Tuesday is market day, one of the most popular in the South due to the waterfront location and is when this sleepy town really comes to life.

There is a coastal walking path connecting Arguineguín with neighbouring resorts of Patalavaca and Anfi Del Mar.

Did you know? Manchester City & Spanish Footballer David Silva is born in Arguineguín and the municipal gymnasium is named after him.

Arguineguín is probably the most authentic resort in the South of Gran Canaria that you will find in close proximity to the tourist areas. At times, it may seem that time has stopped in this tiny picturesque fishing village.

Tourism is not as evident in Arguineguín as in the larger places such as Maspalomas and Playa Del Ingles and there is still a very residential atmosphere.

It is one of the most populated towns along the south coast of Gran Canaria and home to many locals rather than being a focused tourist resort.   It has been developed into more of a traditional tourist resort recently with modern hotel complexes such as Sunwing and Radisson Blu.

Part of the municipality of Mogán and is located southwest of Gran Canaria, Arguineguín celebrates the Patron saint of Carmen – protector of the seas.
