    Ten reasons to come back

    Maspalomas lighthouse is located in the south of Gran Canaria, in the heart of one of the most visited coasts in Europe.

    Maspalomas, Playa del Inglés and Meloneras offer a wide range of hotels and apartments, great daytime activities and an exciting nightlife in the beach area.

    But Maspalomas is known not only for its wide-spread dunes and its good climate, but also for its ancient lighthouse, which saw the arrival of the first tourists and the transformation of this area into a holiday destination. Because ever since the first traveler realized that good weather was the norm for this five-kilometer beach, Maspalomas Lighthouse has witnessed thousands of days of sunshine, honeymoons and walks by the sea.

    The decision to build it was made in 1861. The work continued for 28 long years. Until then, this place was uninhabited, with no connection to the rest of the island. For the construction of a 55-meter lighthouse, a pier was built to unload building materials that could only be delivered by sea.

    The light on the lighthouse was lit in 1890. It showed the way to ships that sailed along the routes between Europe and America. It was the only building on a long line of sand that began where Playa del Inglés is now located and ended near the Oasis of Maspalomas.

    Everything has changed today. Now a crowded pedestrian zone begins here, a great place to shop, stop for dinner or just sit in a bar, admiring the long line of the beach and the sea.

    Not far from the boulevard on the sand are vacationers, here begins the Natural Reserve, which includes the dunes of Maspalomas. It consists of three ecosystems: the Palm Grove (el Palmeral), the Lake (la Charca) and the Dunes (las Dunas), which are located a few meters from the sea. All this space is a huge natural area of ​​exceptional value.

    Three steps from the Palm Grove of Maspalomas, there is a protected area around the Lake, where the sea and sand do not fit, and which is a resting place for birds migrating to Africa. Near the Lake, dunes begin, constantly changing their shape under the influence of wind from the ocean.

    If you walk from the Lighthouse towards the dunes along the sea, you will reach the end of Maspalomas, which connects to the beach of Playa del Inglés. In fact, this is still the same beach, which, starting from this place, changes its name. Walking along it from end to end very soon becomes a daily wellness exercise for vacationers.

    The beach has deserted isolated areas where nudism is practiced. If you go from Maspalomas Lighthouse to Playa del Inglés, the nudist area is between the third and fourth beach bars. From Playa del Inglés to Maspalomas Lighthouse, between fifth and sixth.

    Surfers, in turn, have their own meeting point in the bend that separates Maspalomas and Playa del Inglés.
