Gran Canaria Shopping: Where To Shop At Meloneras

Upmarket Meloneras has some of the best shops in Gran Canaria Upmarket Meloneras has some of the best shops in Gran Canaria

The Meloneras waterfront is one of Gran Canaria's smartest areas with a beautiful fringe of coconut-palms, a wide boulevard with exceptional sunset views, and many of the island's most attractive terraces and outdoor restaurants. It's also home to some of the best shops in Gran Canaria. 

The shops at Meloneras are based in the Boulevard El Faro arcade just behind the terraces at the Faro de Maspalomas lighthouse end of the boulevard and along the seafront. You'll also find plenty of shops in the Varadero Mall.  

Stores and fashion brand stores along the Boulevard El Faro are a cut above those in most local malls and shopping areas. For example, there's a Polo Ralph Lauren store, along with Lacoste, Nest, Hugo Boss, Armani Collezioni, a huge Fundgrube stocked with a wide range of quality brands, and a Saphir jewellers.

Further west along the waterfront you come to the big, bright Varadero mall with dozens of shops and cafes on two floors. It has something for everyone, including a Fundgrube and a range of local and international fashion brands and stores. 

Right at the far west end of the waterfront path, past the big hotels, you get to Meloneras beach and the Playa Meloneras shopping centre. This has a row of beachfront restaurants and lovely bars on the upper floors with superb ocean views but not much in the way of shopping.  It's a great place for a sunset drink or a peaceful meal right by the beach. 

The other leisure zone at Meloneras is the Oasis Beach shopping centre inland of the big Meloneras hotels. It has a few shops such as a Mango but is mainly a place for a drink or a snack.
