Arrecife is the Capitol of Lanzarote, at one time the old town of Teguise used to be the Islands capitol.
Here you will find the only airport on the Island.
Arrecife has a small sea port, where cruise ship's call in on a regular in basis's, and now a new larger dock is being built to accommodate the larger cruise liners.
There is a small shopping centre in the town, and a larger shopping complex called Dielander on the outskirts of Arrecife.
The beach is long and sandy also very clean and often quite empty.
The Park on the sea front , has a skate boarding area and cafe, the buses stop here and you can get buses to other parts of Lanzarote.
A walk way runs along the front of the sea and takes you into the town. A little inlet creates a small lake in the town centre.
Arrecife has the only high rise building in Lanzarote, which was demolished by fire some years ago, but has been rebuilt and is now a 5* Hotel. Try the cafe on the 17th floor, wonderful views.
This beach is clean and deserted.
The town has now been updated, and is looking nice and stylish, well worth a visit, the beach is clean and often deserted.
