Exploring Gran Canaria

Villas Blancas is situated in the Campo de Golf area of Maspalomas and is within easy walking distance of the striking sand dunes and world famous gay beach. The up-market shopping areas, bars and restaurants of Meloneras are also close by.

Gay Beach and Sand Dunes

The famous Maspalomas gay beach sand dunes are an easy 20 minute walk from Villas Blancas. The sand dunes can also be reached from the centre of Playa del Inglés at the bottom of the Avenida de Tirajana. The time taken to cross the sand dunes to the gay beach on foot depends on what you encounter on the way there!

In addition to duty free allowances, shopping on Gran Canaria is often cheaper than elsewhere due to lower taxes. It’s worth hunting for bargains!
