Some of our Gran Carnarian villa rentals are located in Maspalomas, which is a sophisticated resort on the southern tip of the island. This quiet, upmarket resort offers peace and tranquillity to its devoted holidaymakers. It is one of the oldest touristic towns in Gran Canaria. It boasts more than 6km of soft, sandy beaches, including the famous sand dunes.
Maspalomas is separated from the Playa de Ingles resort by a spectacular undulating sea of sand dunes, a protected area that provides a habitat for some rare species of flora and fauna, and a favourite haunt for nudists.
Gran Canaria Beaches
Fine sandy beaches backed by spectacular, wind-sculpted dunes, set against the blue crystal sea. The beach is split into four zones, one part for families and children, two sections for nudists and the fourth for the gay community. There is an array of beach bars, restaurants and shops along the front and water sports and leisure facilities on the beach. Maspalomas beach is a paradise for beach lovers, sun seekers and families.
The Playa de Ingles beach, the other side of the sand dunes, is nearly 3km long. It is one of the most famous beaches in Europe, and is a favourite of those staying at a luxury villa in Gran Canaria.
