Lovely small community

Possibly the nicest village on the northern part of the island. It has several bars, a couple of tourist type shops, surf shop, and an excellent designer jewellery shop.

Situated between Corralejo town and the fishing village of Cotillo, Lajares is home to a mixed culture of local islanders and many other people from all over the world. A village with shops bars and restaurants to suit all types. A special mention to Cafe Canella, the busiest bar/restaurant in the village. Fabulous food and great staff

We loved this little village with his inhabitants coming from elsewhere. Once a week you have a handmade market. This small town has his own charm, you can find a few shops, bakery and some good restaurants.

Chilled out village frequented by surfer types, craft market on a Saturday, plenty of cafes, supermarket, and if your wondering where the beach is for all the surfers have a look on the map 15 min minimum drive to 3 sides of the island so never far away from from the best surf.
