Our pets are not habituated to a full day exposure to the sun and certainly not to the hot sands of the beach. Protect not only yourself but also think about the animals. On the beach of Santa Maria de Guia should also spot a surf school.

Protection from the sun with an umbrella

I advise you to rent a parasol or definitely use. It is not the first accident that I see happening by burning, sunstroke or heatstroke. Every year tourists decease by maladaptive sunbathing. Protection by an umbrella, sunscreen is highly recommended.

The beaches are along the entire length every day, both morning and evening very well maintained by the municipal services. At some point you reach “Punta de Maspalomas”, this is the division between Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles. Not so special but at this point there are small flocks of fish swimming around already come nibble quickly at your feets.

Yes indeed nibble. These little fish massaging your feet and clean the dead skin on hands and feet.

Themselves but It definitely feels pleasant.

The beach area between Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas is also suitable in high winds for board surfers and kite surfing. The water temperature of the sea become quite pleasant from late May to October. I do not know if it’s the same with you, but I prefer swimming in the sea above a pool at the hotel. It has its charm thanks to the playful waves that you ever challenge again.

It’s a crazy game of sand and waves, inviting regularly raging sea to a battle between man and nature. Lifted by the wind scours the sand as a scrub down your body
