The island offers a variety of beaches, each one a little different to the next. With a coastline some 60 km long, there is plenty of sun, sea and sand to go round. The famous Maspalomas beach, offers a vast expanse of beautiful dunes, and is often seen in photographs of the island. The beach has areas especially dedicated to families, but can get very busy.

Playa del Ingles is a big beach, which can be a little windy at times, especially late in the afternoon and evening. It offers plenty to do there including a promenade with lots of shops, bars, restaurants, and stalls to rent jet-skis. Surrounded by plenty of hotels, apartments, shops, discos, this is one of the best beaches on Gran Canaria. Or you could head out to try
