I highly recommend visiting this place and experience this overlooking space from the northern part of the island for those who love sightseeing just like me.
From Arrecife, it takes approximately a 34-minute drive to go to El Mirador del Rio in a private car. The island is small, so it will be easier to rent a car, or you might want to book a tour package. It saves a lot of time and will give you a chance to visit more places in Lanzarote.
There are two sections in El Mirador del Rio; the paid and free access where you can see the stunning view of La Graciosa Island. There are a restaurant and souvenir shop in the paid area.
The free space is on the left side of the paid area. Below are some photos we took from this stunning view.
If you are staying for a couple of days or weeks in Lanzarote, you may want to visit La Graciosa Island as well. There is a small town on the island of La Graciosa and can enjoy swimming at the beach. A ferry travels from Lanzarote (ÓRZOLA) to La Graciosa (CALETA DE SEBO) for approx. 30 minutes.
