Playa del Ingles literally translates as ‘Englishmen’s Beach’, but do not let that put you off as it is far from a typical ‘Brits abroad’ location. Of course the stunning beaches and thumping nightlife attract many tourists, but there is also the beauty of the Maspalomas sand dunes to bask in, while the rest of the island is in easy access when you fancy a change of scenery. If ‘partying’ is your middle name then you will want to be pointed in the direction of the Yumbo Centrum, which caters for every taste under the sun. Playa del Ingles is also a gay-friendly part of Spain and hosts an annual gay pride festival, one of the largest in Europe, every May.
