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.
Get outdoors at Playa de Maspalomas and Reserva Natural Especial de Las Dunas de Maspalomas. Shop till you drop at Yumbo Centrum and Mercado del Puerto. Explore Maspalomas' surroundings by going to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Calle Triana, Casa del Perfume Canario, &more) and Telde (Las Terrazas Parque Comercial Jinamar & Playa de Tufia). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Playa de Amadores, discover the deep blue sea with Canary Diving Adventures, enjoy the sand and surf at Playa de San Agustin, and indulge in some personalized pampering at Massage Escape.

You can plan Maspalomas trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your 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.
