Marina Lanzarote is Arrecife’s brand new yacht harbour, located along the Naos breakwater and within a few easy walking distance of some of the island’s iconic cultural and historical visits, including the Castillo de San José (home to the Contemporary Art Museum); the Charco de San Ginés, San Ginés Church and market place, the Puente de las Bolas and the Castillo San Gabriel.
Designed by the renowned architect Carlos Morales, the marina’s aesthetic celebrates the nautical history of the area with white, low-rise buildings in accordance with island tradition whilst achieving an entirely modern overall effect.
The new marina regenerates a key part of Arrecife’s urban waterfront, providing a fresh welcome for visitors from visiting yachts and cruise-liners. The first fully-serviced stopover for those arriving from the north and preparing for an Atlantic crossing, this city location now offers a diverse range of shops, restaurants, activities and relaxation areas for simply enjoying the gentle climate and beautiful sea views.
One of the most popular new arrivals is the gastro food market, a top-floor shopping and eating experience with unbeatable views and mouth-watering array of delicatessen stalls.
In the space of just one year, Marina Lanzarote has earned a reputation as a hip new hang-out with concerts, exhibitions, fairs and workshops taking place each week.
The pontoons have been graced with world-class regatta fleets including the Panerai Transat Classique, the colourful Mini Transat and just about to take place, the RORC Transatlantic Race.
In short, Marina Lanzarote has all the ingredients to make up the perfect place to visit in the island’s capital.
