Set on the main beach, Playa Reducto, the golden sand beach here is perfect for swimming, water sports and offers one of the best beaches on the island for SUP and snorkeling.
A car is not essential for stays at this holiday apartment, as all the amenities you will need are within walking distance. It is just a stone’s throw from the beach bars, restaurants, play/skate park, seafront promenade and a variety of shops.
Within a few minutes walk, you will find The 5 * Arrecife Gran Hotel & Spa. This is a lovely place to have coffee or dinner on the 17th floor restaurant with views over the whole of Lanzarote.
This beachfront apartment has been furnished to a very high standard in a chic, modern style. Floor to ceiling windows from the lounge area offers glorious views over the beach and bay. There is a comfortable leather sofa and a seating area for six guests with flat screen TV, DVD player and Fiber Optic WiFi internet connection. The lounge is open plan to the dining area which in turn leads out to the terrace. The spacious, fully equipped open-plan kitchen/breakfast bar has an oven/hob and all necessary small appliances. The outdoor laundry patio is also accessed from the kitchen, giving natural light.
The property has three light and airy bedrooms – the spacious, luxury master suite has 180cm wide 4 poster king-size bed, built-in wardrobes, floor to ceiling windows offering panoramic beach views, sofa area and a bathroom with walk-in shower, WC, bidet, hand basin and a hairdryer. Both twin rooms have a built-in wardrobe and the single beds can be made up as doubles. The second modern bathroom has easy access from the shared hallway.
I have attached some images showing the plan of the apartment, I hope at least one of them is readable! Originally the apartment had 4 bedrooms, but the current owners wanted a very large bedroom-suite overlooking the ocean. Where the green line is shown in one of the images they took down the wall between 2 bedrooms to create the space that they wanted. If you did want to have 4 bedrooms again you could put the wall up, although personally I think it is stunning as it is.
Arrecife is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city full of culture, nightlife and history located just east of the centre of the island. Although Arrecife is our capital it is scaled to our island so even here the population is under 50,000 people meaning you can still feel the sense of community and friendliness not found in big cities.
The name derives from the Spanish for reef and refers to the volcanic rock formations that lie out to sea and protect the picturesque harbour. Arrecife was founded as a small fishing community back in the 15th Century but grew into becoming the island’s capital in 1852.
Today, it is equally well-known for its rich and diverse shopping experience, with traditional streets lined with boutiques, high-end retail outlets selling designer labels and many great bargains
The prime shopping area is Calle Léon y Castillo, a pedestrian road lined with diverse retailers, tapas and bars.
Check out also the Centro Insular de Cultura El Almacén, a cultural centre filled with various exhibitions.
Arrecife also has its own beach, Playa del Reducto, with golden sand and tepid, tranquil waters. A lovely promenade runs all the way along the beachside. Everyday there is lots going on in the area, sports events such as cycling, volleyball, skateboarding, swim races and cultural events, parades, tapas fairs, nobody gets bored here!
A short walk along the beach will take you to the new Marina Lanzarote where yachts and pleasure craft moor to enjoy the entertainment, leisure facilities and shopping worthy of the finest new luxury marina in the Canaries
If you prefer something more traditional than 2 minutes from the marina is the lovely Charco de San Ginés, a natural lagoon surrounded by beautiful white fishermen’s cottages. A charming, scenic area, which was remodelled by Canarian architect César Manrique, it is often referred to as the ‘Venice of the Atlantic’ and is a beautiful place to visit. Small boats are anchored on the turquoise waters, which make for pretty photographs. An attractive promenade lined with palm trees, small bridges, cafés, restaurants and souvenir shops surrounds this inlet.
