Maspalomas is divided into three areas, one of which is perfect for families and the other two are perfect for nudism and gays. Not many problems to go from one part of the beach to another.

Address: Playa de Amadores Mogán, Gran Canaria
The first thing that strikes you about Puerto Mogan is its peace and quiet. In contrast to most places along Gran Canaria’s southern shores, this charm-filled resort operates at a delightfully calm pace that’ll have you de-stressed in no time. With picture-postcard looks that’ll whip your breath away, it’s sheltered by dramatic rocky cliffs and fronted by a lovely harbour and marina.
And both its old and new towns have much to offer. Enjoy a potter around the old town’s tangled alleyways and whitewashed cottages, which snake their way up steep hillsides. Then descend to the new town, where you’ll find the same village atmosphere. With a romantic canal spanned by Italianesque footbridges, it’s nicknamed Little Venice and has a maze of bougainvillea-draped streets crying out to be wandered around. Explorations over, Puerto Mogan’s palm-fringed harbourfront is ideal for relaxing in the sunshine.
Order some chilled wine and tapas and gaze out over the boat-flecked waters. And while you’re here, check out the amiable bars and restaurants to decide on the night’s venue for dinner and drinks. Summer evenings here are as laid-back as the days, so don’t expect pulsating nightlife. Duly refreshed, saunter along to the yacht-filled marina and then find the hushed Church of St. Andrew to view its ornate carvings and statues.
Or cast your net wider by hiring a jeep and discovering the hidden Gran Canaria of solitary coves, cacti-speared gorges and sparkling white villages perched on cindery rocks. And of course, don’t forget Puerto Mogan’s beach. A lovely crescent of dark volcanic sand kissed by bright blue seas and hot Canarian sun, it’s an absolute treat, whether you’re intent on sunbathing, swimming or even a session of sandcastle building.
