Yé and the North of Lanzarote
Finca La Corona is located in the northern-most tip of Lanzarote, just outside of the small village of Yé. This village, home to less than 100 inhabitants, sits just at the foothills of the Corona volcano, the oldest on the island. The Corona’s last eruption, which occurred over 3,000 years ago, covered most of the northern part of the island in volcanic ash and debris, providing a truly unique landscape around both the village of Yé and Finca La Corona.
Haría, Orzola, and Arrieta
Haría, Orzola, and Arrieta are three villages in the northern end of Lanzarote, all less than a 10 minute drive away from Finca La Corona. These villages exemplify both the greener north of the island (Haría), as well as the traditional fishing villages (Orzola and Arrieta), and offer visitors a variety of restaurants and destinations.
Haría, also known as the valley of a thousand palms, is a village located just south of Finca La Corona, and one of the oldest villages on the island. This area offers some of the most spectacular and breathtaking views on the island, particularly during the winter months when the seasonal rainfall turns the northern portion of the island into a green oasis. Haría is also home to César Manrique’s last residence, after leaving his original home to the foundation that took his name.
The coastal villages of Orzola and Arrieta offer not only great views of the cerulean blue ocean surrounding Lanzarote, but are also great places for a seaside lunch or dinner at a traditional restaurant such as Amanecer (Arrieta). Orzola is also the docking point of a ferry connecting Lanzarote and the small island of La Graciosa, the ideal destination for a mid-day excursion or hike.
