Playa de Arguineguín (playa)
Playa de Arguineguín (beach) – this beach, located by the town of the same name, is located on the southern coast of Gran Canaria. It gets its name from the local (Guanche) dialect, which means “quiet water”. While this area has attracted some hotels and resorts, Arguineguín is best known for its distinct Norwegian community, which grows during the winter. Along with having their own school, church, and clinic, the Norwegian community also has a timeshare holiday resort (Anfi del Mar).
