As far as beaches go this was one of my favourites. Mikes upon miles of sand and beautiful sea. Loved the sand dunes, and places to get ice creams and coffees. Great day out for all the family.

lovely smooth sandy beach with a long slope into the sea so no quick drop into the water. The beach is very long but does have kiosks along the way for a rest and a cold beer or ice cream. The people we met at...More

The wind was a bit extreme on one of the days. but otherwise this was a lovely sandy beach to spend some quality sun bathing time on. I went a bit further onto the beach, away from the masses, towards the nudist sections, where the...More

Came here and really enjoyed the beach. One of the best in Gran Canaria. The dunes are beautiful and worth a hike up and down. Deck chairs are EUR 2.50 each and umbrella EUR 2.50

The gay section of the beach at Hut 7 seems to have disappeared. Very disappointed to find the beach in a right mess

If you like a white sandy beach with huge dunes this is the place to go. Dotted with refreshment huts it is perfect day to do nothing.

We couldn't wait to walk from our hotel to this famous beach in Gran Canaria. Our journey began on the far East where a delicious ice cream seemed mandatory. There were many bars , restaurants and shops en route towards the western part of this...More

A very large beach with fine sand and an ocean that attracts you and at the same time calms you. In the back the dunes look at you.

Lovely plaza and boulevard with restaurants and shops. Beach is spotless and very popular however go too far and expect nudists. Didn't bother me but not to all tastes. Do the whole walk and it's about 90 mins and only 3€ taxi back. Beautiful spot!

Dear BigBrian 11" Together with my none-swinger Husband, I'll be in Gran Canaria for just one day from a cruise ship moored in Las Palmas. It would be wonderful for me if I could attend a swing area just for the time the ship is anchored, from after breakfast to before dinner. My husband is a Doctor & not a swinger but tolerates my swinging. Where would you advise I go to in order to meet men looking for women of easy virtue, such as me? I've looked at a couple of Swingers resorts in Maspalomas but not sure how much action may be available, during the daytime in those. Maybe most PLAY is in the evening & I will have left to return to the ship by then. Would you advise just getting a Taxi to the Nudist Beeech at Maspalomas and sunbath naked to attract attention, or is that a true Naturist beach where swinging is frowned upon? In short where I am most likely to be approached by urbane men? In a Swing Club/Resort, or just in the Sand Dunes; please advise. My complete details are available at the free Web site: Fabswingers UK Belle-de-Nuit
