Lives in London, United Kingdom
Since Feb 2008
25-34 year old female
I’m a Spanish girl living in London. Barcelona is my dream city, the place where to live in a near future. Until that time comes, I'm enjoying the opportunity London gives me to travel around the World. To me, every trip supposes an opportunity to discover a new culture, new people and a different way of living. As part of the HolaFoodie team, local cuisine is always an important part of my adventures. Don't forget to check holafoodie.com if you love food!

A walk along a natural tunnel dug into lava. While this may sound like a terror movie, it is in fact one of the most memorable experiences you can have in Lanzarote. The tunnel ends in a beautiful natural cave where little albino crabs live. Take your time to enjoy the stunning view.
This is a spectacular place from which to admire the ocean. Los Hervideros is a walk through the caves and holes that the ocean has carved into the mountains. Follow the lava paths down to the rocks and discover hidden caves with stunning views.
This small village still retains an old traditional flavor, with its dirt roads, tiny cafes and pleasant surfing environment making it one of the most authentic on the island. Going for a walk along its streets makes for a nostalgic visit to the Lanzarote of times gone by.
Seize the Famara surfing spirit and dive into the water together. A surf lesson is a fun experience to share with your partner, and this professional surf school organizes courses for everyone, so no matter what your level is, you'll be well looked after.
La Graciosa is a solitary island close to Lanzarote, and a paradise for those who want to enjoy nature in silence, complete with long empty beaches and turquoise water.
Playa de las Conchas, a beautiful long isolated beach with golden sand, is the best of the sandy stretches on La Graciosa, and perfect for an undisturbed romantic picnic.
The area located closest to Timanfaya National Park is full of wineries, and El Grifo is the oldest in the Canaries. Enjoy a break in this family vineyard and you’ll develop an endless love for their wines — as well as each other!
Welcome to my favorite spot. This building, designed by the omnipresent Cesar Manrique, has one of the most incredible island views. From its balconies above the cliff it is possible to admire the small but beautiful Isla Graciosa, lying 2 km off the coast of Lanzarote and inhabited by just 600 people. While it is possible to go there, it is really only worth it as a full day visit — if you don’t have enough time, the Mirador del Rio will give you a good idea of its magic.
The actor Omar Sharif once owned this house, before losing it in a card game! This spectacular building, carved into the mountainside, is now a museum, bar and restaurant. The beautifully-designed building and the pretty path around the pool area set a lovely scene for a romantic evening.
