Destination: Spain, Spain – Canary Islands, Gran Canaria
Travel time (from): 7 days
Gran Canaria. The island with the most surprising landscapes of the Spanish islands. The weather is very pleasant all year round, making this a popular destination in winter as well.
As of May 3, 2023 availability. January through April 2023 fully booked!
July 1 to 28, 2023 Magnolias Natura will be closed due to maintenance work.
Magnolias Natura is located in the south and is a popular destination every year because of its attractive swimming pool with terrace.
Magnolias Natura was built in the late 80s and was then called Magnolias Golf. This property has 28 residences in 3 rows with the pool and restaurant in the middle. The complex is very small, which exudes a cozy atmosphere.
The houses are semi-detached and the terrace is separated by a wall, so that you have more privacy. It is not very remote unlike most other naturist complexes. It is located on a one way road in Maspalomas, close to the Maspalomas golf course. It is about a 35 minute drive from Las Palmas airport.
Gran Canaria. The island with the most surprising landscapes of the Spanish islands. One moment you are driving through a small mountain range and a few kilometers further through a mini desert. As a result, there are also many different vegetation present on the island. All this has earned Gran Canaria the nickname “Miniature Continent”.
In the south of Gran Canaria there are two large cities; Playa de Ingles and Maspalomas.
Playa del lglés is the most touristy town on the island. Mostly high-rise buildings are found here. High-rise buildings are not allowed in Maspalomas, which means that there are more apartment complexes.
The distance to the nearest major shopping centers with many choices of restaurants and other entertainment is a 15 minute walk. The beautiful wide sandy beach of Maspalomas is about a 35 minute walk and then another 500 meters across the beach to the left, to the official nudist beach. There is also a regular bus every day from Magnolias Natura that comes close to the beach. The beach is very wide and it slopes quite slowly into the sea.
If you want to see more of the island, which is definitely worth it, it is recommended to take a rental car. For sports enthusiasts it is possible to rent a bicycle. The road to the beach is quiet and partly car-free.
Magnolias Natura is not suitable for children, because there is nothing for them to do. July and August are the quietest months in the Canary Islands.
