Playa del Ingles

Playa del Ingles Travel Guide

'The Englishman's beach' is how Playa del Ingles translates; those naming the holiday resort had great foresight as today thousands of Brits flock here for sun, sea and San Miguels. Situated in the south of Gran Canaria, the resort is one of the largest and busiest in Europe and its main attraction is the wide sandy beach that stretches from the Maspalomas dunes to San Agustin in the north. The Playa del Ingles seafront is lined by a lovely pedestrian promenade, the Paseo Costa Canaria, planted with lush gardens. With its conglomeration of high-rise hotels, apartment blocks and shopping malls, Playa del Ingles will not win any awards for architecture or sophisticated ambience, but the ever-growing holiday resort, purpose-built for pleasure and leisure back in the 1960s, is hard to beat for good value summer fun. Although mainly geared towards the younger market, families and older visitors are also attracted to Playa del Ingles by the glorious year-round climate and endless beach. Those who want to avoid all the hubbub can find quieter spots on the long, spacious beach, and should be sure to get accommodation well away from the party centre.
