Holidays in Playa del Ingles are all about beach days and neon nights. Gran Canaria's biggest resort, it's sun, sea and sand all the way. And no wonder – the beach melts into the wind-sculpted dunes of Maspalomas which look as if they've been plucked from the set of Lawrence of Arabia. It's the ultimate beach holiday alright, but what else is there?
Looking for a bargain? Summer holidays to Gran Canaria are a shopaholic's dream. From Playa del Ingles, it's only 25 minutes' drive to the capital Las Palmas. Think boutiques. Designer names. And all your high street favourites. Closer to home, Playa del Ingles has plenty of cheap and cheerful shops where you'll find those last minute essentials. But if you're looking for a new pair of shades, a digital camera or some perfume, make a beeline for the shopping centres Yumbo and the Kasbah. They're also the hottest nightspots in town.
As well as shops, they're bursting with restaurants, bars and discos. After all, if you're looking for party-packed holidays in Gran Canaria, travel to Playa del Ingles.

This was not our first visit to Gran Canaria and like the other times we had a ball. The majority of Spanish workers are very friendly and helpful. The weather cannot be beaten, with a lovely average temperature. Enjoy all the Yumbo CC has to offer... more on this review
