Holidays to Maspalomas offer the opportunity for a wonderful sunny break, whatever the time of year...
It's not hard to see why, nearly half a century ago, Maspalomas became Gran Canaria's first tourist town - the fine, four-mile-long beach is a huge draw in its own right. But despite luring travellers as an established resort for the last 40 years, time has not dulled the shine on this Canary Islands jewel.
For those seeking relaxation, the beach stretches out almost as far as the eye can see, with lots of space for sunbathing and water sports such as windsurfing, snorkelling and parasailing. Away from the sun-baked shore, the town of Maspalomas is crammed with venues offering everything from sleepy lunches with a quiet glass of wine and some tapas to rowdy karaoke and pumping dance music.
Maspalomas has developed a knack for satisfying every need, but as always in Spain, family comes first. Children of any age will be welcomed at all restaurants, and the resort has a wealth of activities especially designed for youngsters. For grown-ups, meanwhile, there are shopping arcades at every turn to complement the myriad pleasures described above.
