Beautiful stretch of coastline that is well worth a visit to Arrecife from any resort in Lanzarote. You can walk several miles along the beach, harbour and Castle walls. Lots of nice places to sit and enjoy the view.

It is one of the best locations to stay in Arrecife, lots of choices on accommodation, restaurants but does not feel overcrowded. Excellent shopping not far away, easy access by bus and lots of parking within short walking distance.

Arrecife is often overlooked by visitors and it's worth a visit. It has a good beach with sunbeds and is never over busy. There are a few Restuarants at the rear of the beach for a drink or a bite to eat

Great beach for sunbathing and swimming the sea. Sun beds and umbrellas very well priced. Shops, snack bars, restaurants and places to sit for a drink and watch the world go by.
