Teguise is a great town to poke around on your own, but the market is only
open on Sunday from 9:00am to 1:00pm. Even if you don’t enjoy the market kind
of thing, it is worth a trip to see the architecture, and watch the people.
While you are there, go to the top of the Guanapay mountain to visit
Santa Barbara (€3).
Built in the 16th century to be a watchtower over the shores of Lanzarote, it
was converted to a museum for emigrants in 1991. The views are simply
can access these spectacular beaches by either a long drive across unpaved
roads that are not covered by your rental car insurance, or by boat from
either Puerto del Carmen or Playa Blanca. Years ago, these beaches were so
remote that only the brave few would go there, which made them extra special.
They were originally nude beaches, but I don't think that is still the case.
With recent additions of a toll booth for access (€3) and some smoothing of
the road surface, access is much easier. Shame really, but the addition of
tourists doesn’t do anything to alter the beauty of this part of the island.
