Practical information on Lanzarote
Coming to Lanzarote from Italy
You can find low cost flights for less than € 100 return. We flew from Bergamo with Ryanair. The flight takes around 4 hours.
Going around the island
Bicycle: We prefer to travel slow and see the landscapes in another perspective. When you go in this means, things remain clearly in mind. There are many bike rentals in Costa Teguise, one of which is:
TOMMY’s Bike Station (Av. De las Islas Canarias, 12, 35508 Costa Teguise, Lanzarote) we rented our tandem in this bike station, the only thing is that they did not provide us the night lights for the bikes, the tire pumps did not work (luckily we did not have any flat tires during our trip). The bicycle was not in good condition. They did not have much choice. We realised all this during our ride. So be careful and check all the necessary things you need and check what is included in the package before you travel.
Rent a car : Another option is to rent a car to tour the whole island. Fortunately, the rental rates are really low (€ 10 per day) and the distances are short.
Our preferred places to stay
⭐El hotelito del Golfo (El Golfo) – The view was magnificent! Both people and food are authentic. The ocean is within walking distance. Breathtaking cliffs and ocean views.
⭐Hotel Miramar (Arrecife) – We stayed a room with a sea view. Great location! Easy access by foot to restaurants, shops and to the port. We would recommend staying here because Arrecife is a great base for exploring the island.
Where to eat
⭐ El Mano Casa de Comidas – Playa Blanca : A locally owned restaurant by a local staff very well maintained and overlooking the port. Excellent paella de pescado made at the moment, very tasty and fair average prices, typical Spanish dishes. Recommended 100%.
⭐ Cafe del Mar – Playa Blanca : We headed in this cafe to get some excellent ice cream and of course coffee.
⭐ Tapas Bar Accoralado -Fuerteventura : If you want to try some good tapas, then this is the right place for you. They have a good selection of beer as well. Good service and decent prices.
****Don’t forget to have breakfast with churros and hot chocolate in any local cafe in Arrecife****
