If you're after an experience that's a little different, then sand boarding is for you. It's said to be a lot like surfing, but a little easier, so grab a board and head for the massive sand banks to make memories that last a lifetime. The Dunas de Maspalomas are located just along the coast and the area is a designated nature reserve. The massive sand dunes are stunning to look at and even more incredible to ride down their extreme, sloped peaks. Learn new skills from an excellent teacher at the PRO Surfing Company, who provides a full day suitable for any ability and even take a photographer with them to capture you gliding down the sand bank. If you prefer a calmer experience at Dunas de Maspalomas and don't want to tackle the wilderness on foot, then there are opportunities to take a Camel Safari over the massive sandy hills to give you a taste of the Sahara.
