No high rises this end of Maspalomas. Lovely park and plenty of green areas

There is a great park in this part of Maspalomas which has plenty to do for those who want to sit bythe river and read a book. Climb the artificial mountain. Children have a lovely play area and children's restaurant and picnic area. A short taxi ride to playa de faro - Melonares - brings you to beautiful shops both designer and boutique and an amazing beach with a promenade of restaurants with beautiful canarian food and wonderful fresh fish.

Holiday Heaven

The best thing about Maspalomas is that it is perfect for everybody. It´s quieter than Playa del Ingles & it´s more central than Puerto Rico. If you like staying by the pool or going to the beach the beaches are excellent. If you prefer doing a bit of sightseeing, it´s perfect - there are buses that go in both directions - north & south, and if you prefer renting a car, you are just a minute from the motorway to take you anywhere you would like to go.

Sun almost all year round. I was there in mid November and it was sunny and 27 degrees. Always windy (I suggest a small windbreak if you plan to be on the very nice sandy beaches). Nightlife in Playa del Inglés is absolutely great.

Great beach and nightlife holiday destination

I've been there 10 times and will go back. The beaches are stunning and huge (altho the ocean has taken away some last winter, apparently). Think Sahara sand meets water. It's great. The weather is absolutely perfect. Not too hot (max 30° C) and windy. Nightlife is great. Starts a bit late, being Spain after all, but great for singles and couples alike. Not sure families would want to hang around the Yumbo Centre (Playa del Inglés) tho :-)
