The Cactus Garden In Lanzarote

Share

This time last week I was in Lanzarote, enjoying wall to wall sunshine, culture, great company and incredible food!

Our first stop was Cactus Garden In Lanzarote, Jardin de Cactus. Developed in collaboration with César Manrique the Cactus Garden hosts over 10,000 plants.

Now if you are similar me and like to black death to all plant life, cacti are your friends. I have two and have managed to keep them alive for 2 years!

Visiting a landscape full of over 1000 species of cacti is a real treat. The detail in every single plant and the sheer beauty of the Lanzarote Gardens, set out in the stunning volcanic terrain, makes it the sort of place you just want to stop and take it all in for a while.

If you want to see me create my projects, follow me on Tik Tok and Instagram.

The perfect vantage point is at the top of the Cactus gardens in the picture perfect windmill. Which offers with the most breathtaking views over the surrounding region.

I often look at natural wonders and just marvel at how clever nature is. Cacti are built to live with virtually no water, have built-in protection and host the cochineal beetles. Who are a natural source of red colouring, which is still used in certain items of food and drink.

You cannot visit Lanzarote without paying a visit to the Cactus gardens. It’s just a shame I didn’t get to bring one home for my desk and random flat lays.

How much is admission to the Cactus Garden?: €5 adults, €2.50 children

The Cactus Garden is Open: Daily 10.00 – 17.45
