Destinations / Canaries / Gran Canaria / Costa Meloneras
Almost a satellite resort of Maspalomas, the little resort of Costa Meloneras has a super soft silky sand beach and a smattering of local eateries. The Lighthouse is a well known landmark in the area and the famous sand dunes of Maspalomas are only a few minutes walk away, both very typical features of Gran Canaria holidays.
Costa Meloneras has become quite upmarket in recent years and the construction of some very smart and stylish hotels has helped to keep this trend buoyant. Proximity to Maspalomas and, of course, Playa del Ingles, is an advantage for extra nightlife or shopping options.
However, there is plenty to be getting on with in Meloneras itself. There's a great shopping centre with a selection of lovely restaurants and the larger hotels nearly all have their own entertainment programme in the evenings. Holidays to Gran Canaria can really be what you want them to be! The nearby resort of Maspalomas can be treated as a continuation of Meloneras, so you can have 2 resorts rolled into one! The golf course in Maspalomas is also a huge draw, so shine those clubs and hit down that fairway - what a pleasure to play in warm temperatures.
