Jameos del Agua, near Arrieta, this Jameo offers natural surroundings while architecture and even a museum explaining the geological history of the islands, highly recommended.
Jameos del Agua is a place on earth where nature and mankind decided to come together. It was César Manrique who knew how to envision and transform what used to be debris of a volcanic tube with lava flowing from Volcán de la Corona, on the north of the island, into a unique place in the world. It…
Entrance fee approx. 9€ Stunning piece of the artist Manrique. Restaurants available at the entrance and exit. Beautiful pictures to take, but rather a short visit since there is not that much to do or see.
One of the most popular tourist attractions on the Island which is very close to Punta Mujeres. You can actually walk there, along the head land, although wear suitable shoes. You can also eat dinner there as well as visit a concert. The most amazing accoustics.

“Timanfaya is the symbol of Lanzarote. You can drive through the park many landscapes with your car on the normal road (dir. Yaiza). If you have more time, you can book a guided tour in the very heart of the national park (very touristic so expect a lot of people). You will have to leave your car at the entrance and join the tour's bus through the moon-like lava and the vulcano's calderas. Note it is not allowed to walk/hike/bike in that part of the park.”

“Jardín de Cactus was the last intervention work César Manrique performed in Lanzarote. The artist from Lanzarote could see beyond how run down the ancient rofera was. Roferas were the quarries that raids are taken from to create a very particular home for cactaceae flowers from all over he world. Surrounded by the largest cactus plantation of the island, dedicated to crops of cochineal insect, a product of great financial relevance in Lanzarote in the 19th Century. Jardín de Cactus has around 4,500 specimens of 450 different species, of 13 different families of cactus from the five continents. The green shade of the plants stands out against the blue sky and the dark volcano creating a harmonious explosion of colour that impresses visitors. The only sounds that break the peace and quiet that prevails, are singing birds and boozing insects, enjoying their very own oasis. High volcanic ash monoliths, that maintain the memory of years gone by, challenging plants from America, Africa and Oceania. At the top, on a small hill, windmills can be seen on the horizon, still standing, where Canarian cornmeal was ground dating back to the 19th Century.”

“You can go to Mirador del Rio over and over, any time, any day and always be blown away by the view ! It is not necessary to go inside the panoramic café (paying entrance), just park along the road a little bit further.”
