Santa Rosa

Costa Teguise, Lanzarote
Santa Rosa Things To Do

Although many activities revolve around Costa Teguise's sandy beaches - with windsurfing in particular being very well catered for - there is lots more to do.

As well as the Lanzarote Aquarium (the Canary Islands' largest aquarium) on the Costa Teguise, there is an array of places to visit around the island.

The Fundación César Manrique is based in the eponymous artist's former home in nearby Tahiche. Carved out of the surrounding 'lunar' volcanic landscape, it's a truly unique setting for a museum of modern art. As well as many of Manrique's works, it holds exhibitions by other artists.

Travel south west to San Bartolomé and into La Geria - our wine region whose bodegas will be of interest to any wine enthusiasts. The cellars of El Grifo, near the village of Masdache, date back to 1775 and exemplify the local architecture. The museum's collection tells the story of wine making, after which you can taste the wines yourself.

To the south coast is Arrecife's International Museum of Contemporary Art, of which Manrique was the honorary director. Located in an 18th-century fortress built by King Carlos III, the castle is a reminder of the past. The museum has works from a range of visiting artists, and hosts regular events and an elegant restaurant.

Heading further south still, stop off at the Playa Chica beach in Puerto del Carmen. Have a go at some alternative water sports, suitable for all ages, with Paracraft Lanzarote.

The volcanically active Parque Nacional de Timanfaya is a 125-square-mile sea of lava, formed by huge eruptions in 1730-36 and 1824. Its most famous volcanoes include the Montañas del Fuego, the Caldera del Corazoncillo and the Montaña Rajada.

Explore this fascinating landscape as part of an accompanied coach tour, and when you've worked up an appetite, visit El Diablo ('The Devil') restaurant that uses the heat that radiates from below the surface to cook on a never ending BBQ arrangement.

Cacti, caves and cliffs

Located in Guatiza on the north-east coast of the island is Manrique's last work, the famous Jardín de Cactus (Cactus Garden) with its sculptural, half-buried volcanic monoliths. The botanical garden with a traditional canary windmill has a collection of approximately 10,000 types of cactus from more than 1,400 species around the world.

Slightly further north again, the Jameos del Agua and Cueva de los Verdes are 10 miles of interconnecting passages and caves. It was formed by an eruption of the volcano Monte de la Corona, the highest volcanic crater on the island, some 3,000 years ago. Developed by Manrique in 1968, there is a 1,000-seat concert arena in the Jameo Grande, natural terraces, a magnificent garden and even a swimming pool.

On the western side of Monte de la Corona, the Guinate Tropical Park sits at the foot of the volcano. Covering 11 acres, the park's home to many different species of bird, mammal, reptile and fish. It's also close to the Famara Cliffs, with amazing views of La Graciosa, Alegranza and Montaña Clara.
