The Patalavaca property area is the zone behind Patalavaca beach between Arguineguin town and Anfi del Mar resort.  There are apartment blocks right by the beach and along the coast, and a mix of villas and apartments stretching back up the hill until Patalavaca merges with the Los Altos de Arguineguin property zone.

Since almost all property at Patalavaca faces south, it is one of the warmest and sunniest places in the whole of Europe.

Why is Patalavaca a Gran Canaria property hotspot?

As well as a warm, sheltered climate and almost permanent blue sky, Patalavaca is popular because most property here has views out over the ocean. Most also have outside space such as terraces or gardens, and are in small, quiet and private complexes. The area even has its own Michelin-starred restaurant; The Aquarela at the Aquamarina complex.

Residents and visitors appreciate the long coastal walk that runs from Anfi del Mar all the way to El Pajar north of Arguineguin. They also love the fact that Patalavaca is peaceful but just a few minutes up the road from Arguineguín town and the busy resort of Puerto Rico.

The future of Patalavaca

Patalavaca will remain a peaceful and established property area and is set to benefit from a major refurbishment of its coastal pathway. This project has already started at Arguineguín with the modernisation of the natural pool at La Lajilla. The next phase will improve the paths and facilities all along the Patalavaca coast to Anfi del Mar.

The harbour at Arguineguín itself is also scheduled for improvement to separate the fishing fleet from the recreational area of the marina.
