Meloneras: The Other Maspalomas Beach

Meloneras beach is Maspalomas resort's other beach Meloneras beach is Maspalomas resort's other beach

Meloneras beach at the far end of the Meloneras seafront boulevard is a small, golden beach with a strip of restaurants just by the sand.

Not many people sunbathe here because they prefer the endless sand of Maspalomas beach. However, it's a perfectly good beach and doesn't get as crowded as its glamorous neighbour. The only downside is that the shallow water offshore has a stony bottom; Not a problem at high tide but a bit inconvenient when the tide is down.

Get to Meloneras by walking west along the seafront promenade with the lighthouse behind you. The beach is at the end of the walkway. It's sandy with a few pebbles and has loungers and parasols to rent.  

Swimming at Meloneras beach is safe and if you swim towards Pasito Blanco marina the snorkelling gets good. Look out for parrotfish and rays. The only downside of swimming at Meloneras is that it is a pain to get into the water at low tide s the botoom is a mix of pebbles and rocks. 

While Meloneras isn't as impressive as Maspalomas it does have its advantages. It's less crowded, more sheltered on windy days, and has restaurants, bars and shops right by the sand. It's a great place to eat at sunset as you are right by the beach and the boulevard here is much quieter than it is closer to the lighthouse.
