Route 1: The Southern Coast

 LANZAROTETaking the general road of the south towards Yaiza, you will go through the towns of Tías and Mácher. Before arriving at Uga we can take the exit of Puerto Calero. Continuing by the same route we arrive to the town of Yaiza, where there is the typical Restaurant La Era. From there we can get to El Golfo, los Hervideros, Las Salinas de Janubio, Playa Blanca and the wonderful beaches of Papagayo  

Route 2: The ardent centre of a volcano

 

Starting off at Yaiza we take the road to Montañas del Fuego (Mountains of the Fire), zone of recent volcanism where we find the National Park of Timanfaya, one of the main attractions of the island. From there, going again through Yaiza, we go towards La Gería, zone of great landscaping interest dedicated to the cultivation of the grapevine. Passing through the town of Masdache we can stop to visit the Wine Museum El Grifo. In the same direction we will arrive in centre of the Monumento al Campesino (Monument to the Farmer), located in the centre of the Island, work of local artist Cesar Manrique.

  

Route 3: The Route of the Northwest

 

lanzarote camellosFrom the Monumento al Campesino we take the direction towards Tinajo, passing through the towns of Mozaga, Tao, Tiagua (agricultural museum of El Patio, centre of wine and crafts), La Vegueta and Mancha Blanca, of which hermitage venerates the Virgin of Los Volcanes, saint patron of Lanzarote. Here we can take a turn into the visitor centre. From Tinajo we continue until La Santa (Club La Santa).

 

We can return by another route going through El Cuchillo and Soo until La Caleta Famara, fishermen village at the base of the impressive cliffs of Famara. Here we will find a beach carrying the same name as the town with its 5km. of length, making beach in Lanzarote. In this brave water beach, we can enjoy a swim but with precaution. From there we can go to Villa de Teguise, old capital of the island, which is worth visiting with patience. It has stone paved streets, churches, convents and old stately houses which all contribute to creating an incomparable colonial atmosphere. There is a store at the Cesar Manrique Foundation, where we can acquire beautiful souvenirs of this great local artist. In Teguise there is a flea market on Sundays that is worth visiting.

  

Route 4: The North and its contrasts

 

JARDIN DE LOS CACTUSFrom Arrecife, the capital, we take the direction towards Orzola going through Tahíche where there is the Cesar Manrique Foundation. We continue to Guatiza, visit the Jardín de Cactus (Garden of Cactus), and follow until Mala and Arrieta, typical small fishing town. From here we take a diversion to visit the caves of Los Verdes and of Los Jameos del Agua (recommended visit during the day or even at night). Returning to Arrieta we go towards Haria (valley of the 1000 palm trees), typical town with African oasis style. We continue towards the viewpoint of El Río, balcony over the cliff of Famara, from where it is possible to see the island of La Graciosa and other nearby islets. The return journey will go through the Valleys until Teguise. In Nazaret we can visit the Lagomar Restaurant-Museum.
