“BEAUTIFUL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

I traveled here for the first time yesterday on my day off work, planning to make a whole day of the visit with my photography equipment. I had so much fun climbing and sliding up and down the dunes which have such soft sand. The views are mind-blowing, you feel very close to nature.

Be very careful from about 11am because the sand becomes scorching hot and I guarantee you it'll burn your feet very bad as it did mine. I've attached some professional photos I took yesterday. I recommend it to every person on the island of Gran Canaria, and if you ain't here yet. Buy a plane ticket! It's worth the money just to experience a day like I did!

“Protected Land”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

Well worth the visit if you are in the area. A protected piece of natural land leading on to the Dune of Maspalomas. This is the closest thing you'll see without going to Egypt.

“Very good walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Very good walk around the Dunes. We walked right round from Playa Del Ingles to Maspalomas.
Dont be suprised or shocked as you are walking through a nudist / naturist area. Plenty or bar / cabins to get refreshments along the way

“long walk”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

it is a nice walk along the beach about 2 miles but make sure you put lots of suncream on before you go, there is nowhere to sit down other than at the bars so take a towel to sit on and beware of the african women trying to sell you bracelets at the beginning of the walk at maspalomas

“an unexpected sight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

A little bit of the Sahara in Gran Canaria- beautiful rolling dunes, exhausting to walk over but I had some great photos. The dunes go all the way to the edge of the sea. Well worth a look
