The best rated excursions in San Bartolomé

Unlike the rest of the island of Lanzarote, San Bartolomé is not popular for its beaches, as only a small part of the municipality is on the coast. 

However, Playa Honda, its only beach, is worth visiting. There you can sunbathe and take a refreshing swim in its two kilometers of golden sand. In addition, it has a promenade with all the amenities.

Being one of the smallest villages of Lanzarote, it is very scenic and, above all, quiet. But it is not lacking in attractions, as you can visit the Monumento al Campesino, one of the most representative sculptures of Lanzarote, created by César Manrique. And you can also visit the Tanit Museum, which is located in an old cellar of a traditional Canarian house and where you will learn a lot about the history of Lanzarote.
