Spar Natural Arguineguin
The newest branch is Spar Natural is a whole foods style supermarket which offers a selection of Vegan, Vegetarian, Dairy Free and Gluten Free foods.
This is really good news for those who have special dietary requirements or enjoy eating healthy. Supermarkets in Gran Canaria do generally have a pleasing variety of sin gluten (gluten free) and sin lactosa (lactose free) food but this shop is going to make that choice easier. It’s located on the corner of Calle Miguel Marrero (it was previously a real estate office).
They have a guide with symbols to translate the meanings such as gluten free, which is sin gluten (sin meaning without in Spanish).
Admin’s note: ‘Sin lactosa’ actually means ‘Lactose free’ and not dairy free as they have on their signs.

Arguineguin Park Spar Cafe and Shop
You might be surprised to find a small Spar cafe and supermarket at Arguineguin Park. It has a lovely outdoor terrace area near to reception entrance and is the perfect place to stop and have a delicious ice cream from the Helamore counter or Nespresso coffee and cake. They also do amazing crepes! It’s dog friendly and there’s shade from the umbrellas if you need it or you can sit in the sunshine.
The supermarket has all the basics so it’s great if you need to pick up if you don’t want to go into the middle of Arguineguin. You can walk down to the beach from this location down past the tennis courts, through the tunnel and you will pop out at the beach next to Sunwing Arguineguin Seafront.
