Maspalomas is another popular Las Palmas holiday resort and is located in the south of Gran Canaria. The area differs in the overall picture from the other regions because the hotels and houses here were mainly built in width instead of height. The dunes of Maspalomas are world-famous and are one of the unique natural experiences that you can enjoy here. They extend for around six kilometers from Maspalomas to Playa del Ingles. The dunes offer a beautiful backdrop for great vacation photos. The region is particularly popular with holidaymakers who spend the winter in Gran Canaria.
