Punta Mujeres is one of the few unspoilt traditional fishing villages left on the Island of Lanzarote. Away from mass tourism and situated next to the lovely village of Arrieta, in the district of Haria. The tranquil setting and pace of life will allow you to totally unwind and get away from it all.
There are several good restaurants in the village, 'Las Tres Lunas' fresh fish restaurant right by the sea (daytime only), Palinki's traditional restaurant / tapas bar, (great for steaks), El Lago, fish restaurant, en route to Arrieta and a tapas bar in the centre of the village by the sea. (A must visit to experience the ambience of the locals and sample their homemade tapas and wines) As well as mini supermarkets, cafes and a delightful pizza parlour. The famous Jameous Del Agua is very near to the house and can be seen from the roof terrace. Saturday morning markets are very popular in the delightful town of Haria which is a short drive away. Sample local organic produce and crafts as well as traditional music.
Natural sea swimming pools, unique to Punta Mujeres, run along the shore line throughout the village (safe for children) and theraputic. The nearest sandy beach is next door in the village of Arrieta with a tapas bar right on the beach and play areas for the children. The beautiful white sands blown over from the Sahara, have formed beautiful beaches situated near to the village of Orzola, (around a 10 minute drive north from the property). The hidden lagoon is among them, and if you want to experience total tranquility, well worth a visit. A lava fall out formed a safe lagoon with warm still waters, ideal for snorkelling.
Visit the local Aloe Vera houses in Punta Mujeres, where you can sample and purchase the unique properties of the plant that grow on the Island.
