Stunning scenery, highly recommend the camel ride through the dunes, fun for all but get there early (between 9 & 10am) as it gets booked up quickly. £12 euros for an adult & £8 for a child. It's very hot so take water !!

This beach is huge and as a result just a bit too exposed for me. spotlessly clean though. plenty of restaurants very close by and the sea is just rough enough to have some fun in the waves.

fun to climb the dunes and lovely beach ample space. Watch out for the nudist area of the beach. No share on the beach unless you have a bed hired. Can get very busy.

This is a lovely area of the island and a pleasant walk at the right time of day from Meloneras to Maspalomas. However be prepared for the other Natural views! The nudists! But a lovely Beach.

Awesome beach clear water. Near a protected area with dunes. Not crowded. Sand is so smooth, you can rent Sun bed and umbrellas.

Beautiful beach, take your flip flops as the sand gets very very hot, you can walk to the dunes from the beach, hire a sunbed or walk hand in hand in the water. Would defo recommend.
