It’s nice just to spend some time here sitting by the harbour and watching the world go by. There are a range of good restaurants and places where you can enjoy a coffee or a drink.

We walked to the harbour, sat at a bar and watched the boats and their owners.
Always interesting things going on. People watching is a great relaxant.

We visited El Charco de San GInes on a cruise call to Arrecife. This is a pretty area with a large lagoon and lakeside walk, which is nicely maintained. There are lots of bars and restaurants where you can get refreshments, and its a pleasant spot to relax for a while.

I explored El Charco de San Gines as part of a pleasant stroll around Arrecife on a cruise ship visit to Lanzarote. It wasn't somewhere I had researched in advance, I just stumbled across it really, but was pleased I did.

It's a pretty lagoon area close to the centre of town, with plenty of bars and restaurants along one side, various boats bobbing around in the water, and some odd and slightly bizarre public art works and statues too.

It's a cool place to relax or chill with a drink, or just people watch. Worth checking out.

We've been to El Charco on several occasions - it's a great place to relax and watch the world go by! There are many bars and restaurants here and, as usual, we stopped for lunch and a cool drink. It's also nice to walk all around the perimeter, stopping to admire the artwork and statues, and to watch the small boats bobbing up and down - lovely!

Found this area after we hopped off the sight-seeing 'train'. Superb. Loads of cafes and restaurants. Good food and not costly. Good service. Great view over the lagoon. Very laid back a and relaxing. Highly recommended.

Lots of good restaurants to choose from set around the lake. Very pleasant to walk around. Close to city centre and beaches.
