Mirador del Rio

Mirador del Rio, Lanzarote

The street LZ 202 provides a direct link to the northern most point of Lanzarote, Mirador del Rio. If approaching from Cueva de los Verdes or Jameos del Agua, a short detour along the coast is recommended. Take LZ 1 towards Órzola and enjoy the beautiful coastal route. Just before Órzola is the beach – Charca de la Novia, gently sloping and sandy, perfect for families with small children. In the shallow water they can safely run around. The contrast between the white sand, the black lava rocks and the bright turquoise blue of the water, is astounding.

From the small town Órzola, Mirador del Rio is signposted and easy to find. Without the signs posts and parked cars, it would be easy to the miss this work of art. Merged with nature – natural rock formations, Manrique yet again created harmony and balance. At the heart of Mirador del Rio is a large hall, flooded with light through enormous windows. There is also a small cafe. Like a magnet, one finds oneself attracted to the light – the windows, where  a spectacular view over the neighboring island of La Graciosa awaits – a perfect place to sit at a table enjoy a coffee and the breathtaking views.

From the terrace one has an even better view of “La Graciosa” and also of the salt fields of El Río. As if on a silver platter, the island with 700 inhabitants presents itself. Just two kilometers from Lanzarote and a 20 minutes crossing from Órzola, the village of Caleta de Sebo, one of the two inhabited villages on La Graciosa is visible.

Gaze a little further into the distance, you’ll see 3 more islands, all uninhabited – Montaña Clara, Roque del Oeste and Alegranza.
On the upper floor of the Mirador lies the souvenir shop, light-filled and beautifully designed.
