One of the most popular tourist destinations in the Canary Islands, the scenic grace of Maspalomas, with its white, sandy beaches, dessert-like dunes and azure sea is perfectly contrasted against the rocky peaks that rise towards the centre of Gran Canaria. Relaxation and enjoyment are the focal points of this coastal gem and holidaymakers wanting to escape to their own place in the sun, are sure to find it here. Stretching across the four beaches of Aguila, San Agustin, Las Burras and the more famous Playa del Ingles, there are plenty of square metres of sand for you to lounge on, and if you are seeking more than just relaxation, then there are numerous water sports activities to embark upon at your own leisure. Have a stab at wind- or kite-surfing, or go jet-skiing for an energy-laden activity. If you prefer land-based adventures, then look no further than to the array of theme parks and sights that abound in the area. Spend a day experiencing the exotic birds, the wildlife and the dolphins in Palmitos Park, or explore the ancient history of the island at Mundo Aborigen. Both places are located in the mountainous region inland, and nearby you can find the viewing platform of Degollada de La Yegua, from where you can gaze across the beautiful rural landscape of the island. For an experience that is quite different to what you might expect from Gran Canaria, head to the Sioux City Park, which is a Wild West theme park, set in the middle of Canary Islands. Expect cowboys, bison and choreographed shows of horsemanship, shootouts and saloon brawls. Back in Maspalomas, you can amuse yourself at Holiday World, or head for the more serene surroundings near the lighthouse and the adjacent landscape of rolling dunes. As the sun slowly sets over the island, the city really comes alive. The bars and restaurants of Maspalomas are open to everyone and you can choose to either go for a splendid meal, enjoy the atmosphere around the resorts or dive head first into the vibrant nightlife of the city.
