Afternoon all.

We are coming out again on the 1st until 12th May.

I just wondered if you locals could let me know of any festivals etc which may be on while we are there as I can't seem to see anything on the usual websites. We are staying in PB but will be hiring a car so travelling isn't an issue.

If there isn't much on in the way of events what would you recommend for us to do/visit during our stay as we haven't really explored the island yet?

Thanks.

Cesar Manrique's house is well worth a visit. Built in a lava tube, it's unique and fascinating. Playa Quemada is a small fishing village that is great for a lunchtime drink/eats with the sea lapping the rocks on the shore. El Golfo has the green lake to see then lots of lovely restaurants. Femes has stunning views, especially for sunsets. Teguise (not Costa Teguise) has a market on Sunday, but I prefer to visit on a different day when it is a relaxed, pretty village. La Santa has an enormous training village for athletes with a few interesting places to eat and drink on the shore. There is Timanfaya with the camels, moonscape and volcano. I am sure that others will have their favourites :D :D

Arrieta is beautiful, much nicer than Playa Quemada or El Golfo.

It's a small village on the North East Coast. It's more developed than Playa Quemada but less so than other places on the coast. It has a beautiful beach and lots of fish restaurants along the front that you enter from the street behind the beach so that the front of the restaurants where the terraces are have an uninterrupted view of the beach.

I'll see if I can post some pics later.
