I used to live in Tauro so I know it quite well. Tauro is located behind Playa del Amadores and you can stay there if you want somewhere quieter than Playa del Ingles or Puerto Rico. Tauro is peaceful and quiet and it offers first-class golfing facilities.
Golf in Tauro
You can choose from a 9 or 18 hole course, each with green areas and artificial lakes. Golf is possible all year round in Gran Canaria although the prices go up in the winter because it’s one of the only places you can be guaranteed of fine golfing weather in the coldest months of the year (at least, cold in other places).
As well as the golf, Tauro is home to one of the Anfi resorts. This timeshare company rents out villas and apartments, as well as selling them, and if you do not want to stay in the main Anfi del Mar resort near Arguineguin you might prefer Tauro.
Tauro gets very hot in the summer, especially during July and August, so make sure you pick somewhere with a pool. Some people liken Tauro to one big dust bowl because it can be hot and dusty. There also seem to be more flies and mosquitoes in this area too. Laying in our backyard used to drive me mad because another fly would land on me every 10 seconds.
Shops and Bars
There is a Spar supermarket in Tauro and a few small cafes and bars. You can walk to Amadores Beach in 20 minutes or Puerto Rico in 25. You can drive to either in 5 minutes.
Tauro has a beach and there are plans for redevelopment because it is very basic. There are also plans for luxury apartments and a harbour although nothing has happened yet with regard to this.
