Just outside the harbor of Pasito Blanco we find the bay of Meloneras which has a maximum depth of 6 meters. This makes it an ideal place for try-out dives, check-outs, training or just for a first dive after not diving for a while to pick-up on things in confined circumstances. There is a nice small rock boulders reef where we find all kind of sponges and algae, nudibranches, seahorses, wrasse, damselfish, parrotfish, pufferfish, breams, cuttlefish etc. When you have your lucky day you will find some sea turtles that have their residence in the bay!

Playa del Ingles, Maspalomas and Meloneras are the most popular tourist areas on Gran Canaria, because of the dunes and the big sandy beaches which fringe them. However all this sand mens that the scuba divining in Playa del Ingles is very poor - lots of sand, no scenery and limited marine life in very shallow water. However this can be a good place to stay if you have a family as there are plenty of other attractions for the non-divers, and it is half way between the dive sites on the west and on the east coast of Gran Canaria. Maspalomas and Meloneras offer much better diving.
