Reviewed 2 weeks ago

A pretty lagoon ,with a nice walk around it.

Some lovely restsurants and sitting areas where you can have a drink and watch the world go by.

Colourful boats are in the lagoon,however it is just a pleasant stroll with some nice restaurants,worth a walk around if your in the area.

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 found this single spot Charco de San Gines to be quite nice..

This attractive area of Arricife is very pleasant at any time of day. There is always something to see, a place to sit and people watch, and a huge choice of restaurants for refreshments. The water of the lagoon is very clear, teeming with fish, and has moorings for a variety of small boats. There are the added attractions of the market stalls on certain days too with all manner of items from leather handbags to jewellery made from local lava.

One of the highlights of a visit to Arrecife. This is a lovely picturesque area close to the city centre. It is a tidal lagoon with walkways all the way around and a good selection of bars and restaurants. The perfect location to waste some time and chill out over a coffee or something stronger and watch the world and his wife stroll by.

After a spot if lunch? A nice drink? Stop at any of the great bars/restaurants and enjoy the view. Lovely views out over to the church with good footfall. Really busy and a sun trap too. View from a bar on Charco San Gines
