The area consists of a main beach, and rocky coves backed by cliffs. The much larger beach of Maspalomas is only next door, just past the lighthouse
The Maspalomas Congress centre is located between Maspalomas and Meloneras. What may be of interest to tourists is that the building sometimes hosts public expeditions and large pop/nightclub events attracting large numbers and top DJs
Most of Meloneras seafront shore line is rocky with a very low cliff with the sea front paved walkway on the top. This path is backed by high quality hotels. There is a small bay with a beach backed by a shopping centre. But the massive beach that stretches from Maspalomas to Playa del Ingles is only a few minutes away along the front
Meloneras Sea Front
There are a few bars in Meloneras, try the shopping centres and all the hotels have bars. For more exciting nightlife and bars of every description get the bus or taxi to nearby Playa delIngles and catch a taxi back.
There are several restaurants in the Meloneras shopping centre and several in a fabulous position right on the sea frontage
There are several very large 4 and 5 star hotels along Meloneras sea front. There are no appartments along the front, but the resort has little depth with only a couple of roads running parralel to the coast, therefore all accomodation is near the sea.
The Punta Mujeres Archeological Ruins are located on the sea front of Melononeras between the promenade and cliff top almost infront of the Varadero Shopping centre. There is not a lot to see but you can make out the foundations and a foot or so of a circular structure.
The aboriginal Canarians lived here because of the natual local conditions, the local Maspalomas Oasis provided fresh water all year round, birds fish and shellfish were in abundant supply. There used to be many similar settlements all around the coastal areas.
As far as I know the nearest bus stops are in Maspalomas, only 200 to 500 metres for many of the Meloneras Hotels and arpatments
