Playa del Ingles holidays turn up the volume, blending a trendsetting party scene with shining beaches and popular watering holes.

Beachfronts worth boasting about

Playa del Ingles has picked a prime spot on Gran Canaria’s southern coast, and it’s lined from top-to-bottom with silky beaches. Mix this together with averages of 25oC summer weather, and the platter of watersports available, and you’ll find a top-notch recipe for some of the best beach holidays in the Canary Islands.

Nightlife in Playa del Ingles

The clubbing scene around town goes to new heights, making it a hotspot for travellers and partygoers from all over Europe. Think beachfront bars next door to clubs and discos that keep the music going until the early hours. They’re easy to find, too. There’s a place to get your groove on at the end of most streets.


Daytrippers are spoilt for choice when staying in Playa del Ingles. The centre of Maspalomas, a larger nearby town, is a speedy five-minute drive away. It’s home to a selection of classy golf courses and an adrenaline-pumping amusement park. A little further south, you’ve got the El Oasis sand dunes – a bite-sized version of the Sahara Desert that’s the perfect place for quadbiking.
