How to get to the gay beach in Maspalomas!
To get there take a taxi to Plaza del Faro then walk east until you come to ‘Spot No. 7’ The gay beach can be reached by a 10 minute walk from the Maspalomas lighthouse or via a 20 minute walk via the dunes from the Riu hotel in Playa del Ingles
The main entrance is at the Hotel Riu Palace, the beginning of the Avenida de Tirajana. If you’ve come by car you can park free at the Avenida de Gran Canaria. In the center of the hotel you will see a public access gallery, with shops on either side. Walk though and you will see the view of the dunes ahead with the forest in the background. The view is stunning.
A lot of the cruising takes place from around 4pm onwards as guys make their way from the beach. However you can find people there all the time!
The Nature Reserve of Dunas de Maspalomas is enormous. There are several areas, and some of them are busy at certain times of the day. Follow the red-topped posts which lead to the gay area. Blue-topped posts lead to a gay cruising area. There are kiosks where you can buy cold drinks along the way. Tip: get out before nightfall if you don’t want to feel you’re being eaten alive by sand fleas.
