San Augustin is a suburb of the South which is next along the coast heading east from Playa del Ingles. It features some brilliant beaches that offer a more relaxed and private beach experience than the more populated beaches around the dunes.
There is also a vast amount of accommodation all built into the hillside here with spectacular views of the coastline. It is slightly out of the way from the main areas of Maspalomas. You can walk along the promenade or take a taxi for 5-6 euro only to get to the sand dunes. There are some shops and bars and a shopping center here but mainly the area is accommodation orientated, in a great location just a short walk from great beaches and the main attractions of the area.
