La Verga Beach

It is a beautiful urban beach with little waves, perfect for the enjoyment of children and the whole family. Although it is not very large, it is very comfortable and has all the services such as showers, toilets, bars and of course sun loungers and umbrellas for rent. It is also next to the promenade where you will find a variety of alternatives to have a good time.

Balito Beach

We mention this beach as one of the best things to do in Anfi del Mar because it’s right next to it and is an ideal place to escape and unwind. It is not as well known as the continuous beaches and has slightly different characteristics. There is no wave protection so the waters are more active. In addition to this, the shore has a lot of pebbles so it is not as crowded.

Maroa Island

This is a small and charming artificial island in the shape of a heart on the Anfi del Mar beach. It is arranged to liven up the stay of visitors. You can reach it by stairs or by swimming. But if you wish, put on your snorkelling goggles and swim around the island to enjoy the beauty of the sea and the fauna that inhabits it.

Here you will find a restaurant with hammock services and the best meals. It’s definitely a getaway we all deserve, so you can’t leave without visiting this romantic island.

Anfi del Mar Fun Facts

The Anfi del Mar resort was started in the 1990s. It was born as an initiative to recreate the beauty of the Caribbean beaches in Gran Canaria, for which tons of white sand were brought from the Bahamas. But as it was already a beautiful place with a favourable climate, it was not difficult to achieve the desired result. They also thought about reducing the strong waves, so they installed a breakwater and achieved a dream beach where many people go to rest and relax.

As you can see, Anfi del Mar is a marvel and fulfils the purpose for which it was designed. It is an attractive beach that has nothing to envy to the Caribbean coasts.
