Holidays in
Playa del Ingles

Sun-drenched days and party nights

Everyone comes to Playa del Ingles for the beach – it is, quite simply, enormous. With 3 kilometres of beautiful golden sands, whether you’re here to enjoy some family fun splashing in the sea, or will be sleeping off a hangover under an umbrella with a book, Playa del Ingles holidays will definitely float your boat. Or lilo. There are more than 10 commercial centres, as well as smaller souvenir and fashion boutiques, so you can enjoy shopping for designer brands, electronics bargains and duty-frees in the bustling town.

Head to the Plaza, Yumbo or Kasbah to get your fix. At the end of a lazy, sun-drenched day, enjoy a meal at one of Playa del Ingles’ many popular restaurants, before taking a wander along the Paseo Costa Canaria coastal path, which follows the shoreline above the beach and leads all the way to Maspalomas. Enjoy the scenery, browse the souvenir shops or stop at a bar for a digestif of Canarian honey rum – holidays to Playa del Ingles have everything you could want for a chilled-out getaway.
