There are some beautiful viewpoints, or Miradores, across Lanzarote, here’s some of our favourites to look out for when you’re discovering the island.
It’s worth pausing to take in the balcony at Femés especially now that the area has been pedestrianised, there are two bar restaurants situated here to enjoy a drink or meal from this viewpoint down to Playa Blanca and neighbouring island of Fuerteventura.
There are always motorists and cyclists stopped at the mirador de Haría, there is a layby on the top of the road from Teguise as well as the restaurant and gift shop where the coaches stop. Also at this spot is the turn off for the Bosquecillo picnic area which has stunning views down to Famara and La Graciosa.
Mirador del Río
The most famous all Lanzarote’s viewpoints! The visitor attraction at the Mirador del Río is popular and the drive along the narrow coast road perched on the top of the risco is thrilling for those willing to try it. A beautiful spot to watch the sunset.
This one is hidden away in Tinajo, it’s situated right on the main road from La Santa towards the Timanfaya National Park. There’s a lovely seated terrace there shaded by bougainvillea with a sea view over the terraced valley.
Mirador de Guinate
Follow the road through the village of Guinate, past the old Tropical Park and the road ends in a balcony on the Risco de Famara for a slightly different vantage point to Mirador del Río, looking across to La Graciosa.
