Holidays in

An authentic coastal gem

Taking its name from the Guanche for ‘quiet water’, the sleepy resort of Arguineguin offers the chance to experience life in an authentic Canarian coastal town. This former fishing village is also still a working port, and fishing boats bob in the harbour while pretty, multicoloured buildings overlook the water. Arguineguin holidays centre around three beaches. The largest is Las Maranuelas, which has all the sunbeds and facilities you’ll need.

Playa de Arguineguin is quieter and has darker, volcanic sand, while Playa de la Lajilla is the most protected, with its wave-breakers creating a tranquil, shallow swimming spot that’s ideal for little ones and lazy lilo lounging. There are plenty of Canary Islanders still living locally, which means holidays to Arguineguin are great for discovering independent neighbourhood restaurants and cocktail bars, many of which stay open late. There’s also a lively music scene, so just kick back with a Canarian beer and enjoy.

Your Arguineguin questions, answered

Every Tuesday, the large, bustling market that travels around Gran Canaria visits the area near Arguineguin port, with stalls selling clothes, accessories, local food and crafts.

Absolutely – just wander down to the beach at sunset for the most incredibly romantic skies, as the horizon lights up in orange, pink and purple.

Not very. As a working port and residential area, Arguineguin has a comparatively relaxed atmosphere, with quiet beaches and a friendly local population of Canary Islanders.
