Information on Arrieta
Introduction to Arrieta
Arrieta is a charming fishing village on the coast of Lanzarote with a traditional Canarian fishing culture. At first glance, it is easy to miss what makes this small coastal village special, but a second look will let you discover the beautiful beach, excellent restaurants and relaxed pace that makes this one of Lanzarote’s best holiday destinations.
Arrieta is well-paced to enjoy the natural tourist attractions of the volcanic badlands to the north where you can explore the natural beauty of the volcanic caves and the restaurant built into an underground lava pocket.
Playa de la Garita, Arrieta’s beach, is a beautiful beach with golden sand and excellent swimming conditions. There are several beach bars and seafront restaurants for you to enjoy during your trip to the beach.
History of Arrieta
Arrieta is a small coastal village located in the northeast of the island. It enjoys and celebrates the traditions and history of the island and many of the village’s inhabitants still work as fishermen and maintain the historic traditions of the village.
Things to do in Arrieta
Despite being a small coastal village far away from the hustle and bustle of the resorts on Lanzarote, Arrieta has a lot to keep visitors busy. This is the perfect location to relax, enjoy the sunset and try some locally-caught seafood before heading into the volcanic badlands to explore the beautiful natural attractions of the surrounding area.
Here are our 5 top things to see and do during your stay in Arrieta:
Punta Mujeres - a small, untouched fishing hamlet which is further north from Arrieta. This charming village marks the beginning of Malpais de la Corona or the Badlands of the Crown. This 6 mile stretch of volcanic wastelands was caused by the colossal Monte de la Corona erupting some 5000 years ago and is a truly staggering sight.
Local Seafood Eateries - Arrieta boasts several excellent seafood restaurants that all serve fresh fish that is caught locally. The three eateries on the main street, Calle La Garita all boasts balconies at the back that overlook the waves as they crash onto the volcanic rocks. There is another charming restaurant on the small harbour that juts out into the sea with outdoor seating that overlooks the water.
Casa Juanita - known to tourists as the “Blue House”, this curious oddity is located near the small harbour of Arrieta. This house doesn’t conform to the strict building laws that exist on Lanzarote and is made up of red bricks and blue tiles, compared to the traditional white plastered stone of other buildings.
Jameos del Agua - The main attraction of the north-eastern part of Lanzarote is this range of volcanic caverns and lava tubes that were altered into a unique entertainment venue by local artist Cesar Manrique. You will find a mysterious salt lake here, as well as an underground restaurant and bar.
Cueva de Los Verdes - a labyrinth of volcanic caves that were once used by locals as a hiding place during pirate attacks in the 17th century. These caves are now open to the public for tours of the narrow passageways where you can explore the natural beauty of the site.
Playa de la Garita - Arrieta’s Main Beach
Arrieta’s beach, Playa de la Garita, is one of the hidden jewels of Lanzarote, much like Arrieta itself. Playa de la Garita is a beautiful golden sandy beach that gently shelves into the clear, pristine water and is an excellent spot for a family beach trip with swimming and snorkelling.
The beach also boasts a children’s play area as well as ample toilet and shower facilities and was awarded a European Blue Flag for its cleanliness and excellent facilities.
Be sure to check out the Chiringuito tapas bar or Casa de la Playa Restaurante if you are hungry during your beach trip. Both serve excellent traditional food.
At certain times a year, such as spring high tide, the currents at Playa de la Garita attract the surfing community who head to this village to enjoy the excellent surf and fine waves.
Playa de la Garita also boasts a charming pier for diving off and will frequently be manned by fishermen.
Lanzarote enjoys beautiful weather year-round and Arrieta is no exception. The island's proximity to Africa allows it to benefit from an arid and dry climate with average temperatures of 29°C in the summer and 21°C in the winter.
It rarely rains on Lanzarote, meaning you can enjoy the beach all year round.
Arrieta Travel Information
Arrieta is located to the north of Arrecife and Lanzarote’s main airport. It is about a 30-minute drive from Lanzarote airport along the main route to the north of the island. Both Hire cars and taxis are available on the island but we recommend an airport transfer as the easiest and most cost-effective way to reach your holiday villa.
Once you have arrived in Arrieta you will find it easy to walk around the town to reach both the beach and the local amenities. If you are interested in any of the attractions in the surrounding area you will easily be able to find a taxi, although this can get expensive when travelling across the island.
