This is a photo a friend took in Melenara (near Telde) –
As you can tell, he’s seen better days!
Melenara is quite a small place and although the locals use the beach there (especially those who live in Telde, which is a large town) tourists rarely venture up there.
Don’t confuse Melenara with Meloneras, which is in Maspalomas. A taxi to Melenara is going to cost you considerably more if you get them mixed up! There isn’t much else to do in Melenara, but Telde is worth a visit if you want to shop where the locals do.
