Maspalomas from the air
The experience of flying over the south of the island and its spectacular beaches will definitely become an unforgettable memory of your journey to Gran Canaria.
There are several possibilities. You can choose between having a flight in a light aircraft or in a helicopter. From the Aeroclub Gran Canaria there are flights every day. In both cases you will fly over the south of the island and you will be able to see from the air the littoral of beaches, dunes and palm groves. It is an impressive landscape that is worth watching from a bird’s point of view. The zone is protected for its rich environmental values.
Another attractive option is parachuting. There are two clubs that provide parachuting from a light aircraft in order to make a flight over the sea and the coast. If you are an expert in this activity you can bring your own equipment or you can rent it, but you can also jump in tandem and without any previous experience.
Landings are over the sand close to the avenue, which lets you rest on the beach after experiencing what it feels like to fly, or to have an aperitif in one of the terraces facing the sea.
Good wind conditions make it possible for this activity to be made throughout the whole year.
