The popular resort of Maspalomas is made up of high-class hotels and luxury accommodation adjacent to the bustling resort of Playa del Ingles. Flanked by a huge expanse of sand dunes, the resort is home to a six kilometre stretch of golden sands. Along the sea front promenade visitors will find a large range of shops, bars and restaurants serving up tasty Spanish cuisine. Away from the beach there are many opportunities for days away such as a visit to the aquarium, golf course or theme park which is an ideal day out for all the family. For a little taste of Gran Canaria's past, the 19th century Faro de Maspalomas lighthouse is worth a visit and is still in use today. Maspalomas is a resort which has something for everyone and its warm climate makes it ideal for holidays all year round.
