Luxury Maspalomas Holidays

Golden good looks

Maspalomas

One of Gran Canaria's original beach resorts, Maspalomas' golden good looks and tranquillity has kept it top of the list for sunseekers.

With its protected natural reserve and terracotta sand dunes straight out of the Sahara, the resort moves at more of a laid-back pace than the likes of neighbouring Playa del Ingles. There's a Blue Flag beach with fine, golden sand and palm trees, and a seafront promenade boasting the best entertainment picks - think local dining, popular bars and plenty of good shopping.

Families can head to Holiday World for some fairground action, or visit the ever-popular Aqualand Maspalomas - Gran Canaria's biggest water park, and home to a generous helping of slides and flumes. For parents, the 18-hole Maspalomas Golf Course is a real gem, featuring greens that come complete with views across the beach and rolling dunes.

When to go

Summers are long, hot and dry in Gran Canaria, keeping at a steady mid-20s and climbing beyond 30°C in July and August. The Canaries are a good destination for winter sun, too – even winter and the shoulder seasons stay warm and sunny, with averages hovering around 18°C.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.

Tipping

Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
