Cruises to Lanzarote

Get away from it all in laid-back Lanzarote, famed for its unusual volcanic formations, lava-formed beaches and abundant sunshine. Arrecife is Lanzarote’s main port, offering a scenic promenade overlooking the main sandy beach. Move away from the water and you’ll find diverse boutiques, tasty tapas restaurants and whitewashed buildings along its sleepy back streets. The sedate atmosphere is part of its charm, but Arrecife’s attractions include a saltwater lagoon and castles to explore. And the otherworldly charm of Timanfaya National Park offers a memorable day out for nature enthusiasts!



Arrecife was once a sleepy fishing village, designated the capital of Lanzarote in 1852. It’s popular for its shopping outlets, with designer boutiques lining Calle Castillo and Calle Leon. If you’re after local island handicrafts, hit up La Recova Market to find intricately made souvenirs to bring back home.

El Charco de San Gines is the area’s saltwater lake, where you can watch the fishing boats or enjoy a cool drink in one of the waterfront bars and seafood restaurants. Lanzarote enjoys reliably sunny weather, with average temperatures hitting 24 degrees Celsius throughout the year, so it’s always a good time to hit the beach! Playa del Reducto is the main beach in Arrecife, boasting a palm-lined promenade.

Lanzarote’s most famous resident is possibly Cesar Manrique, whose artistic works can be found all around the island in Arrecife and beyond. He helped plan modern Lanzarote, converting volcanic formations into unique works of art that blend in seamlessly with their natural surroundings. Look for his colourful sculptures, including large-scale wind chimes and mobiles, all over the island.

If you have more than an afternoon in Arrecife, a visit to Timanfaya National Park is a must! This stunning natural scenery was formed by volcanic eruptions, giving way to sandy seas and fields of lava.
