As the capital of Lanzarote, Arrecife and indeed the whole of the island has a refreshing and welcoming attitude to visitors, allowing you to explore the local sights and intensely relaxing beaches with the minimum of fuss. Situated on the eastern coast of the island, there is a treasure trove of historic architecture to be found around this beautiful port city, while the variety of museums and historic buildings never fail to draw the history-buffs away from the beautiful beaches…at least for a while.
