The Canary Islands region
Located 100 Kilometres off the North West Coast of Africa, Lanzarote is the fourth largest of the Canary Islands. A perfect size, the island is large enough to offer the discerning visitor enough to visit and experience on their holiday yet small enough so that visitors do not feel overwhelmed.
From the spectacular volcanic landscape of the Timanfaya National Park, the intricate cave formations of Jameos Del Aqua to the action packed surfing beaches of Famara, Lanzarote has a depth and beauty which makes it a totally unique place to visit.
The announcement by UNESCO in 1993, declaring the island as a Biospheric Reserve has reinforced the commitment of the island to approach tourism in a sustainable and culturally significant manner.
Lanzarote is well known for its year round sunshine, welcoming visitors throughout the year. With the combination of traditional Canarian towns and amazing beaches, the island makes the most of its natural beauty and climate.
The island has no natural source water however the island´s earth is fertile and the many local farmers successfully grow produce such as potatoes, onions, peas and pumpkin to name just a few. For more details about the local produce markets held across the island, visit our Local Markets page.
Lanzarote enjoys a rather sleepy pace of life, with the opportunity to explore, discover and relax all in one.
Arrecife is the capital of Lanzarote and situated on the east coast of the island between the airport and Costa Teguise.
Located on the coast with an excellent Blue Flag beach (Playa Reducto), Arrecife has an attractive promenade that stretches from the port of Puerto Naos where the cruise ships come in and runs along past the impressive local government building (Cabildo de Lanzarote), the residential area of Playa Honda, past the airport and into the tourist resort of Puerto del Carmen. There are an excellent selection of bars, cafes and restaurants along the way in Playa Honda to wet your whistle!
The city of Arrecife has its fair share of museums and historic buildings. Castillo de San Gines is situated on a tiny island called the Islote de los Ingleses ( Iselt of the English) which can be reached by foot over the Puente de las Bolas, a small drawbridge with two cannonballs on top of its pillars. It was originally a fortress but is now a Pirate Museum. In the summer, it is mostly use by the brave (or stupid!) for jumping off the bridge into the sea.
The Castillo de San Jose lies just outside of the centre overlooking the new yacht marina (in construction) and the port of Puerto Naos. This again, was originally a fortress but since 1975 has been the Museum of Contemporary Art. It is open every day from 10am to 8pm but is as popular for its excellent restaurant which has views across the port.
El Charco de San Gines is situated at the far end of Arrecife, heading towards Puerto Naos (the fishing port) and the new yacht marina that is in construction. El Charco is a picturesque lagoon that is surrounded by fishermens´cottages . It was re-designed by the local artist, Cesar Manrique and is often referred to as the Venice of the Atlantic.
The lagoon is tidal and fills up with seawater so the small boats moored here have to choose their time carefully to come in and out under the bridge.
There are quite a few bars and restaurants on the Charco with Casa Ginory at the far end being well known for its fish sandwiches and is one of the most popular eateries here. Ask for a “matrimonio” and you will be given a mixed plate of fish and deep fried calamares.
Shopping in Arrecife is quite easy to find as the majority of the shops are located along or around the main street of Calle Leon y Castillo or Calle Real as it is locally known. This is a tree lined, pedestrianised area that you will find opposite the Puente de Bolas bridge that leads to the Castillo de San Gines. Along here you will find banks, tobaccanists, perfumeries a supermarket with department above it and many of the high street brands like Mango, Zara, Vera Moda and Jack Jones. Many will close for siesta between 13:30 and 17:00 and also on a Saturday afternoon.
As you head away from the sea wander down the side streets; to your left will be the Plazuela, a square with Mothercare, Benetton, a show shop and some great little cafes where you can sit and people watch.
Off to the right and heading towards the Charco de San Gines is the Recova market. This is a pretty little market square with a handful or artisan workshops where you can buy jewellery, pottery and local produce. On a Saturday there are second hand goods. The market is open Monday through to Saturday between 9am and 2pm.
