Anfi del Mar is one of Gran Canaria’s most tropical locations with white sand imported from the Caribbean and crystal clear water on Anfi beach. It’s located near to Patalavaca and Arguineguin. Although the backdrop for this beach is well known Anfi timeshare resort, the beach has public access and is enjoyed by guests and islanders alike.
There are bars and restaurants, a small shopping area with supermarket, harbour and water sports area. On Anfi Love Heart island you can relax at Maroa Club de Mar or catch the ferry from the jetty which sails along the Mogan coastline.
Anfi Bridge takes you from the main plaza over to Love Heart Island. It’s a small arched bridge from where you can see the beautiful turquoise mini canal that feeds in from Anfi beach on one side and Marina Narval on the other. From here you can also see the lucky fish that get to live in such paradise.
This is the perfect start to a stroll around the island. We recommend you get an ice cream at Gelateria Capriccio at the side of the bridge and take your time.
It's a common misconception that you must own timeshare to visit Anfi del Mar. That's not true, of course there are a few readers of this blog I'm sure that own timeshare with Anfi and it's such a beautiful resort, but the beach is public and anyone can spend the day there.
There is a bus stop just outside of Anfi del Mar and a taxi rank making it easy to get to at your own pace, from other resorts. There are numerous restaurants on the beach ranging from Mexican to Indian food and snacks.
If you like spicy food I recommend a visit to Mensaab Indian restaurant which is a little further on from the beach past the harbour at Anfi. There is also a supermarket for any beach snacks you may need and water sports and ferry from the beach.
Walking to and from Anfi del Mar
Some of the best coastal walks are along the rugged Mogán coastline. Patalavaca, a small resort between Arguineguin and Anfi del Mar has 2 beaches (Patalavaca and Don Paco) which provide and excellent place to relax and walk.
There are plenty of places to go walking in Gran Canaria, whether it be mountain hiking or beach walking you will always discover the beauty of the island in different ways.
If you feel like getting some sun and sticking around the south coast of Gran Canaria, then one really nice walk or jog if you prefer, is from Arguineguin to Anfi del Mar (vice versa).
The cool thing about it is, if you prefer to walk across the beaches and rugged coastline, you can, or if you want to take the promenade walk above and get a fantastic view of the beaches and hotels below you can too!
There are several restaurants on the promenade of Patalavaca, plus a supermarket to grab a cold drink if you fancy walking along to Anfi Beach.
