Dunas de Maspalomas occupy a length of about 6 km and a width of about 2 km . The top height of the dunes is 10 – 20 m. They were formed by the ocean water brought by wind and sand (no, it does not come from the Sahara Desert). They are a part of a nature reserve which also includes the palm grove Palmeral and the pool la Charca. I saw only the sand dunes. They constitute the sea of golden sand and wandering through it is not easy at all. Yes, yes, despite the fact that the dunes are a part of a reserve you can walk through them, run and ride a camel, I also recommend also rollover. But you must know that climbing and descending these sandy embankments is tiring for our legs, especially since they are drowning in the scalding desert sand.

If the wind is intense it raises millions of particles in the air which – just like small pegs – hit the body and stick to the clothing (which is why I recommend wearing indoor shoes and a dark cape for a walk through the dunes, a white swimsuit is to be thrown away) . Despite these drawbacks, the dunes turned out to be an incredibly beautiful place for me. Maybe that’s why I sometimes felt like I was in the desert and it was a completely strange feeling to me.

And one more note – the dunes are one of the favorite destinations of gay and nudists, so do not be surprised if you pass every now and then some naked people, and perhaps you will want to experience the comprehensive solar bath yourself?
