Big and buzzing Playa del Inglés in Gran Canaria is one of the island's oldest party resorts, pulling in visitors since the 1960s to make the most of its gorgeous beaches and nightlife. There’s plenty of room for everyone, with 3km of golden sand backing into a colourful waterfront with top bars, pubs and shops, and the resort’s best hotels close by. 

It  has the ideal holiday location on Gran Canaria’s south coast, situated close to nearby water parks and sport centres. Known in English as 'Englishman's Beach', it's very popular with English-speaking tourists, and offers some of the most cosmopolitan nightlife in the Canary Islands.

Things to do

Go on an unforgettable scuba diving adventure and see the stunning marine life of the Canaries during your Playa del Inglés holidays, or explore the busy market of Puerto de Mogán, Gran Canaria's very own 'little Venice'. If you love a bit of shopping, don't forget to visit the Yumbo Centrum in Maspalomas, where you'll find over 200 shops, restaurants and bars.

Head further afield to the striking volcanic rock known as Roque Nublo, which dates back over four million years and was an ancient place of worship. Or go on a day excursion to Las Palmas, the capital of Gran Canaria, and see its enchanting cathedral and museums where you can learn all about the history of the island and the discovery of the New World.
