Arrecife is the capital of Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands.
The last few years the city is growing considerably. In the last twenty years the number of inhabitants has almost doubled. Nowadays over 60,000 people live in Arrecife.
Arrecife is situated on the south coast of Lanzarote.
The original means of support on Lanzarote, fishing, still plays an important role in the local economy of Arrecife. Although tourism is mainly concentrated in others parts of the island (like Puerto del Carmen), the major part of the working population depends on tourism.
The airport of Arrecife lies five kilometers west of the city along the road to the popular seaside resort Puerto del Carmen. Arrecife Airport is easily reachable by rental car, via the LZ-2. The route to the airport is clearly signposted.
There is a regular bus connection between Arrecife and the various seaside resorts. There are also plenty of taxis and they're much cheaper than on mainland Spain. Sometimes they go to specific destinations for a set rate, sometimes they use the meter. Make sure to agree upfront! From Arrecife there are ferry connections to the other Canary Islands and to Cadiz on mainland Spain.
It can be difficult finding a parking space in the center of Arrecife. Parking is prohibited at curbs with a yellow or white line. A blue line means only paid parking.
Do not park in front of a garbage can. They are emptied round the clock and if you are in the garbage collector's way your car will be towed.
The number of tourists on Lanzarote is limited and as a consequence also the number of facilities to stay the night. Arrecife has a number of hotels and guesthouses, but most people choose to stay in one of the vacation resorts outside the capital. In high season you need to book your accommodation.
