My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Arrecife, Lanzarotte. We stayed on a boat in the marina. The marina had some very tasteful shops and restaurant. Showers and toilet facilities were very clean.
A short walk from the marina was a free bus that goes to the bus station. From there the whole island became accessible at little cost and a very frequent bus service. Lots of museums, culture and art galleries in Arrecife. The Whalers gave a free performance in the town which was great.
Staying on the boat for accommodation was different and I would recommend it to anyone who is mobile. It was a very enjoyable adventure.
