“Great place for food and relaxation”
Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

This is a small lagoon surrounded by bars, great for lunch, a drink and even dinner. We gave eaten lunch here most days and dinner twice so far. Well worth a visit.

“Great for lunch and photo opportunities”
Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

Easy walking round this series of tidal lagoons. Filled with pretty fishing boats and surrounded by good places to enjoy boquerones and a vino tinto!

A nice little harbour in the centre of Arrecife surrounded by bars and restaurants offering tapas and beer. Highly recommended.

Stumbled across the harbour after walking along the seefront, colourful and quite, a nice place to take a rest after visiting Arrecife town.

“VERY PEACEFUL AND CLOSE TO MAIN SHOPPING AREA”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Visited Arrecife on a hot day in October. The main shopping street was very busy so we retreated here and spent a very peaceful hour sipping coffee and people watching. The boats are very colourful and there was a cool breeze from the water. There is a small market just around the corner. Enjoyable visit
