Maspalomas is the oldest tourist town in the south of Gran Canaria and is right next door to Playa del Ingles. There are plenty of excellent Gran Canaria hotels in Maspalomas as well as 12 km of beach and sand dunes, some of which you can see in this photo taken from the viewpoint at the Riu Palace.
The most southerly point of the beach is the El Faro de Maspalomas lighthouse; at 68m tall it is one of the most striking attractions in the area. Despite being a very old town, this is very much a tourist area and there is an abundance of hotels, bars, shops and restaurants in which to spend your time.
The beach is large and expansive and has plenty of room for everyone.
