Tucked away in Gran Canaria’s southwestern corner, just a short way up the coast from Maspalomas’ sand dunes, you’ll find the soft golden sands at Playa de Meloneras.
This 500-metre stretch of family-friendly beach rarely gets too crowded, with most tourists opting for the larger, busier spots along the coast, so it’s ideal if you like plenty of wriggle room while you’re catching the rays.
The waters are warm and calm, and there are lifeguards on regular duty. Facilities-wise, you can hire sunbeds for the day, and there are public toilets too. You’ll find a good mix of families, groups of friends and couples here, and there’s a feel good vibe that’s far from being rowdy.
You’ll also find lots of upmarket hotels nearby, as well as a good choice of bars and restaurants. Plus, it’s just a short walk to the town of Meloneras, which is home to lots of boutiques and designer stores.
