Charco de San Ginés

Lagoon in Arrecife

Fringed by homes and restaurants in a beguiling combination of mildly down-at-heel and freshly whitewashed (with blue trim), the attractive natural San Ginés saltwater lake just east of the city centre is one of Arrecife's main hubs.

It's filled with colourful boats and resident seagulls, and perfect for a snack or drink at any time of day.
