The basics

Most visitors to Playa del Inglés stay at a beachside resort or visit for the day from Las Palmas. The beach stretches from the towering resorts on the northern end to the Maspalomas Dunes Nature Reserve in the south. Near the resorts, you’ll find family-friendly services like umbrella rentals, restrooms, showers, and snack carts. As you head south toward the lighthouse, the beach can get a bit wilder with nude sunbathing areas, beach bars, and surf spots.
