El Faro

El Faro is a family-run enterprise founded more than 45 years ago by a couple of cheese makers. Today their work is continued by their sons, operating in the same way as their parents used to. Tradition and passion make this shop and its products well-known in Lanzarote.


Although Lanzarote is no longer a tax-free zone, you'll still find low prices on items like alcohol, perfume, Cuban cigars and cigarettes. For a unique island souvenir, consider purchasing local lacework, baskets or pottery crafted by the indigenous Guanche people. Shops can be found in all the main resorts. In Arrecife, most shops are concentrated on Calle Leon y Castillo. Puerto del Carmen features the Biosfera Shopping Centre (home to clothing shops like Zara), while Playa Honda offers a variety of shops, cosy cafes, and a cinema in the Deiland Centre.
