Just on the outskirt of the capital city of Arrecife and the Arrecife International airport is the small town of Macher. Macher is also in the Tias district and is one of those towns that you stumble upon perhaps en route to the more larger and popular resorts which are only a few minutes away.
For anyone thinking about visiting Macher you would find the town is a very quiet one that is unspoilt and still steep in traditional. Those who visit Macher are obviously looking for a holiday away from the madding crowd.
Macher attracts the more mature traveller; the younger crowd preferring the other resorts nearby. Fun and entertainment when you visit Macher really happens in the nearby towns such as Puerto Calero and Puerto del Carmen for instance. Puerto Calero is five minutes away from Macher and it offers a marina as well as restaurants and bars galore in a lavish setting.
While in Macher though, expect to stay at villas and apartments which are tastefully built and which offer several amenities. You prepare your own meals at the apartment or villa if you so incline and as you get around in Macher you would see that there is a supermarket that is conveniently located which sells a variety of items that you can fill up your pantry with.
Roam a little if you will and get into the other resorts and towns where great attractions await you. Among them is the Canarian Cetacean Museum which is the only museum of its kind in all of Spain. Here the visitor is given the opportunity to get an extensive amount of information on the lives of dolphins and whales.
At the museum one can view many exhibits and pretty much get a feel of these two sea creatures in terms of their way they communicate and even their habits. Sit on golden sands and enjoy your day at the beaches nearby. There is actually a few beaches some 10 minutes away in Puerto del Carmen which are clean with waters that are the right temperature for swimming.
This location is also the place for some fun water sporting activities as well. Further afield you can continue your holiday fun at the Arrecife Museum of Contemporary Art. This museum showcases modern art at its best from International artists. Finally dont miss a visit to the renowned Timanfaya National Park which is accessible either by a coach or camel ride up the winding path. This road would take you to what has been described as a volcanic field of sorts.
For the more mature holiday maker who wants to get away from the cold winters, Macher in Lanzarote may be just the place to do so. Quiet and off the beaten path, Macher is for those who prefer to stay at a resort that is peaceful and tranquil and still have the option of dabbling in the delights of another lively resort.
On any given day there isnt really much happening in Macher; the real entertainment can be found in neighbouring resorts like Puerto Calero and Puerto del Carmen. Because of the serenity in Macher, it is one of those places where a few retirees have chosen to settle and they have taken things even further by purchasing holiday homes there.
For those without a holiday home in Macher, you can stay at one of the apartments and villas that are here. Bright and brilliantly coloured flowers accentuate the garden area at the apartments and villas here. Inside there are several rooms with beds that sleep both adults and children.
Some features at the villas for instance include stunning balcony views, use of a swimming pool and sporting activities such as table tennis and basketball. Take your holiday to another level by visiting Puerto del Carmen and Puerto Calero, two resorts which are the closest to Macher and which offer an interesting part of your holiday.
There are excursions leaving out from your Macher villa everyday giving you the opportunity to indulge in a lot of activities and sights. There is a beautiful marina in Puerto Calero which is situated close to several outdoor restaurants and bars serving both International and local cuisine. Fish is a staple on this side of the world so it would not be hard for you to find exclusive fish restaurants here.
You can visit these resorts for water sporting fun since there is a lot of that happening there. One can go fishing in search of the big catch or take one of the chartered luxury liners to view the majestic island of Lanzarote. Go sun bathing on the sandy beaches in Puerto del Carmen or even take a romantic stroll on the harbour there.
We promise you it would be very therapeutic. A satisfied night of entertainment is guaranteed at the neighbouring resorts of Macher and you are in for a treat as there are several late night discos and bars.
Get your shopping for souvenir and gift items done at the boutiques and shops while you are there and remember that you get to enjoy duty-free shopping on a variety of items. A weekly market in Arrecife would put you in touch with several vendors who allow you to haggle for your desire price on local and brand name items.
