Muñique

Muñique, surrounded by the Timbaiba mountain, brings a wealth of natural beauty to Lanzarote’s surroundings. The natural landscapes of the area of El Jable combine sensationally with the good and rich traditional cuisine of the island.

Where is Muñique?

Muñique is a small town belonging to the municipality of Teguise which is next to Soo and Tiagua, nestled in the wonderful setting of Jable. This town also offers delicious traditional island dishes at its famous Teleclub, served with a glass of Lanzarote wine and a game of bola canaria, a typical entertaining game played by locals.

What to see in Muñique

  • El Jable Trails: El Jable is essentially a series of large sandplains made up of marine sediments which form much of Lanzarote’s landscapes. From Muñique you can take several trails which cross these plains, both by foot and bike. It is an alternative way to discover one of Lanzarote’s most spectacular and unspoilt landscapes. However, as it is a listed ZEPA zone (Special Protection Area for Wild Birds), we need to be especially careful when visiting to not disturb the habitat or nests of the birds who live there.

The best food in Muñique

The best way to spend a fun and enjoyable evening with your travel companions is without a doubt at the Muñique Teleclub. Its owners will make you feel like another Lanzarote local with typical dishes from the island’s cuisine: goat, grilled cheese, rabbit stew…

Shopping in Muñique

Muñique, due to being so small, has no real stores or shops. However, in the neighbouring towns (Soo and Tiagua) you can find any of the basic items you need for your stay.

Climate in Muñique

Muñique has an arid climate, with hot temperatures over summer (lows of 16ºC and highs of 28ºC). In winter, the temperatures drop considerably.

Local fiestas in Muñique

Muñique celebrates its fiestas in honour of Santa Fátima and San Isidro Labrador on 3rd and 20th May. It is a fantastic way to mix with locals and see some of the activities that are held over these dates: cake contests, gymkhanas for the children, and parties… You’ll have a wonderful time!

Spearfishing in Lanzarote: zones, standards, requirements and more

Spearfishing allows you to get in full contact with the marine ecosystem. It is a unique activity but it also involves a physical effort and a selective practice to be able to do it. In places like Lanzarote underwater fishing is very practiced, andit is a place with great diversity and abundance of marine fauna. However, the island has delimited areas for spearfishing.

Everything you need to know about César Manrique

His great passion for nature made his works stand out, among many other reasons, for that characteristic way of Creating Art in tune with the environment. And although Lanzarote is one of the places with the largest number of works by César Manrique, we can find works by the artist throughout the Canary Islands.
