It’s not hard to understand why so many people choose to return to Gran Canaria. In addition to a pleasant year-round climate, the island also features fine beaches, comfortable hotels, a great variety of shopping, a wide choice of restaurants and nightlife, as well as excellent golf courses. The island also offers the undulating sand dunes of Maspalomas, the golf courses of Costa Meloneras and the big city bustle of Las Palmas.
At the western end of Playa del Inglés lies the town of Maspalomas, which is also a lively town with a fine promenade, several green squares and parks, as well as a great selection of eateries, cafés, shops and attractions. A visit to the 10-kilometre long and gigantic sand dune, Dunas de Maspalomas, stretching over 4 km2, is a mini-version of the Sahara. Here you can hike or ride a camel in a very beautiful and constantly changing landscape. Outside Maspalomas you will also find the best golf course on the island.
