Lanzarote Karting

Fantastic, exciting Karting track. Built on a hillside with challenging twists and turns. A unique experience. Karts for all ages and skill levels. Free transport provided for both drivers and spectators.

Reviewed By chrisbradley50 - Keighley, United Kingdom

We went last minute to the Karting in Lanzarote. we just turned up after phoning to check that was OK.
Brief safety video then a short wait for the kids to take part whilst we watched. (wished I had joined in afterwards) our children are 11 and 12 girl and boy and they both thought it was great despite our daughters reluctance to do it at first. They had 3 races with a gap between each one, different others of various ages were in the races, The races are 8 minutes long, enough time for 4 to 6 laps of this well laid out circuit. Spectating from the cafe veranda is good and you can see the whole circuit from there. The children thought it was brilliant and it looked such fun, they improved each race on their lap times which are provided as a print out by the very nice friendly lady running bookings etc. it cost a total of 70 euros but 10 of this comes back as spending money in the cafe/shop. It is not so easy to find the way into from the road, but there is good parking and a pick up service. All in all we would all recommend it

Deiland

Largest retail center on the island.

Reviewed By 68Rebecca - Dublin, Ireland

Delighted to find Deiland Centro Commercial on our doorstep during a 2 week stay at La Concha Boutique Apts in Oct 2017. The centre has every shop you could need, from supermarket to hairdresser to clothes shop, gadget shop, cinema and bowling alley. Also, bars outside for a quick bite to eat or to enjoy a drink. Notably the bar Liquid. Excellent centre. Well worth a visit.

Casa Jose Saramago

Reviewed By sdmmb

A relaxing spot. Saramago lived the last part of his life in Lanzarote and his modest but beautiful house gives you a good introduction and sense of the man and his works. Allow a good hour.

El Charco de San Gines

Reviewed By HenryWorthing - Worthing, United Kingdom

Stayed 11 nights in Arrecife and most evenings went for a stroll around El Charco. Lots of bars and restaurants border one side with Bridges and causeways encircling "the puddle". Arrecife is a pleasant provincial capital and El Charco is a particularly attractive aspect of it.

Home of a famous Spanish artist

Reviewed By FandangoEspanol - Wales

What a treat to visit this place, it reminds you of Gaudi in Barcelona or Friedensreich Hundertwasser in Vienna). A must whilst in Lanzarote. Don't bother about the other house in Haria. This is the best one. I will not buy it because it is not practical.

Playa Guacimeta

Reviewed By yankowskionhols - Tees Valley

When I say quite beach it is meant in terms of uncrowned, uncommercial, there are no sun beds, water sports or pedallos etc. There is a little noise from aircraft however as it is seconds away from the runway at Arrecife airport.
The beach is very wide, I did see some showers but other than that only sea, sand and space, great for ball games without worrying about disturbing others, be careful if venturing into the sea there are rocks underfoot in a few places, water is clear enough to see them.
The Passeo or Promenade is wide, flat, stretches for miles.
There are some fantastic restaurants here with fabulous views over the beach and sea, very easy to while away a few hours watching the world go by whilst enjoying some tapas and glad or two of local wine.

Playa Del Reducto

Reviewed By firefighter0870

Golden sand on a black volcanic island. The beach stretches about half a mile and is sheltered in a give. It's shallow for quite a way out and just warm enough for a swim. You can hire sun loungers for €3 but we used towels and their are public conveniences on the Promenade

Bodega El Grifo - Museo del Vino

The Wine Museum is the oldest winery in the Canary Islands and one of the ten oldest in Spain. The current owners are the fifth generation of a family who bought it from another family in 1880. It's placed in the protected zone of "La Geria" which was covered with lava and ash after the volcanic eruptions from 1730 to 1736. Inside, you will find wine presses, pumps, crushers, stills ... etc., everything from the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. We invite you on a walk through our vineyard in the heart of la Geria and to taste our Wines. Come and visit our winery, we will be pleased to attend you

Reviewed By Annie L - London

We visited this bodega in December with our 1yo son. We have previously visited wineries in other parts of the world and were really interested to see what makes wine produced in Lanzarote different, in particular the way of growing the grapes.
Unfortunately, we found the information on the self guided tour pretty basic and didn't tell us much that we didn't know.
Going out to see the vines was quite interested, and it was nice to be able to go inside one of the old vats.
The muscatel we tried was nice but the others were just ok. I found the man who served us at the bar to be quite short with me and wasn't interested in any kind of chat about the wine which was a bit disappointing. We went to other wineries (in particular Rubicon which has a free self guided tour, cheaper tastings and wine that is more to my taste) that were better to visit. This felt a bit too touristy in my opinion.

Iglesia de San Gines

Reviewed By Noel W - Liverpool, United Kingdom

This is a lovely square with the most beautiful church. Inside the church the architecture is wonderful and the atmosphere is one of peace and tranquillity. The main altar is wonderful but the side altars also bring their own charm to this religious experience. It is a great experience to sit or kneel in prayer and appreciate the calmness and serenity it brings.....

Walk from Puerto del Carmen to Puerto Calero

Reviewed By SeahorseWales - Wales

This walk is fairly easy and after the initial climb flatish. Lovely views all the way, I eould advise wearing trainers and expect to get dusty legs and feet. Great views of the sea and the volcanic background. You can either walk back or take a water taxi which run regularly.
