Playa de Anfi
The white sandy beach of Playa de Anfi is located in the south of Gran Canaria and was artificially created by the hotel of the same name. Despite this, the beach is open to the public and there is never any hint of a suggestion that only hotel guests are welcome here. The wide range of activities on offer means that as well as relaxing in the shade on one of the numerous loungers, you can spend the day playing volleyball on the sand or jet skiing, stand up paddle boarding or parasailing in the water.

Playa de Anfi - White sandy beach with plenty on offer for (water) sports fans

Playa de Anfi is an artificial sandy beach in the south of Gran Canaria. It was created by the hotel of the same name, which lies next to the beach and has a large impact on the scenery. The fine white sand invites you to wriggle your toes in it. On the right-hand side it is bordered by a small island, which is a gleaming, lush shade of green thanks to the large number of plants. Behind it is the marina. On the other side, the beach ends at a jetty.

A palm-fringed promenade runs alongside Playa de Anfi, where you will find mainly shops with beach equipment and beach clothing. It's also a good place to be when hunger strikes as there are two restaurants and two ice cream parlours providing food and drinks.

Sports fans will get their money's worth here. There's a volleyball court waiting for you on the sand and there's more than enough to do in the water as well. A water sports operator keeps boredom at bay. You can have a go at everything here, from jet skiing and banana boats to parasailing. Special package deals make these activities possible even on a tight budget.

To get to the beach, you must first park in a pay and display multi-storey car park by the hotel. A glass elevator with panoramic views carries you down ten storeys to a small shopping street, which you then have to walk along. There is a diving school here, where you can either hire equipment or complete a diving certification course.

In the neighbouring marina, animal lovers can book a trip to go whale watching or looking for dolphins. If you don't see any animals you'll get a second chance free of charge the next day.
