It’s time to announce the latest winners of the My Anfi Photo Campaign and as usual we have received some great shots of Anfi!
Each of our winners will be receiving an iPod Shuffle, the perfect little gadget to store all of their favourite music on and to bring to Anfi for some musical poolside chillin’.
April’s winner is Laura Townsend for her stunning rose-hued sunset shot – great job Laura!
Another atmospheric evening shot takes the winning spot for May – by John Thwaites.
We had a tough job choosing June’s winner as we had many fantastic entries. We finally went for this photograph of Anfi Tauro Golf taken by Graham Beardsley – just brilliant!
Congratulations to all of our winners – your iPods are in the mail!
Our June winner Graham is also getting a special ‘heads-up’ from the judges – check out his spectacular photos below.

There is a sense of excitement in the air this week at Anfi, in fact it is all over Gran Canaria. That’s because this Thursday, the 30th of May, is Canarian National Day or Día de Canarias.
Canarian Day is a public holiday throughout the Canary Islands, meaning schools, public buildings and almost all shops will be closed, even those within the tourist areas.
It is a day of celebration, a day to be spent with family and friends and one thing is certain, the Canarian people know how to have fun on this festive day!
If you are lucky enough to be visiting Gran Canaria during the run up to Canarian Day you will notice that shops and supermarkets are beautifully decorated with Canarian artefacts. Many people will be wearing traditional costume, and the beaches, parks and picnic areas in the mountains will be full of people enjoying their ‘fiesta’ day.
In the pretty fishing village of Arguineguin, a 5 minute drive from Anfi, there will be celebrations taking place in the main square, Plaza Pérez Gáldos.
From 18h onwards you will find a handicraft and gastronomy fair, followed by live music from a local drumming band.
The evening celebrations will then continue with a folklore show acted out by members of the local community.
The Canarian people take great pride in their national day and almost everyone from tiny babes in arms, to teenagers, through to the village elders will be dressed in beautiful traditional Canarian costumes.
If you are visiting Gran Canaria this week take a stroll down to Arguineguin or hop on one of the Global buses, which stop directly opposite Anfi and join in the Fiesta.

If yes, you’ll be pleased to hear that the nearby fishing village of Arguineguin has lots going on throughout the week to mark the Easter holidays.
The picturesque fishing village of Arguineguin, is the closest town to Anfi, and is a firm favourite for anyone visiting Gran Canaria. It can be reached by car or bus in less than 10 minutes, although many people choose to walk from Anfi along the coastal path. It’s a gentle walk that takes approximately 30 minutes. Don’t forget to grab a bottle of water before you set off!
The most popular day to visit Arguineguin is Tuesday as this is market day. Hundreds of people flock to the village to browse the stalls for souvenirs, fresh produce and artisan crafts.
The village also boasts a superb selection of fresh seafood restaurants and quaint Tapas Bars, as well as a bustling harbour and small, a sheltered sandy beach.
During the Easter week celebrations the town will be a hive of excitement as a fairground is being set up in the market square.
Beginning on Wednesday 25th March through to Sunday 31st March, there will be stalls offering lots to tempt visitors, including food stalls serving delicious local delights, such as grilled fat chorizo sausages, roasted red peppers and the famous Canarian wrinkled potatoes with the spicy Mojo sauce, papas arrugadas con mojo.
On the Thursday 28th March, the churro stalls, which serve a traditional type of sugared doughnut, will be offering free churros and hot dipping chocolate to children from 18:00 hours onwards.
During the celebrations the fun will begin in the early evening, carrying on late into the night, in true Canarian-style.
