Villas in Matagorda Resort

Matagorda is 7 miles from the island’s capital Arrecife, where half the population of Lanzarote live. By way of contrast, this is a small working town that is not dependent on tourism for its living. Arrecife means 'reef' in Spanish, and the name of the town refers to the remarkable coastline, studded with reefs, islets and little natural harbours. The town has an attractive central sandy beach and a long, inviting promenade. It is not a town of major historic importance, but there are a number of interesting places to see. For example, the Castillo de San José was built in the 18th century to fend off pirates but it is now a sleek, contemporary.

If you want to treat the kids to something totally different, go to Puerto Calero, 15 minutes’ drive from Matagorda and take them on safari in a yellow submarine! The Sub is specially designed for underwater exploration and dives to the floor of the Atlantic Ocean for an hour, giving you an amazing window on the underwater world. The Sub dives every day of the week, four times a day – it’s not cheap, but it’s certainly memorable.

Exploring Matagorda On Villa Holidays
Matagorda

Matagorda’s most dubious claim to fame is that it is home to the island’s only drive thru McDonald’s! If you are craving a Big Mac fix, there is also a regular branch of the chain in Puerto del Carmen. Hey, you did not travel this far for a burger, so head for one of the very relaxed waterfront bars on the promenade and order a beer or try the local wine. They do very good basic, high quality, fresh grilled meat and fish as well as hearty local stews and sea food. The main shopping centre in Matagorda, The Centro is on the promenade where you will also find the diving school, a supermarket for stocking your villa with the essentials and a good choice of bars and restaurants. The town is pleasantly international, with Japanese, Chinese and Spanish restaurants, Irish bars and a German bakery.

You can’t go very far in Lanzarote without becoming aware of the importance of César Manrique, artist and architect, who was born in Arrecife, and died in a car accident in 1992. His influence is everywhere on the island, and thanks to him, Lanzarote maintains a unique blend of architecture and ecology, resulting in an unspoilt, traditional feel and a lack of high rise hotels and apartments. He was well ahead of his time, lobbying the planning authority to encourage sympathetic development of tourism - for example, using traditional colours when designing the exteriors of new buildings - mostly whitewashed with green, blue or brown windows and doors.

His work continues with The César Manrique foundation, based at Manrique's home built on top of a volcanic trail in Taro de Tahiche. This amazing building is open to the public and has an art-gallery of Manrique’s work and his private collection of work by other artists such as Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró.
