Dunas de Maspalomas
In 1994 these fabulous dunes were designated a national park. The best view of them is from the bottom of Avenida Tirjana. Stroll through the arches of the Hotel Riu Palace Maspalomas to the balcony, which is surrounded by a botanical garden displaying many shrubs and plants native to the Canaries. There is a small information office here with sporadic opening hours.
