Arrecife wouldn't win many beauty contests but as the capital of Lanzarote, it offers a functional base for remote workers thanks to the easy access to the airport. Like the rest of the island, architecture is mainly designed to blend into the landscape. Lanzarote's great champion, the artist and architect César Manrique, instigated this approach.

The exception proving the rule is the Arrecife Gran Hotel & Spa. This five-star skyscraper is home to Restaurante Alarz Bahía Club where chef José Francisco Medina has revolutionized Canarian cuisine. Sip on craft beer at the bar of the island's leading microbrewery, El Camarote de Nao, or check out Lanzarote Coworking in Playa Honda, which is conveniently situated close to the airport.
