Located on the southernmost tip of Gran Canaria, the tourist town of Maspalomas is one of the most popular holiday destinations on the island. Quieter and considerably more sophisticated than its lively neighbour Playa del Ingles, Maspalomas has a distinctly upmarket feel, with its chic restaurants and cocktail bars and wide sweep of golden sand backed by towering desert sand dunes.
The perfect hideaway for couples or families, Maspalomas offers something to keep everyone entertained. From water sports to world class golf, historic monuments to theme parks; whatever you’re looking to get out of your holiday, you can probably find in Maspalomas.
Being so close to the coast of Africa, Gran Canaria’s southern coast has its own microclimate which ensures almost 365 days a year of temperate, sub-tropical sunshine. Because of this, there is generally is no bad time to visit, although high season in Maspalomas can see temperatures soar between June and August. Sweeping breezes from the Sahara desert can help you keep your cool on the beach, or why not indulge in a refreshing cocktail? What are holidays for!
