Insider's View

 by Liz Correal

Gran Canaria Insider Aqualand the island's biggest waterpark is tucked away at the back of the resort. It's miles from anywhere, but the bus service to it is good.

From a bird's eye view Maspalomas looks like a bit of the Sahara has dropped off Africa and floated over to rest on the coast of Gran Canara. Yes, you guessed it, its the sandy bit and there's even camels to make it more authentic.

The dune area is a natural park and one of Gran Canaria's iconic landmarks, though don't expect to see anything green. Apart from a few scrappy thorn bushes there's not much that grows on the sand. If you're brave enough have a camel ride. It's a hot, dusty and pretty smelly, but a fun way of seeing this protected area in a very original way.

Around the beach area and tying up with the start of Meloneras are the hotels which sprung up first. They're interspersed with tall, curving palm trees which gives the whole place a very shady,
tropical air.

The Oasis is a relaxing place to sit and do a bit of bird-watching. No, not the ones in bikinis, though there's plenty of those as well! It'll help you replenish your energy levels before struggling through the sand expanse. It really is like a mini-Sahara, my kids used to love climbing up and then rolling down the dunes. If you go adventuring, take plenty of water with you and a compass (only joking!).

In some places in Gran Canaria you'll struggle to find anything more exertive than sunbathing to wile away the hours, but Maspalomas has just about every recreational activity you could dream of. Aqualand the island's biggest waterpark is tucked away at the back of the resort. It's miles from anywhere, but the bus service to it is good. When you get tired of getting wet there's a small go-karting track right opposite which isn't too expensive.

Away from the sea front and further inland is the Barranco de Palmitos. Outdoor type restaurants, more typical of Majorca than the Canaries, line the winding, twisting d-road which leads down to the area's other main attraction, Palmitos Park. Yes, it's one of those roads where the potholes are more joined together than the tarmac, and what's left of that is breaking away at the edges in such a way that makes driving seriously entertaining.

Night time entertainment for the young centres around Holiday world. There's no point in trying to avoid it, the kids will spot the lights of the big wheel from miles away. Amusement-wise they'll have exhausted the rides in about half an hour so it doesn't work out too costly and if
you feel like sticking around and making a night of it, there are enough restaurants and bars to keep you busy for a while.

Maspalomas has grown steadily over the last ten years and covers a huge area. To find your way around you really need a route map, the problem is no-one seems to have got around to making one yet.
