Viva Pirata is a 3.5 hour beach buggy tour which will take you through the spectacular wine region of Lanzarote, to Teguise, the historic capital of the island and on a visit to the Pirate Museum perched at the top of the island, in Castillo Santa Barbara, with the most incredible views of the island.

Temporary Change: While the Castillo is undergoing a refurbishment, the pirate museum is closed, so this tour will follow the same route and replace the pirate museum visit with a visit to LagOmar, Omar Shariff’s former property in Nazaret.

Here’s the full route:

Mounting back up, you’ll drive your buggy back to Yaiza, via Monumento Campesino.

The total tour time is 3.5 hours.

The Buggies

The buggies are really special – although they have the full vintage beach buggy look, they use modern four cylinder engines and automatic gearboxes, so they are super easy to drive. They also seat four, so the kids can come along, and they are fitted with bluetooth stereos, so you can enjoy your own music while driving in convoy.

The Price

This tour is priced at €130 for two people in a beach buggy, €160 for three and €190 for four. The tour is every Thursday and it departs Yaiza at 1300, returning at around 1630.

Aim to arrive at 1230 to complete the paperwork, and any drivers must bring their licences and a passport or ID Card. You’ll need to wear closed footwear.

There are toilet facilities at Yaiza, and you’ll have the opportunity to buy soft drinks there before and after your tour, as well as some very cool merchandise.


To book, complete the form below, and we will check availability for your dates and then we’ll send you a payment link for a 15% deposit – you pay the balance when you arrive.

We can arrange a private transfer for you from your accommodation to the buggy start point. €15 each way from Puerto del Carmen and Playa Blanca, and €30 from Costa Teguise, for up to 4 people. Larger groups enquire for price.
