You'll find plenty of places to visit near Maspalomas: Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Catedral de Santa Ana, Playa de Las Canteras, & more). There's lots more to do: visit a coastal fixture at El Faro de Maspalomas, browse the different shops at Yumbo Centrum, stroll through Playa de San Agustin, and kick back and relax at Playa de Mogan.

To see more things to do, maps, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Maspalomas vacation builder.
