Maspalomas pond and dunes

The Maspalomas pond is the most important wetland on Gran Canaria. The final refuge of a marshland that once extended over the mouth of the Fataga ravine, the wetland is now confined to the area of the pond where the ravine meets the sea.
The water in the pond comes from ravine run-off and sea water that enters with the spring tide. This process renews the fish population, bringing fish eggs and fry. At highest inflow of water, the pond can cover four hectares.
The west side of the pond is home to one of Gran Canaria’s most significant coastal palm groves, known as the oasis. Despite the tourist infrastructure that has been built around it, the oasis remains an area of environmental and scenic interest, along with the pond and the dunes.
