Maspalomas tour itinerary planning website.

Often described as a "continent in miniature" because of its wildly varied landscapes and climates, Grand Canaria is mostly known for its long coastline where tourism thrives at modern resorts. The island is also a ideal for sightseeing by bike or on foot. A wide range of trails, from easy to challenging, link the island’s picturesque coastline and the quieter inland areas, which are dotted by green ravines and sleepy villages. Savvy travelers explore the island’s ancient but well-preserved cave dwellings, many of which have been turned into small restaurants serving a myriad of local delicacies unlikely to be found on the menu of any big-city eatery.
