Read our Frequently Asked Questions

Arrecife is the capital of the island of Lanzarote and whilst not everyone’s choice of a holiday resort it can be a great place to stay, especially if you have a hire car to get out and explore the island.

In the city there’s a pretty beach called El Reducto which is protected by the reef that gave the city its name. Because of this the water is calm and warm, great for safe bathing. For a bit of history and culture, visit San Gabriel Castle which was originally wooden until, after a fire, it was replaced in stone.
