If you like the finer things in life, Meloneras holidays will serve them up on a silver platter. Nestled on the sunsoaked southern coast of Gran Canaria
, Meloneras is the neighbouring resort to the popular Maspalomas, radiating sophistication, elegance and style from every angle.
If you're looking for somewhere a little more secluded, with an added dose of tranquillity, Meloneras is the place for you, without being too far from the action. In fact, Maspalomas
and its infamous sand dunes are within walking distance should you wish to venture a little further afield during your stay.
Visitors to Meloneras will mainly be drawn by the beauty of the sweeping golden beach that meets the sapphire waters of the Atlantic, while the shopping opportunities in the resort are fabulous too. Whatever you seek, the southern coast of Gran Canaria has something for everyone, not least of which being the beautiful temperatures that can be enjoyed throughout the year.
Why spend the duration of your holiday on one island when you can hop across to another? Ferry crossings regularly operate between Gran Canaria's capital, Las Palmas and Morro Jable in the south of Fuerteventura. With express crossings taking less than two hours, you can spend the day exploring Morro Jable and the surrounding area with ease, soaking up the sunshine and admiring the relatively unspoilt landscapes and tranquil beaches that the island boasts.
Maspalomas Sand Dunes
These colossal dunes are a sight to behold and a wander along the beach from Meloneras to Maspalomas will bring you face to face with them. While you could just slip off your sandals and melt your toes into the dunes as you look out over the ocean waves, if you're after something a little more adrenaline-fuelled, why not hire a couple of dune buggies to explore them? Or, for a leisurely ride, why not climb aboard a camel to experience the dunes from a different, bumpier, viewpoint!
High in the mountains beyond Maspalomas, Palmitos Park is a fabulous nature park and botanical garden that make for a perfect day out if you can manage to peel yourself away from the golden sands. Home to an array of wildlife, including parrots, butterflies and monkeys (as well as dolphins homed in a sizeable dolphinarium for spectators to enjoy), Palmitos Park is set in acres of lush tropical gardens that are also home to an orchid house and a cacti exhibit. Grab a bite to eat, stroll around the park with an ice cream, or catch one of the shows as part of this fabulous trip.
Shop till you Drop
Meloneras is a popular haunt for anyone looking to spend a little in the stores and with four superb shopping malls right in the heart of the resort, you don¿t have to go far to find several shops in which to flash the plastic. With plenty of designer outlets, it¿s a shopaholic¿s paradise - with the added bonus of being duty-free, too!
Just five minutes from Meloneras beach, you will find a fabulous, well-kept 18-hole golf course. Set amongst some spectacular beautiful gardens, complete with lakes, flowers and palm trees, this golf course is as pretty as they come. Plus, the buggies come with GPS, just in case your swing is a little off-centre! Catch an Outdoor Movie
A highlight of a break in Meloneras is the outdoor Moonlight Cinema that can be found in the heart of town. Reserve a table and enjoy an al fresco meal before snuggling down to watch a blockbuster on the big screen. Perfect for a romantic evening, sit under the stars and enjoy a movie in this breathtaking spot.
Sophisticated, laid-back and with stunning scenery all around, Meloneras is an idyllic resort for anyone who loves a taste of the high-life. While not too far from the action of Maspalomas or Playa del Ingles, Meloneras provides an entirely different, more elegant holiday experience.
Its dunes are probably one of this resort¿s most famous tourist magnets, but the beaches and attractions are well worth a visit too. Perfect for families, Maspalomas boasts a waterpark and Holiday World, with Sioux City being nearby too. Whether you choose to laze away the days in the resort or venture off in search of adventure, you¿ll be perfectly placed regardless.
With great value Meloneras package holidays from Direct Holidays, you will be able to enjoy the sun, sea and sand of the Canary Islands as you sip on a glass of Sangria, slowly letting your troubles slip away.
