Lovely exclusive area with plenty top end shops and restaurants and pubs to go into. Lovely place to walk in the evening and feels safe for families. Definitely will go there again!

Nice short visit..for the sceneries, the lighthouse(el Faro), the beach..good restaurant , nice long walk on a "paseo maritimo" ..pleasant and enjoyable visit. If in Gran Canaria it could be a nice and quiet day.

Not so special but a nice picture place at the Meloneras beach. You have a very nice view to the Maspalomas dunes and is a great starting and meeting point for your walks at the boardwalk of the fancy area Meloneras

There is a beach , bit more rock and grit than sand. There are shops and cafes. And just beyond is the sand dunes.

Nice fresh, but nothing extraordinary. If you are in the area, you will see it anyway. Combinded with a stroll along Fargo.
