Arguineguin doesn't have a lot to offer, other than a relaxing time. Activities go on in the hotels such as tennis and swimming but other than that, there is not much action going on. There is plenty of walking to be done as the resort is very picturesque and still has a slight fishing village feel to it. There are plenty of excursions to go on such as a trip to the three theme parks on offer, as well as a trip to the crocodile park or the camel safari park. Excursions into other resorts such as Las Palmas are popular as you can shop all day long.
