What do Yaiza vacations have to offer?
Untouched Beaches in Las Palmas. Yaiza showcases a wide array of pristine beaches along its coastline, many of which are largely untouched. Some of these beaches are nestled in unique, hidden enclaves of volcanic ash like that of Playa de Papagayos while others sit along protected nature parks like Playa de Janubio.
Timanfaya National Park. The municipality is home to significant natural spaces such as the Timanfaya National Park, an incomparable landscape of black rock, volcanic craters, and petrified lava beds. Other notable sites include the Los Ajaches Natural Monument, "Los Hervideros," and Charco Verde, which is also known as Los Clicos. Along Yaiza's coast are also the Salinas del Janubio, the best salt marshes in the Canary Islands.
Traditional Lanzarote Architecture. Compared to other villages on the island of Lanzarote, Yaiza stands out for its traditional architecture. Feel free to get lost in the intricate network of narrow streets winding between white houses while discovering the unique Lanzarote architectural details.
