Garachico is a picturesque village situated to the north of Playa de la Arena, approximately 40 minutes drive away. The village was the victim of a violent lava flow from the volcanoes on the island in 1706. This created lava rock pools which are one of the main attractions of the village. Garachico is also home to the Church of Santa Ana and the former Convent of San Francisco. The church had to be rebuilt after the damage caused during the volcanic eruption. The convent is a beautiful example of Canarian architecture with stunning wooden balconies. The convent also houses a small museum.

We had a lovely relaxing holiday, the apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We particularly loved having our own patio area. Restaurants and bars were very close, as were all supermarkets and shops. The owner Chris was very helpful with the information provided before our trip. We would definitely recommend this apartment and would love to return there ourselves. J &T from Slough
