Arrecife is a veritable honey pot for cruise liners visiting the impressive volcanoes of Timanfaya National Park, as well as the many other island attractions of Lanzarote in the Canaries. I stayed for one month at the end of last year near Arrecife on the ‘Island of Fire’ of Lanzarote. Lanzarote is the most volcanic of the seven islands of the group, with the predominant colours being black ‘picon’ lava and the green fields and palm trees of the central part, the high cliffs of the northern part, and the brown, yellow and red sands of the southern part. Lanzarote takes its name from the Genoese navigator, Lancelotto Malocello, who landed in 1312 and built a fort near Teguise. Lanzarote is 38 miles long by fifteen miles at its widest point, with over three hundred sunny days per year warmed by the sun, the trade winds and warm coastal currents. The temperature is always between 25 and 30 degrees Centigrade all the year round.
