Playa del Inglés
Playa del Inglés and the surrounding dunes of Maspalomas have been attracting millions of sun-chasing tourists since the resort was developed in the 1960s. Located on the southern coast of the island of Gran Canaria, Playa del Inglés is the most famous holiday destination (most notably the Northern European crowd) in the Canary Islands, and it’s not hard to see why, as the island receives roughly 320 days of sunshine and blue skies each year. Playa del Inglés is more than a beautiful Spain beach with great weather; it’s become one of Europe’s premiere clubbing destinations, where the party starts early in the day and continues well into the night.
