Arguineguín

Arguineguín

South Gran Canaria's most authentic local town with a pretty beach and plenty of restaurants by the sea. Popular with Scandinavians.

Arguineguín, south Gran Canaria's only authentic coastal town, is well served by local buses going between the two big resort centres at Maspalomas/Playa del Inglés and Puerto Rico.
Anfi beach is a strange blend of cheap and expensive; The beach is free and the sun loungers and beds are reasonable (Most shops and services are priced for the resort’s timeshare guests (who have already proved that they don’t mind paying top dollar for things), but some are great…
The Radisson Blu hotel at Patalavaca in south Gran Canaria is one of the island's smartest and has a pool to match.
Arguineguín town (or South Oslo as it's known in the winter) is south Gran Canaria's only local coastal town. At heart, it's still a fishing town even though it hosts thousands of Nordic snowbirds each winter and has a hugely popular weekly market.
Arguineguín's shops sell useful stuff for residents rather than souvenirs for tourists. It's where the south Gran Canaria locals come to do their shopping. Except on Tuesdays, when the big street market comes to town.
Walk downhill in Arguineguín until you hit the sea and it's an easy place to explore; the seafront promenade runs the whole length of town. All you have to do to start is work out where you are.

    Puerto de Mogán is pretty from all angles, but one of the best views is from the El Faro restaurant at the tip of the harbour wall.
