Guatiza attracts quite a lot of tourists. If you are visiting, don’t miss the following destinations:
Places of interest in the village
The village itself is a tourist attraction. You can enjoy its streets surrounded by dry stone walls that separate the houses from the numerous cactus campuses. On the avenue, you can contemplate the tall eucalyptus trees that line up along the road. We recommend a visit to the Santo Gusto church, in the Canarian style, with its impeccable white façade and the beautiful images inside.
Undoubtedly, one of Guatiza’s main tourist attractions is the Cactus Garden, considered one of the seven centres of Art, Culture and Tourism in Lanzarote.
This botanical garden created by the artist Cesar Manrique, among others, has an extension of 5000 square metres where no less than 9700 plants live, of which 1420 are cactus species. Founded in 1990, it is without doubt a unique place worth visiting.
Other places of interest
Visit the Tinamala Volcano Quarry: A magical corner hidden at the entrance to Guatiza. The Tinamala quarries stand out for their formations, which remind us of the Egyptian pyramids, and for their reddish colour of volcanic tuff. Undoubtedly, a place to take your camera with you.
Enjoy La Cueva del agua: A natural volcanic formation that connects with the sea. You will find it to the north of the urbanisation of Los Cocoteros in the direction of Charco del Palo. It stands out for the clean, blue water inside, which, together with good sea conditions, will allow you to enjoy a pleasant swim. However, when the sea is rough, you have to be very careful, as bathing is very dangerous. In the latter case, when the waves are rough, you can enjoy a natural spectacle from the outside.
Gastronomy and accommodation
La Tasca de Lita and La Arepera are the most prominent and well-known restaurants.
If you want to stay, you have plenty of Airbnb options both in the town and in the surrounding area. We highlight the Casa Buen Retiro or Chalet Buen Retiro to rest and enjoy a total disconnection.
