    Arrecife: Unexpected Lanzarote

    You might not expect to find the likes of Arrecife tucked between the sun-scorched beaches and buzzing resorts of south-eastern Lanzarote. People live here. People work here. It's a happening Canarian city with bags of panache and energy and charm filtering through its jumble of paint-peeling blocks and flowing past the bobbing fishing skiffs of the marina. Arrecife holiday rentals pepper the hills to the west and dot the coast. They are swish villas with panoramic pools or whitewashed apartments overlooking the blue Atlantic, all within striking distance of the heart of the island's immersive capital.

    Life pulses through Arrecife

    The real draw of Arrecife holiday rentals is that they get you to the heart of Lanzarote. People-watchers and foodies will have loads to sate the appetite – a whirlwind of somersaulting locals, bobbing fishing boats and sizzling shrimp awaits along the town's cool marina. Cafe-hoppers will also find one of the best ranges of coffee stops on the island, while there are enough shopping strips and markets and off-beat arts boutiques to keep any retail-hungry holidaymaker happy for the duration.

    Conquering the castillo in Arrecife

    The imposing Castillo de San Gabriel marks the point where Arrecife's blocks tumble into the Atlantic. You can't miss it, what with its cannon-topped turrets and salt-washed bulwarks. It's much easier to get to these days than when it was manned to stop pirates from raiding the marina of the capital. Head over the bridges that link it to the promenade and explore the gatehouses and keeps. A jaunt through the on-site History Museum of Arrecife is also a must – get ready for tales of the island's mysterious Los Majos peoples, of traders, swashbucklers and seafarers alike.

    Arrecife is always open

    The capital of Lanzarote follows the same pattern as the island as a whole. That means one thing – the weather's always good. Spring-like temperatures bathe the streets in warmth from December to December, even if most people book up Arrecife holiday rentals between the months of June and August – in line with Europe's major school breaks. The upshot is that winter, autumn or spring trips in months like January, September and April promise good value, fewer crowds and an escape from the chilly weather of the north.

    Volcano-topped Arrecife

    Arrecife's the gateway to the most popular stretch of coastline in Lanzarote. Running southwards from the city, it passes mega resorts like Puerto del Carmen and Puerto Calero. There's a reason it's so popular – Arrecife villas near those resorts mean access to gold-flecked sands and palm-shaded promenades aplenty. The capital is also a good starting point for adventures in the rugged hinterland. Go west for less than 30 minutes and you can find yourself surrounded by chiselled volcanic peaks, lava flows and ash cones within the boundaries of Los Volcanes National Park.
