Destination in brief

Maspalomas, this well-known holiday settlement, is located in the southeastern part of the island. Maspalomas has long merged with Playa del Ingles and Meloneras through fast developments. As a result, Maspalomas is predominantly visited by Western European retirees, digital nomads, and a few locals. Cinemas screen movies in English, and there are English-language group lessons in some gyms, all available in English.

Overall, it's a great vacation destination for families all year round, but digital nomads can also find an environment to suit their own needs here. You only have to drive to Las Palmas for more upscale events. Officially, the region's name is beautiful: San Bartolomé de Tirajana; this must also be selected for the QR code.

2021 update: unfortunately, because of the Covid, there are a lot of closed stores. Currently (October 2021), the open-air cinema is also closed; what a pity.
