Maspalomas and Playa Del Ingles

Maspalomas and nearby Playa Del Ingles in Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands, Spain are possibly the kinkiest and most hardcore sex tourist holiday locations after 1990s Thailand.

At the centre of it all is a three-mile-long beach with even more expanse of sand dunes – ideal for catching a cooling breeze and spying on the naked bodies below – and patches of shrubbery and handy stone circle shelters for seriously exhibitionist sunbathing, or presenting yourself or your partner for passing fellatio or al-fresco banging.

Dogging, swinging, voyeurism, open air sex, gang-bangs, gay saunas and clubs, cruising and stranger sex all goes on, completely tolerated, in a hedonistic BDSM edged, fetish fantasy land. The sub tropical climate, great hotels and awesome restaurants make it the perfect kinky vacation location. There’s also an annual Maspalomas Pride and a fetish week held each year in October.

It all happens in the vast expanse of Sahara like sand. Police patrol the dunes, but only to deter thieves. They won’t bat an eyelid at rampant rumpy-pumpy in the shrubbery. Some have even been rumored to join in. The area is popular with all nationalities, particularly German, Danish, Swedish, Italian, English, Americans, Australians and Spanish. Every sexuality seems to find a corner of the dunes, with particular areas popular with swingers, voyeurs, hot local twinks, mature master types and couples. It’s not uncommon to stumble upon thrusting multilingual multisexual gangbangs and lone men with large cocks often perch on top of the big dunes wagging their junk at anything or anyone they’d like to suck, penetrate or otherwise occupy. Swinging couples lie in shady valleys jiggling tits at preferred threesome targets and sub/bottom gay men perch in luminous pop-up tents exposing their pert arses to passing cock. Bondage gear is often openly worn – leather cock accessories, harnesses, and even pony play has been observed. Personally. It goes without saying that in Maspalomas there are water sports in the water and in the dunes.

Mobile phone signal and GPS is really good – so all your Apple and Android cruising, dogging and swinging apps will work to within 20 metres! Grindr and Recon become heat-seeking GPS displays in the dunes and the Yumbo center. If in doubt, buy an Orange.es sim card from a phone shop when you arrive, for 4g in the dunes.

At night fetish, bondage and hard sex nightclubs abound in the Yumbo Center in Playa Del Ingles. Most not only allow you to, but insist that you walk around naked. Sex happens from the moment you walk into many of these places. You’ll never leave without some form of action – mainly because the bartenders seem to be more interested in sex than selling drinks.

There is a great range of hotels and apartments to suit every budget. Everywhere is gay friendly and tolerant of naturist / fkk and swinging couples.

Recommended hotels and self catering apartments in Maspalomas and Playa Del Ingles

  • There are lots of highly rated apartments in all the right places in Maspalomas and Playa Del Ingles. This is the ideal way to book a short or long self catering break close to the dunes and the nightlife at the Yumbo center.
  • Hotel Riu Palace Maspalomas – situated right on the dunes and right next to the biggest gay cruising area in the dunes. Ideal for Recon and Grindr pickups. Also within walking distance to the fetish and BDSM clubs in the Yumbo center.
  • Cordial Green Golf – ideally situated close to the golf course and a short walk from the cruising zones. Also conveniently placed for the Faro 2 shopping centre and taxi ranks.
  • La Mirage Swingers Club – An adults only swingers holiday resort. All manner of wicked action goes on here. This place books up quickly in high season.
  • Beach Boys Boutique Resort – A gay only resort located next to the Yumbo center. Ideal for taking your night’s conquest back to the hotel.
  • Capri Bungalow Apartments – conveniently located near the gold course behind the dunes, with a free bus service which happens to drop you off at a local cruising area. Plenty of taxis. Apartments are great for slaves, subs and local conquests.
  • Vista Bonita – a gay and lesbian resort with great facilities, WIFI and well situated for taxis and nightlife.
  • Oasis Maspalomas – right next to the dune-side lake and looking towards the large dune where prominent tops parade their prominent cocks. Great position. Voyeurs – take your telescopes.
  • Gran Hotel Seaside Residencia – set back from the main resort with views of the hills and great transport links for taxis and buses. This apartment complex is open access 24 hours a day, making it ideal for returning at 5am after an afternoon, evening, and night of fisting in the Yumbo.
  • Riu Palace Oasis Hotel – this hotel is on the beach, next to the Faro lighthouse at the Maspalomas end of town. It’s ideal if you want to walk 50m for dogging with the locals, or to pick up a Canarian twink sub by the camel ride station. (Yes, there is a camel ride station next to popular spot for submissive cocksucking in the bushes. Serious wildlife.)
  • Duna Golf Hotel – ideally perched by a particularly cruisy area of the sand dunes. Lots of good reviews on Squirt for this place. Easy to get taxis or walk to the Yumbo and footsteps away from uninhibited action of the sandy variety.

Kinkiest clubs in the Yumbo Center in Playa Del Ingles

  • Bärenhöhle – the Bear cave. Popular with hairy middle aged Germans and plushie fans. Hot sweaty, but very civilised, action here.
  • Construction – hard edged cruisy gay bar with darkroom, nudity and regular fetish events.
  • Basement studios – all in one gay holiday resort with day access, cruising areas, slings by the pool, sauna and hot men all year round. Lots of harnesses, leather and buckles here. Variety of Oxballs cock toys seen on the sunbeds this year.
  • Bunker sex bar – Hot bar in the Yumbo with wide variety of ages and nationalities. A cornucopia of cultural cock with slings, cages, piss rooms, restraint tables, suspension and a very well lit St Andrew’s cross with shackles. The urinal are designed to facilitate easy backdoor entry on those mid-urination.
  • The Cellar Mens’ Bar – Ideal for masters and slaves or filthy sex pigs this really is like a cellar. Everyone is invariably naked or wearing something on their cock. It’s very dark and there’s plenty to grab your interest.
  • Red Gay bar – very well established. Everything you’d ever want in a cruising bar. Very well resourced play areas. Low key, but kinky atmosphere with a relaxed fetishism and many an exposed pert buttock.
  • The Box – no frills, small and sleazy with an ‘anything goes’ ethos. As soon as you walk through the rubber curtain, strip off and put your clothing in a locker, the emphasis is on fucking, grabbing, sucking, sling action and gangbangs . Get bored or want a rest and there’s wall to wall porn, prison bars, a relaxing fisting bed, colour coordinated glory holes, a slippery piss room and a barman by the name of Xeph with bullet hard nipples. Most people return.

Must have items for the dunes, bars and cruising

  • A douche – if you plan to bottom for hours; condoms;  lots of lube, an ankle or wrist wallet; lots of bottles of water (available on the beach but cheaper from the hypermarkets), a supermarket tote bag or cheap rucksack, exciting swimwear, jockstrap; a pop up beach tent; factor 50 sunscreen; a towel; a mobile phone with Grindr or Whiplr; and an open mind!

Reviewer: Master John

I love kink. I particularly enjoy large anal plugs, expanding inflatables, deep insertions and prostate massages. I've recently branched out into estim for prostate massage and exotic programmable fucking machines. There's nothing like trying it all out on an unsuspecting sub first, male, female or transgender...
