Where to stay
An off-the-beaten-path option for accommodation in Lanzarote during August is to rent a room further inland at a bed and breakfast or an inn like Casitas Tabayesco. These rooms are spacious and sunny, and the location of the resort still provides access to white, sandy beaches while still allowing tourists to have a great authentic Canarian experience. The roof terraces provide a unique view of both the sea and the mountains.
Tourists who are interested in helping the environment should look into one of the eco-friendly hotels on the island of Lanzarote. Finca de Arrieta is one of these. There are only seven rooms, so tourists should book in advance. If you are concerned about air conditioning, remember to check whether your hotel has it or not before making your reservation. Not all accommodation has it included.
During the stay, tourists will see that the electricity is supplied by wind turbines and solar panels. The resort uses well water and produces its own produce and eggs to serve guests each day. This should not say to potential guests that the hotel is in any way inferior to other hotels, though. There is still a luxury villa and a stone cottage to choose from.
