Maspalomas beach is broken into several sections, the first section perfect for families and children, the second and fourth often designated nudist beaches and the third for everyone. This is a resort perfectly suited to beach lovers and families, however you should be aware of the small number of nudist beaches and if this is not a concept you are comfortable with then maybe the resort of Puerto Rico would suit you better.
