Playa del Ingles - Gran Canaria Hotels

Mini guide to Playa del Ingles - Gran Canaria


The resort of Playa del Inglis is situated on the southern coast of Gran Canaria, 56kms south of the busy town of Las Palmas. This quintessential holiday resort has everything you might expect of a resort, including sandy beaches, multitudes of restaurants, and a frenetic nightlife charged by hordes of tourists.

Away from the beaches, the Kasbah affords a look at modern life, with its commercial centre and busy sidewalks. Alternatively, you can head to the adjoining resort of San Augustin. This resort is somewhat quieter and maintains some semblance of an atmospheric fishing town.

Most people come to the island for the beaches, and Playa del Inglis has a pristine sandy beach that runs westwards towards Maspalomas. Here you'll find some incredible sand dunes that run a mile inland, and you might also see some of the many nudists that inhabit the beach. A pleasant promenade stretches from here a couple of miles east to San Agustin.

You won't ever be stuck for things to do at Playa del Inglis, as the resort 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 paced with the young and restless, looking for holiday romance and exotic cocktails.

It's worth your while hiring a car, as the island is packed with theme parks, including Sioux City, Wild West, Aqua Sur water park, Camel Safari, Palmitos animal park and a crocodile park. It's also possible to sail around the island on a hired yacht.

All the islands have airports, but Tenerife receives most international flights. The airport at Playa del Inglis is 29kms from the resort; taxis and buses are available at the airport. 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.
