Gran Canaria Beaches

Anfi Beach

My favourite beach on the island if I'm feeling lazy, it has everything you could want without having to move very far & it's easy to get to. For a tourist beach it's also pleasing on the eye and I like the carribean sand (yes really, sand imported from the carribean) as it doesn't burn your feet like the volcanic sand does.

Anfi beach is part of the huge private Anfi complex in Patalavaca. Whilst the complex is private none of the beaches on the island are so there's public access. Park just off the roundabout on the main road then walk towards the lower entrance. Just before the security guard's box on the left hand side you'll see the path that goes down to the beach itself. Whilst once upon a time Anfi liked to desuade people from going down by placing a security guard or two at the entrance to the walkway (they never did anything, they just stood there for show all day). That has since changed and not only are youi welcome to use the beach, you're also welcome to use the restaurants and bars and shops that line the beach. 


Of course there are sunbeds and umbrellas for hire or there's plenty of towel-on-the-sand zones. There's almost every water sport you can imagine available from pedalos and jetskis to paragliding.

During the week it's rare to see the beach more than half full but at week-ends it is packed and it's rare to find space to put more than two towels together unless you get there early. There's a public bus service going past every 20 minutes.
