AND ITS LANDSCAPES
AND ITS TOWNS
AND ITS VALLEY
The town of Haría boasts one of the most beautiful landscapes on the island of Lanzarote.
Known as the Valley of a Thousand Palms because of the palm grove to which it owes its beauty, everything that happens here revolves around the town square in the historic old quarter.
This is another of the towns in this municipality located on the coast and the one with the largest population.
It is a peaceful but vibrant town that is most famous for its spectacular natural pools. Two wonderful works of art by César Manrique can be found only a few kilometres away: The Jameos del Agua and the Cueva de los Verdes.
This is a charming agricultural town located very close to Haría.
Its natural beauty is tough to beat as it is surrounded by three majestic volcanoes (La Corona, Los Helechos and La Quemada) and the Risco de Famara, the closest point of which being Punta de Gayo.
A small town of pastoral and agricultural origin.
It sits in the shadow of the Los Helechos volcano surrounded by the quintessential mountain landscape of Lanzarote and its lovely crests and outlooks with sea views.
This is the other major coastal town in the municipality of Haría.
No more than two kilometres separate it from Punta Mujeres. Mention Arrieta and images of the Playa de la Garita and the Casa China spring to mind.

It stands at 90 metres above sea level and only one kilometre from the town of Arrieta.

For a long time in past centuries, Mala and the neighbouring town of Guatiza used to be major exporters of cochineal beetles.
This is the northernmost town on the island and is also home to the port that provides a link to the neighbouring island of La Graciosa.
It is an old fishing town now located within a Geopark. The nearby spectacular coastline of wild beaches and small coves in the shadow of and protected by random volcanic formations offers several mini havens for enjoying the sun and sand.
This is a small agricultural town with an active social life.
It is home to one of the tourism centres designed by César Manrique: the Mirador del Río. This town is also the starting point for two iconic walking trails in Lanzarote: the Hike up La Corona and the Risco de Famara.
