Las Afortunadas are in a central, but quiet, area of Playa del Inglés, one of the best known tourist destinations in Spain and Europe.

They are just 100 metres from the marvellous Playa del Inglés, with the golden sand and dunes that it shares with Maspalomas beach. The two of them together total 3 and a half kilometres of beach. In 1987, the dunes (covering a 4km² area) were declared a Protected Nature Area, in order to foster the preservation and restoration of their ecosystem.

There are three shopping centres in the vicinity, Cita, La Sandía and Yumbo, which not only house a large variety of shops but also leisure opportunities such as mini golf, restaurants, bars, discos, etc.

In the vicinity of Las Afortunadas, you will also find doctors and pharmacies, car rental services, booking agencies, bus stops and taxi ranks and a tourist information centre.
