Beaches in Maspalomas

Vast sandy stretches and beaches backed by buzzing promenades are all up for grabs on Maspalomas holidays.

  • Playa de Maspalomas is a natural choice for lazier days. Made up of 12 kilometres of soft golden sand, it leads on to the town’s trademark sand dunes.
  • Playa de las Meloneras is Maspalomas lesser-known beach. Swimming and sunbathing are the activities of choice. There’s a handful of places to eat along the shore, too.
  • If you want to go from beach to bar within minutes, Playa del Ingles is the one. It’s lined with popular hotels and restaurants, plus there are plenty of sunbeds for hire.
  • Playa de Amadores is a 15 minute drive west of Maspalomas in Puerto Rico and well-worth visiting if you’re keen to snorkel. Translating to “Lover’s Beach”, it’s postcard-perfect thanks to its white sand and crystal clear sea.
  • Sandwiched between Playa del Ingles and San Agustin, Playa de las Burras is a local favourite. It’s only 300 metres wide, but blessed with soft sand and water that’s usually calm enough to swim in.
Quiet beaches in Maspalomas

Quiet beaches in Maspalomas

While you’ll have no trouble finding somewhere secluded on huge Playa de Maspalomas, there are a few other tranquil coves worth having on your radar.

  • Accessed down a rough pebbled path, Playa Besudo is perfect for a little peace and quiet. It features the Canary Islands’ iconic black sand and is only 15 minutes by car from Maspalomas.
  • Playa del Aguila sits just beyond Playa Besudo and is a very scenic spot for a relax and a swim. One end features hotels and a shopping complex with a supermarket and restaurant for when you’re feeling peckish.
  • Playa Lomo Galeon is another beautiful spot on the way to Puerto Rico. It’s one of the island’s few pebbled beaches. Reached via a steep path from the road above, it’s untouched and usually deserted.
  • Also located on the road to Puerto Rico, Playa Montana Arena is a sleepy spot. Due to its total seclusion, it’s often a prime beach for nudists.
  • For a balance between convenience and calm on your Maspalomas holiday, visit Playa de San Agustin. It’s the main beach of sleepy San Agustin and just down the coast from Maspalomas.
