Overview of Meloneras

Ideal for a get-away-from-it-all holiday, Meloneras invites you to sit back, relax and truly unwind. Plus, with its great choice of bars and pools, the Riu Gran Canaria is the perfect place to do just that.

Things to do in Meloneras

After a day of fun, head to the promenade and visit the amazing bars and restaurants. As the location dictates, fresh seafood is always on the menu.

Meloneras is a small and quiet resort, but its activities and fun still pack a punch for the whole family. After a stay here, you’ll feel like your batteries have been fully charged.
