In the evening hours when you take a walk along the restaurants at the beach you can watch a lot of quite talented surfers. Not only in Tenerife but in all of the Canary Island surfing is quite popular although the northern coasts are not for beginners because of the high surge of the waves.
The lovely center of the main town of Lanzarote builds a small anchorage which can only be entered by very small boats. Around the bay a lot of small restaurants of all price categories line up. A marvelous but affordable Italian restaurant is the Divina Italia (el Charco) in the north of the bay.
