2. Parque Sur park in Maspalomas

One of the most important playgrounds on the island with a quite interesting extension that makes it a very attractive option to enjoy a picnic on its fresh lawn.

It’s also an ideal area for skateboarding or cycling lovers as it has lanes where you can walk and enjoy the park’s big central pond. It even has fun facilities for children that make it an excellent place to celebrate a birthday.

3. Maspalomas Dunes

Now it’s time for a natural monument like the Dunes of Maspalomas. The experience not only of seeing them from afar but also of enjoying a walk around them is something quite difficult to put in words.

It’s an ocean of golden sand with dunes up to 5 and 6 metres high where you can enjoy a fun moment with your children. Believe us when we tell you that they’ll remember it forever!

4. Anfi del Mar

Right between Arguineguín and Puerto Rico is Anfi del Mar, a tourist location characterised by its crystal clear waters and its white sandy beach where you can spend a day at the beach and the little ones can enjoy the calm waters.

Next to the beach is the famous "Heart Island", a small paradise next to the marina, ideal for a walk at the end of the day.

5. Amadores Beach

And finally, we couldn't forget Amadores beach! It's very similar to Anfi del Mar, but a little more open to the sea, although it also has calm waters ideal for the safety and enjoyment of the little ones.

Next to the beach, there's a very interesting gastronomic offer full of restaurants from different cultures, ideal to discover new flavours.

Without any doubt, the south of Gran Canaria is the best area to go with children. It's full of beaches, parks, services and a complete hotel offer. This area has something that the others do not have: the best climate of the island, where you can enjoy a summer climate all year round.
