Maspalomas, Gran Canaria

— 2 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.
Let the collections at La Fortaleza Centro de Interpretation and Casa de Colon capture your imagination. Popular historic sites such as El Faro de Maspalomas and Paroquia de San Bernardo are in your itinerary. Change things up with a short trip to Las Canteras Beach in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (about 46 minutes away). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Playa de Maspalomas, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, tour the pleasant surroundings at Playa de Amadores, and gear up at Motos Tivoli Gran Canaria.

Plan a trip to Maspalomas easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

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.
