Dunes of Maspalomas

79 reviews of Dunes of Maspalomas

A Little Sahara in Gran Canaria

Excellent

Experience the sensation of being lost in the middle of a sandy desert. In the same municipality of San Bartolomé de Tirajana, south of the island of Gran Canaria, in Maspalomas, there is one of the most curious places I’ve ever been to: a little desert between a town and the sea. It is easily accessible and a must visit if you are in the area.

Let yourself be surprised by the ever changing dunes, let the sand caress you and feel the breeze of the sea next to you. You can walk through them from the coast towards the interior, with the tranquility of having on one side the Atlantic and on the other the buildings. If you walk for a while you will feel as if you were in the desert.

Changing Forms

Even though the pictures don’t do justice to the place, the Maspalomas Dunes is one of the magical places of the archipelago.

These dunes, together with “El Charco” and “El Palmeral” form part of the Maspalomas Delta, that was declared place of Natural Interest in 1987 and it is now a Special Natural Reserve.

The walk through the dunes starts in the Inglés Beach, all the way towards the western area to finish in La Charca and the banks of the Barranco de Fataga.

During the walk you can see the changing forms depending on the wind, so every day the view is different.
