Dunas de Maspalomas

dunas de maspalomas

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 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.

We were taken from our hotel to the dive bas in Taurito by a minibus. You go straight from the beach into the water there (which is why even people who cannot swim can try scuba diving).

The historic tenement houses, lack of high hotels, and very climatic restaurants and cafes around the marina – all of this make Puerto de Mogan has its own unique atmosphere and has earned the name „Canarian Venice”
