Eating at an outdoor picnic area can be one of the best activities to do with the family in Lanzarote. We recommend the following areas:
- Merendero de La Degollada: located between Yaiza and La Degollada, this popular picnic area of almost 14,000 m2, is full of vegetation and has shaded and sunny areas. The barbecue area has new barbecues, tables, wooden benches and access adapted for people with reduced mobility. In addition, for greater comfort when eating, the area is protected by a semicircular stone wall. It is located exactly at Av. del Rubicón, 7, 35570 Yaiza.
- Merendero de Los Dolores: near the Agricultural and Artisan Market, at Calle de la Cruz 4 in Tinajo, you will find this famous picnic area that receives hundreds of visitors every month. Located in the area behind the hermitage of Nuestra Señora de Los Dolores, this picnic area has a large open space perfect for children.
- Merendero de Teguise: behind the Health Center of Teguise is located this picnic area that offers the possibility to eat outdoors in group. A unique space to celebrate special moments (such as birthdays) since it has a lime kiln that is a strong point to highlight. It also has electricity, bathrooms and barbecues. It is located at Av. Gran Aldea, 88 and it is necessary to make a reservation at the Department of Culture of the Town Hall to use it.
Beach or inland? What are the best areas in Lanzarote for outdoor picnics?
The choice between beach and mountain will depend on the tastes of each person, friends or family. However, not only the views should be considered when choosing the picnic area. It is also necessary to consider the distance, the services offered by each picnic area and the weather conditions of that particular day
A picnic area with few shaded areas will not be the best option for a meal in the middle of August. Similarly, an area without toilets or a playground may not be very suitable to go with children… Evaluate what your needs are and choose the picnic area that best suits you.
