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 the less-touristy side of things at Playa de San Agustin and Motos Tivoli Gran Canaria. Get some historical perspective at Templo Ecumenico El Salvador and Iglesia de San Juan Bautista. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Maspalomas: Las Canteras Beach (in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria) and Museo & Parque Arqueologico Cueva Pintada (in Galdar). There's much more to do: tee off at Anfi Tauro Golf, tour the pleasant surroundings at Playa De Las Burras, explore the fascinating underground world of Barranco de Guayadeque, and take in the awesome beauty at Pico de las Nieves.

To see photos, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Maspalomas trip planner.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Maspalomas is an approximately 18.5-hour flight. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Rio de Janeiro to Maspalomas due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Rio de Janeiro in April, expect Maspalomas to be little chillier, temps between 26°C and 19°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.

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.
