There is a walkway on the sea front from San Agustin to Maspalomas which is very pleasant with plenty of bars and restaurants

This resort is very peaceful, with not a lot to do, but the people are very friendly and helpful and the weather was very good.

A much quieter beach than Playa Del Ingles... Sun loungers are €3.50.Nice cafes along the seafront and just a short walk from the main shopping centre

A nice quieter resort down the promonade from a far busier resort. This resort will actually suit lots of people because of the vast beaches, plenty of water sport activity and close proximity to the hotels. Nice little Shopping Arcade full of plenty of gift...More

Busy beach. Busy place. Avoid timeshare touts . Water sports jet ski and banana boats are good . Lots of places for snacks or drink and the market has loads of cheap merchandise.

Had a lovely couple of days here, and a lovely shallow slope into the water, but please be aware that the waves are really quite big, and I wouldn't advise on taking any inflatables, as the current is too strong.

Nice beach, dark(volcanic rock sand) so it made people playing in the sand look muddy which was funny. most of the time the ocean was very smooth.

It is a mix of golden Saharan sand and black volcanic sand. I personally think it looks nice, it is however very very hot when dry and in full sun so I would recommend sandals
