Beautiful area to stroll round with numerous restaurants and bars, especially romantic at night. Prices tend to reflect the view and some care is need to chose the best restaurants from the tourist traps.

Plenty of restaurants, you can find locals and excellent food all around. The Charco is beautiful with all its boats and light. The night view is stunning!

We walked here, it is a very nice place to have a look around and take beautifull pictures with all the little boats. Make your choice off one off the restaurants around and sit back and relax.

We visited one evening, it was almost sunset, and we took some beautiful pictures. There are plenty of restaurants so I guess it'a nice having a drink with a view. However, Arrefice is not as beautiful as Puerto del Carmen or Playa Blanca, so we...More

It is a pleasant 20 minute walk from El Reducto beach to the restaurant strip of the Charco. On Saturday there is a small farmers market by the church in El Charco de San Gines.

I concur with the last poster. There may well be apartments adjacent to the harbour, so I suggest you contact the tourist board in Arrecife and I am sure they will be able to give you a definitive answer. Regards... More
