Maspalomas is a world of its own. Located in the south of Gran Canaria, the resort is a curious mix of sand dunes, salt marshes and luxury hotels. With its unspoilt beaches, crystal-clear waters and dramatic sunsets, it's easy to see why Maspalomas is a favourite with sun-seekers and nature lovers alike. The dunes, which reach up to 40 metres in height, are a spectacular sight, and offer a unique landscape in which to explore. If you're looking for a little more excitement, the resorts of Playa del Inglés and San Agustín are close by, offering a lively nightlife and plenty of options for shopping and dining.
