The boulevard of Meloneras
The crowded boulevard of Meloneras starts at Faro Maspalomas and extends to the golf course - direction of Pasito Blanco - which you will see in the distance. On the boulevard you will find the Varadero shopping center and next to it is a large area characterized by restaurants, bars and chic shops. There are good Italian restaurants, a Chinese restaurant and many international eateries with a wide range of culinary delights. Furthermore, you can walk along the back of many of the luxury hotels with their large gardens.
On the western side of the boulevard is an area with bars and restaurants close to the H10 hotel and the golf course. The beach is in front, the beach of Meloneras "Playa de Meloneras". The beach is about 500 meters long consisting of sand mixed with small stones. The beach is quite large and offers (even in the peak season) enough space to lie down. There are plans made to create a bay here in the future the way it has been done in Playa Amadores.
Shopping in Meloneras
Are you curious about the shopping opportunities of Meloneras? This luxurious resort has many shops.

Along the promenade towards Maspalomas there are several exclusive and luxurious shops that sell expensive designer items. Shoes and handbags starting with prices from 200 euros is not uncommon. But with the five-star hotels in the neighbourhood shops are doing good business. In Varadero shopping center are about 50 different shops.
