Dunes of Maspalomas in Gran Canaria, Spain

 
 

Dunes of Maspalomas (Dunas de Maspalomas) is a nature reserve situated between Maspalomas and Playa del Inglés, on the south of Gran Canaria.

It is one of the most popular tourist attraction and one of the most popular places to see in Gran Canaria with its spectacular sandy peaks by the beach. It is the most unique natural formation in Gran Canaria, a 4,5 square km. sand desert. A must see.

The sand has been blown to the area from the Sahara Desert where it is 250 km. away from the island. The dunes appear different during the day time due to the wind blow.

Visitors enjoy walking at the dunes, taking photos, enjoying the sea, sunbathing and lying on the sand. One of the best things to do in Gran Canaria.

There are also luxury hotels by the east end of the area.
