Playa del Ingles Holidays

Playa del Ingles

On the southernmost tip of Gran Canaria is Playa del ingles, one of the largest beach resorts in Spain, literally meaning ‘Englishman’s beach’. Holidays in Playa del Ingles are all about soaking up the warm summer sun and embracing the cool ocean breeze amid a lively atmosphere.


The town has a 3km-long beach, which runs parallel to an expansive promenade filled with restaurants, bars, nightclubs, shopping centres and souvenir shops. For beach lovers of every taste and budget, there is a lot of fun things to see and do during your Playa del Ingles holidays. You can shop to your heart’s content and grab fantastic discounts on branded clothes, accessories and local goods. The town’s clubs – buzzing with revellers – are famous for their dance-till-dawn parties.


 For more family-friendly activities head over to the nearby Aqualand water park at Maspalomas. For those interested in exploring the local way of life, there is Puerto de Mogan, a picturesque fishing village in the southwest corner of Gran Canaria.
