Hotels / October 7, 2014

Set at the southernmost tip of Gran Canaria is the popular holiday resort of Maspalomas. A favourite with holidaymakers from northern Europe, the town is known for its party atmosphere and nightlife, as well as its upmarket hotels, wide sandy beaches, clean and shallow waters, and excellent climate. Take a look at our range of Maspalomas hotels, all situated within easy reach of the resort's main attractions.

Local attractions

Being a beach resort, it is the stunning coastline that attracts most visitors to Maspalomas. The beautiful sand sweeps around the coast for 17km, making the area a favourite with families as well as sun seekers looking to work on their tan.

Maspalomas' sand dunes are one of the area's major features. Further back from the coastline they become a wildlife reserve, where access is restricted to protect the plants and animals. The western end of the reserve has become a popular resting place for many species of migratory birds making the journey between Europe and Africa.

Palmitos Park to the north of the resort is a favourite attraction with visitors who go to watch the park's dolphins during the daily shows.

Staying active

Aqualand Maspalomas is the largest water park on the island and if you're looking for thrills and spills in the sun then this is the place to come. The site boasts a huge number of water slides, as well as more relaxing attractions such as the bubble pool and chill-out area.

Choose to get involved in a huge range of water sports, from windsurfing and scuba diving through to sailing and parascending. The area between Playa del Inglés and Maspalomas is regarded as a good spot for surfing. If you want to take in Maspalomas' beautiful scenery from the saddle, contact El Salobre Horse Riding to book a place on one of their treks.

Golfers will be in their element here thanks to the excellent choice of courses dotted around the local area. Maspalomas Golf offers the chance to play with the area's stunning sand dunes as a backdrop, while Lopesan Meloneras Golf is an 18-hole, par 71 course that has several of its holes situated directly along the coastline.
