Playa del Ingles (“British beach”) is the heart of Maspalomas.
It is a tourist city in the shape of a triangle consisting only of hotels, restaurants, discos and shops. In the early 20th century, this place was chosen by reckless British sailors, which determined the future name of the resort, but also its rhythm.
Playa del Ingles is not a place for those who are tired of life. After all, the life here is in full swing day and night. In summer the resort is particularly popular with European young people aged 18 to 30. However, to position Playa del Ingles as just for the youth crowd would be incorrect as over-30s will find plenty of entertainment for themselves here.
