The whole area is an enormous, exceptionally valuable natural space.

History
At first sight it reminds a dessert and you can just wander through the dunes until you come to the beach. At the end of Maspalomas there is an astonishing lighthouse.

The lighthouse light shone for the first time on 1st February 1890. It was the only construction at the end of a long strip of sand which started at what is now the Playa del Inglés and tailed off close to the Maspalomas Oasis. It helped to guide steamboats which covered routes between Europe, Africa and America.
Even if you are staying further away this is a MUST SEE beach!
