Where is Muñique?

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
