Local people around the area say it was made as a way of transporting things across gran canaria years ago. But it dried out and is now empty

There are plenty barranco's in Gran Canaria. Barranco de Maspalomas is one of them. Special about this one is that the sediment of the beach cuts the barranco off from the sea. Only when tide is high or in case of storm, a connection with sea is formed.
