Playa del Ingles

Playa del Ingles is Gran Canaria’s largest resort, and boasts being the second largest resort of its kind in Europe (Benidorm being number 1). 

It’s an ideal resort for you if you’re traveling with a group of friends perhaps, or a couple looking for plenty of action by night after topping up your tan during the day. During the high season of July and August it’s very much the location for “younger fun” or “18-30” style holidays. For the rest of the year it proves popular with a very varied group, from 8 to 80, and many different nationalities.

Once at the beach, you will find a variety of water-based activities on offer. Paragliding, jet skiing, banana boat rides, and pedalo hire. The beaches do tend to be quite split, with areas invisibly cordoned for families, naturists, too-shy to bare-all, gay and adult only groups. Do take a picnic with you though, as the beach doesn’t offer much in the way of refreshments.

Playa del Ingles itself is fairly flat, and easy to get around. Public transport here is frequent, and of good quality. It is flanked by the areas of Maspalomas and San Agustin. 

There are around a dozen Commercial Centres in and around Playa del Ingles… each playing host to a wide range of restaurants, bars and shops. There are also many other services such as banks, supermarkets, money exchange bureau’s, amusement arcades. Head to the Kasbah centre for a wider choice of clubs, or perhaps the Yumbo centre for the gay scene. All in all, a rocking time for any visitor!
