Arguineguin is located on the south west coast of Gran Canaria between Playa del Ingles and Puerto Rico.

Until recently Arguineguin was more of a canarian fishing village than a tourist resort, but this has changed. Now there are several large tourist hotels in the town, for instance Marino I, Dorado Beach, Club Puerto Atlantico, Sunwing Resort Arguineguin, Green Beach Hotel and Dunas La Canaria.

But unlike resorts like Playa del Inglés and Puerto Rico, Arguineguin still has some of that old Canarian charm left.

The Norwegians have especially taken Arguineguin into their hearts, and the Norwegian population is quite large in the winter time. You even find a Norwegian school, Norwegian church and a Norwegian health center in or just outside of Arguineguín. And in close by resort Patalavaca there is a large Norwegian-owned timeshare holiday resort named Anfi del Mar.

uin has several beaches. To the right you can see the most central beach with dark lava sand. The beach is close to bars, shops and restaurants. The very beautiful man-made beach of Patalavaca can be reached on foot.

Restaurants and nightlife
There are several bars and restaurants in Arguineguin, many of the latter specialising in fresh fish.

The evenings are very quiet, but a more vivid nightlife is found in Puerto Rico only ten minutes away in taxi.

There are two shopping centres in Arguineguin. The newest and most interesting is the La Marea shopping centre on the main road.

Close to La Marea you will find the older Ancora Centre which spreads out over a bewildering number of levels and houses small shops and cafés.

The busiest day in the week is Tuesday, when Arguineguín hosts the largest market on Gran Canaria. To avoid the traffic, take the ferry service from Puerto Rico or Puerto de Mogán to visit the market and have a stroll around the picturesque harbour.
