The village of Arrieta has 400 inhabitants and is set in the northern municipality of Haria, the most traditional area of Lanzarote and ideal for the more independent traveller. This northern part of Lanzarote does not offer purpose-built resorts such as Costa Teguise, Puerto Del Carmen or Playa Blanca. Arrieta is a small traditional Canarian fishing village which has learnt to adapt to meet the demands of some low-key tourism. Among other things, the village offers wonderful sea front fish restaurants, a very good pizzeria take away and a supermarket. As with other villages in the north, Arrieta is peaceful, tranquil and is ideal if you are looking to be away from the neon lit bars and nightclubs found within the tourist resorts of Lanzarote.
Arrieta is one of the prettiest and most authentic fishing villages to still exist in Lanzarote today. It remains unspoilt and there is a rustic charm to many of its historic houses and coastal alleyways. Eco Fishermans Cottage, set on the sea front village slipway was originally owned by local fishermen who lived there over 200 years. Each morning, you can still see local fishermen unload their catch and an early get up is rewarded by the most spectacular sun rise.
Arrieta boasts a beautiful beach called “Playa de La Garita” which has fine golden sand and is 810m long. This beach has a restaurant and beach bar and also WC/showers, parking and play park. The waters generally remain calm throughout the year. There is also a smaller man-made golden beach which is just in front of the Eco Fisherman’s cottage. This is ideal for swimming or snorkelling.
La Garita Beach: Ideal for…….
surfing, body boarding, sunbathing, swimming, wave jumping, there are sheltered areas, child friendly and perfect for sand castles!

We had such a great stay at Michelle‘s beautiful Eco farm. Easy communication. Exceptional hospitality. We highly recommend this place. Thank you.
We just returned from a week at Finca de Arrieta. What an amazing place. From the moment we stepped off the plane into the waiting vehicle we were warmly welcomed with a glass of cava and given lots of info about the island. We stayed in the Eco Cabin, a beautiful spacious house with views of the sea. We loved the yoga and Pilates, the paella evening, the beautiful home cooked food, the animals and the honesty shop. The beach is 5 mins away on foot and there is so much to see within 15 mins or so in the car (which was provided as part of our booking). Highly recommend this gorgeous place.
We had a wonderful time staying in the eco cabin. Our boys loved being able to feed the chickens and donkeys and the pool and trampoline were a definite hit! Perfect location, lovely staff and great accommodation. Would recommend and hopefully will be back!
“Es un lugar del todo recomendable, sin lugar a dudas. Todos amables y dan mucha libertad de movimiento. Hay muchisima confianza con clientes y entre los clientes. Un lugar muy particular donde estar. Se necesita también mucha de esa responsabilidad individual y buen sentido. Un saludo”
"It's a very recommendable place, no doubt about it. They are all kind and give a lot of freedom of movement. There is a lot of trust with customers and among customers. A very particular place to be. You also need a lot of that individual responsibility and good sense. Greetings"
Such a wonderful week! Thank you, you were so welcoming and super informative and helpful. We will be back!
Wonderful stay at the Eco Cabin. Beautiful inside and out with great attention to detail. There was no hassle with paperwork for the hybrid courtesy car and it was parked right outside. The cabin was big enough for a family and the communal area had a welcoming atmosphere. The staff are wonderful and really enjoy their work. I recommend the Eco Cabin at Arrieta which has been a lovely retreat for those who like to get away from the crowds and do their bit for green sustainability.
We loved our stay! This place is really beautiful! The cabin and the communal areas were brilliant. The place is a short walk to the beach and village where you can find lots of nice places to eat and drink The communication and airport pickup was brill - as was the eco car included The pool area is lovely The beds are really comfy We booked last minute and as such the prices were really reasonable too. Thanks!
Car and transfers included made our stay very easy and enjoyable. A little out of the way which was nice, short walk to beach and a couple of bars. Would come back :-)
"Lovely, clean, beautifully finished, well-equipped accommodation, eco resort and amenities on beautiful volcanic island. Lanzarote Retreats staff were brilliant, lots of activities and social events to sign up for if you wish (kids and adults yoga, pilates, paella night, kids movie night, curry delivery, bbq packs etc). Great splash pool and playground on site, the kids made friends and ran wild (in safe surroundings!). Hire car and airport transfers included was very handy. Collect fresh eggs every morning, pet the donkeys, get groceries from the honesty shop, have beers from the honesty bar by the pool , then plant your own cactus at the resort when you leave. Great choice of things to do nearby (ferry to island beaches, water park/zoo, yellow submarine, cactus garden, ancient caves etc). Brilliant family holiday...\"
The most memorable part of our holiday was being able to walk to a great family beach (Arrieta) with Spanish holidaymakers mainly. Our teenagers felt free to go swimming, body boarding & surfing. After a day of swimming or discovering the island it felt good to come back to the Eco Cabin with its pergola and small garden with fruit trees (fig, orange, mango, apple). This was our best family holiday. The unusual beauty of the island, the influence of Cesar Manrique, the sea and the weather had such an impact on us that we would love to go back. Also, having no Internet in the Eco Cabin meant that the whole family read, relaxed, cooked together. We felt very privileged for having such a lovely stay.
From the moment of booking this holiday, I felt secure in the knowledge that we would be very well looked after. The wrap around service arranging everything for us and making us aware of all available services and additional trips/ options was amazing. The pick up included a chilled bottle of cava for the short journey to the Finca and a great chat about the area with the driver. The resort itself is very low key, very clean and very slow paced...in other words - perfect for a holiday. The beach and small town across the road (Arrieta) is beautiful and local rather than touristy and busy...plus great for surfing (doing or watching!) And the five restaurants we sampled were all very friendly with wonderful food. The accommodation was gorgeous. Clean, comfortable and the four poster bed has inspired us to get one at home. Can\'t recommend highly enough. Thank you!
