The place with about 12,000 inhabitants is located on the highway south of Las Palmas on the south coast of the island between the places Maspalomas and Puerto Rico . Although Arguineguín also has a beach and a marina, tourism is not as pronounced here as in the neighboring towns mentioned.
A huge cement factory that was built on the coast and can be seen from afar is characteristic of Arguineguín.
