About the location
Occupying a peaceful corner of Maspalomas, Playa Meloneras' mix of elegant hotels and access to the area's best beaches has made it a new favourite hot spot in Gran Canaria. Playa Meloneras' little beach is classically Canarian, with calm, clear water that's perfect for a swim. The upmarket seafront promenade is the heart of the resort, headlining the best dining picks and a few relaxed beachfront cafes for sitting out with a cold San Miguel. Look out for some of the more traditional restaurants for a more authentic experience - the list includes a locally run Spanish restaurant serving huge pans of seafood paella. Playa Meloneras is a stone's throw from Maspalomas - its famous rolling sand dunes are a 15-minute walk along the coast.
