Maspalomas - Canary Islands Hotels

Mini guide to Maspalomas - Canary Islands


Maspalomas is located 59kms southwest of Las Palmas on Gran Canaria, and only 2.4kms from the resort of Playa Del Inglis. With a panorama of barren-looking mountains and undulating sand dunes reaching to the shore, this resort is a haven for tourists searching for an idyllic hideaway.

The resort of Maspalomas, with an abundance of modern villas and hotels, caters to those seeking luxury. At the Oasis Maspalomas, there's a golf course and some small modern shopping centres, overshadowed by the towering hotels.

Maspalomas beach stretches out to join with Playa Del Inglis, which is packed with sunbathers and parasols; it's best to arrive here early in the morning to get a good spot. Unfortunately, the shoreline at some points is quite rocky and unsuitable for swimming, although for the most part, the waters are safe.

Three modern shopping centres, as well as some cafés and restaurants are situated along the promenade. It's possible to find some good bargains in this area, but the designer goods remain ostentatiously priced. You'll find a host of upmarket eateries on the promenade as well.

You won't ever be stuck for things to do around Maspalomas; the island offers everything from golf to windsurfing. There's an amusement park and water park, as well as scuba diving and deep sea fishing opportunities. At night, the place is chaotically packed with the young and restless looking for holiday romance and exotic cocktails.

All the islands have airports (the one at La Gomera is being upgraded), but Tenerife receives the most international flights. Gran Canaria Airport is 32kms southwest of Maspalomas; taxis and buses are available. If you are coming from the Spanish mainland, then there is one ferry, operated by Trasmediterranea, which makes the 40-hour journey from Cádiz to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
