Playa del Ingles Attractions
Famous for its wild nightlife and wide sandy beaches, there are plenty of things to enjoy on Playa del Ingles holidays. To find out more about this fantastic destination, check out our list of the top things to do in Playa del Ingles.
Hitting the Sand and Sea
The beach and the ocean encompass the attraction and thrill of Playa del Ingles holidays. You’ll find an immensely vibrant atmosphere on the seafront, and an equally active ethos out on the water. Besides chilling on the sand and topping up your tan, the beaches around the resort are awash with water sports opportunities. Climb on board for some windsurfing, feel the need for speed on a jet ski or splash along out of control on a good old banana boat ride. You can also enjoy the beautiful coastal scenery without taking to the water. The Paseo Costa Canaria is a superb scenic walking area which transports you along the coastal promenade, up and down inclines, but always exposing you to stunning views of the coast. You’ll find a number of hotels and apartments with equally appealing sea views, but nothing beats traversing a magical landscape on foot.
Keeping Things Adventurous
While it is easy to embark on holidays to Playa del Ingles in search of a sedate beach break, you’ll find that embracing the active and thrilling aspects of the area will help you create memories that span further than a beach towel on the sand. There are a number of things to do for families holidaying in the resort, ensuring that both parents and their kids will be occupied during their break. Head over to Aqualand, a fun and expansive water park which provides a great day out for the family, or alternatively pay a visit to Minigolf Atlantico to go head-to-head with each member of your family on the testing course! Just outside of the resort towards Maspalomas you’ll encounter some stunning sand dunes, known locally as La Dunas de Maspalomas. The landscape is stunning and transports you to a desert fantasy, though one with a sparkling ocean in the distance. A trip here will also allow you to explore the local resort, with its expansive beach, charming lighthouse and intriguing bird sanctuary. You’ll find even more action and adventure when the sun goes down – specifically embedded in the resort’s bustling nightlife scene. The resort is famous for its clubbing and is home to countless venues. The resort has also become famous for its gay-friendly club scene, and is one of the best destinations for gay tourists in the whole of Spain.
