Maspalomas : Holiday Accommodation
Quieter than other resorts, Maspalomas offers the perfect mix of holiday diversions to satisfy those who want a bit of everything. Its first highlight is undoubtedly the beach, all six kilometres, stretching from the neighbouring sands of Playa del Ingles and finishing in a burst of Saharan-style splendour in a series of golden, rolling dunes. Roughly divided into sections for families and nudists, the main beach is a expanse of golden sand supplied with sunloungers. On the activities front there's plenty to entice you, from a laid-back waterfront lined with open-air cafes, restaurants and shops to some pleasant, low-key night-time entertainment centred around the hotels. There's also a variety of more energetic pursuits in the shape of an excellent 18-hole golf course, horse-riding and waterparks. And if you've ever fancied a spot of camel-riding, you can roam the dunes on board one of the hump-backed beasts.
