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.
