Luxury Maspalomas Holidays

Golden good looks


Nestled on the southern tip of Gran Canaria, holidays in Maspalomas are ideal for those who like to explore, or spend days relaxing on the beach. The main attraction is the six kilometre stretch of beach, which is lapped by the clear waters of the Atlantic and backed by golden rolling dunes. The town itself is home to some excellent restaurants, bars, cafés, and shops, and has a lively atmosphere which is perfect for couples and families.

If you’re looking for lively fun and activities, neighbouring Playa del Ingles has lots of shops, restaurants, and a few bars and clubs. Alternatively, take the family to nearby Aqualand, which is full of water slides and rides, or Sioux City, which is a Wild West themed park. If you want to explore the dunes, there are 4x4 trips, camel rides, and lots more available, as well as the chance to see the unique flora, fauna, and animals in this desert like terrain.

Luxury holidays in Maspalomas

Maspalomas is known to be one of the quieter resorts on the island, and offers plenty of opportunities to relax. Here you’ll find some of the best restaurants on the island, as well as designer boutiques where you can pick up unique gifts, clothes, accessories, and souvenirs. And luxury holidays to Maspalomas wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the iconic El Faro de Maspalomas, a 68-metre lighthouse overlooking the beach. Surrounded by pretty gardens and overlooking a seafront boulevard with designer shops, luxury restaurants, and bars, it’s ideal for a day out.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Gran Canaria is approximately 4 hours 15 minutes. 

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Las Palmas airport to Maspalomas is approximately 30 minutes.

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.


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.
