For years the Maspalomas dunes not only have been the quickest way to walk to the gay beach, but also have been a vast cruising ground for gay men. The dunes are busy all year round. What to get here? A huge diversity of shapes and sizes, nationalities and ages, most of them not wearing more then a smile on their face when they look at you. The best way to reach the dunes area is to enter through the Riu Palace Hotel at the head of the Avenida de Tirajana and simply follow the guys to the area between the hotel and the lighthouse (to your right).
