La Lajilla: Arguineguin's Little Secret Beach

La Lajilla beach and pool at Arguineguín in Gran Canaria La Lajilla beach and pool at Arguineguín in Gran Canaria

Arguineguín's Scandinavian winter residents hang out La Lajilla beach and natural swimming pool and are quite happy that nobody else knows where it is.


Tiny La Lajillla beach is just a patch of golden sand next to the crystal clear La Lajilla natural swimming pool. It has a handful of sun loungers, three waterside terrace restaurants, showers and a decking area but no toilet facilities.

La Lajilla is a peaceful spot and the pool is warm and calm. It's often at its busiest first thing in the morning during the winter when lots of Scandinavians go for their dawn swim. The beach rarely has more than thirty people on it and you often have the pool to yourself on weekdays.

La Lajilla is a great family spot with safe swimming and nowhere for the kids to get lost. The fish are very friendly.

Get to it by walking down to the sea from Arguineguín's whale tail roundabout and looking to the right through the palm trees. Or you can walk all the way from Anfi and Patalavaca beaches along the coast.
