El Golfo - Lanzarote

El Golfo is a quintessentially Canarian village which is locked away on the eastern side of Lanzarote, near the towns of Yaiza and Playa Blanca.  There is only one road in and out, which you pick up from the main LZ2 road just south of Yaiza itself.  From this point, it is an easy 10 minute drive to El Golfo itself.

But what a drive! The entire El Golfo area offers stunning scenery against the backdrop of the wild Atlantic, and the village itself has some of the best seafood restaurants on the island - get there in the morning, and you are likely to see the kitchen staff gutting fish from the latest catch on the rocky beach that sits in front of the houses, restaurants and shops of the village. It is very pleasant just to walk along the main street of the town, browse the restaurants, and perhaps greet some of the local residents who often sit on the green benches about half way along the street.
