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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Casa de Colon and Museo Nestor. Get some cultural insight at Vegueta and El Faro de Maspalomas. Explore Maspalomas' surroundings by going to Las Canteras Beach (in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria) and La Fortaleza Centro de Interpretation (in Santa Lucia). And it doesn't end there: buy something for everyone on your list at Yumbo Centrum, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, stroll through Playa de Mogan, and take in the dramatic natural features at Reserva Natural Especial de Las Dunas de Maspalomas.

For reviews, ratings, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Maspalomas tour itinerary site.
