Jameos del Agua in Lanzarote – by Day & Night

César Manrique was a great artist and architect, he created a lot of interesting things/sights on Lanzarote, where he was born. I honestly haven’t heard about him until I came here, although I like art and I am not ‘illiterate’ in it. Now I adore his works, the Jardin de Cactus is my favourite (I wrote about the Cactus Garden here), I love the Mirador del Rio, the Timanfaya Park (El Diabolo Restaurant, Ruta de los Volcanoes => here a post ‘It is like a Walk on the Moon in Lanzarote‘), I saw the Cueva los Verdes => Previous post “Bucket List for Lanzarote“.

The Jameos del Agua is also an architectural masterpiece! He transformed the cave into an auditorium, restaurant, bar and gardens. It was one of the first touristic sites created by him during the 1960’s.

White Sandy Beaches on La Graciosa Island

Since I spend my second winter half on Lanzarote it is obvious that I should see La Graciosa.

I don’t think you heard about this Island only if you have spent some time on Lanzarote, not that popular like La Gomera from Tenerife… It is just 2 kilometers from Lanzarote. The name means ‘graceful’ in Spanish (I like the sound of it:).

The island is really tiny, 8 km 4 km and there are only 700 inhabitants. It even has a school and supermarkets, you can also hire bikes here.  There are almost no cars here only the jeeps waiting for toursists at the harbour to take them around the island

Visiting the Jardin de Cactus – Cactus Garden – in Lanzarote

The Cactus Garden (in Spanish Jardin de Cactus) is located at the town of Guatiza. It was designed by César Manrique, the island’s most influential artist.

There are more than 7,200 cactus plants with more than 1,100 different species even from countries like Mexico, Kenya, Tanzania, Morocco or Peru. You can find here many different shapes, sizes, colours, in my opinion it is a photographers’ paradise to come here and spend some time taking pictures of huge 2-meter-tall ones to more unusual species.

10 photos to convince you to go to the Papagayo Beach

Papagayo Beach (Playa de Papagayo) is in the south of Lanzarote, it is one of the most popular beaches of the Island.

White sandy beaches & crystal clear water you can find here. The entrance to the Natural Monument of Los Ajaches is  3 EUR, there is enough parking place for a lot of visitors. There is a small restaurant on the hillside of the beach, from where there is a beautiful view over the bay. On foot you can walk to different secluded beaches, almost nobody is there so you won’t be disturbed at all. Many excursion ships come by, catamarans, sailing ships, you can take nice photos of ships too 🙂
