Maspalomas Nude Beach, Gran Canaria


Playa de Maspalomas, Gran Canaria - Official Nude Beach

Playa de Maspalomas Playa de Maspalomas is at the southern end of Gran Canaria near a large area of sand dunes. The sand is said to have blown in from the Sahara desert, as the west coast of Africa is not far away! However, it is more likely that the sand consists of eroded sea shells. These dunes look particularly beautiful after a windy day when all the footprints have been erased. Both the long beach and the sand dunes are used for nude sunbathing. See below for possible nude beach reports.

  1. The beach at Maspalomas is an official nude beach clearly signposted by the local council - well maintained & with beach bars (nude area is between kiosk 4 and kiosk 7). Despite the numbering they are next to each other!! Regards, Simon N (2010)

  2. We visited Maspalomas in October 2010. The weather was fantastic. The resort was quite quiet, but still plenty going on in the evenings at either nearby Playa del Ingles or the recently built Meloneras. The beach at Maspalomas runs from the Faro at Meloneras in the west to Playa del Ingles to the east some 5km away. The vast beach is backed by a massive dunes system. From Maspalomas it is about 2km to the beach - we had a courtesy bus down and usually walked back through the dunes to the Golf Course. Naturism is practiced over virtually the whole length of the beach excepting the resort 'ends'. It is also possible to be nude in the dunes, which get very hot. We were clothes free for 14 days and were able to walk miles nude, as were many other couples. There are sun bed areas with beach bars at various points on the beach. There is also a gay section in the centre part of the beach. There is also a lot of cruising (single males and couples) in parts of the dunes - so be aware. It is advisable to take an umbrella and beach tent, as sometimes the wind can pick up - welcome some days! The sea can also get rough with an undertow current, although we swam every day. Overall this is a superb beach with an excellent resort to provide entertainment. Don't miss the sunset at Meloneras. - H and S
