Fashion & Shopping in Lanzarote

In Lanzarote you will find several shopping and leisure centres as well as an array of stores and boutiques selling all kinds of goods: from perfumes, cloths, jewellery and electrical equipments that can be purchased at very reasonable prices to local produce and handmade crafts.

The shopping districts are located in the main resorts (Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise and Playa Blanca), in Arrecife, capital of the island and in Playa Honda that hosts one of the largest shopping centre of Lanzarote.

The most colourful shopping opportunities are provided by Teguise Sunday Market where you can buy many interesting craft items, souvenirs and local produce (wine, cheese and mojo sauces) which make tasty reminders of your stay.

It's worth noting that if you want to pay by credit or debit card you will normally — as a security measure — be asked to show your passport. Some, but not all, places will accept the photo part of your European driving licence.

Where You can shop?

Town Centres

Arrecife, the capital of Lanzarote, offers a wide variety of shopping opportunities, with many of the existing shops being updated and national brand names moving in, it now reflects the more cosmopolitan make up of the island.

Tias offers a nice selection of smaller boutique style, shops, however the more traditional centres of Yaiza and San Bartolomé tend to cater mainly for the local market and its everyday needs.

Shopping Centres

There are two main shopping centres, the Deiland Centre which is near the airport in Playa Honda and the modern Biosfera Plaza in the Old Town of Puerto del Carmen.

Biosfera Plaza

Biosfera Plaza shopping centre The relatively new Biosfera Centre is especially good for clothes shopping and is home to branches of Zara, Mango, Foot Locker and locally popular outlets such as Pull and Bear. The Centre is easy to find as it is located right on the cusp between the Old and New Town in Puerto del Carmen.


Deiland is based in Playa Honda, which is close to Arrecife Airport and is easily reached by bus from either Puerto del Carmen or Costa Teguise. Deiland caters primarily to a more local (as opposed to tourist) market and the shops here reflect this as there are no international retailers present, with a few exceptions such as The Body Shop and Burger King. Deiland is also home to a bowling alley and cinema.


Not a shopping centre but the central shopping zone in Arrecife, with all the hustle and bustle that you’d associate with a busy High Street in the UK – depending on when you visit. During the week the shops are open from approximately 09.00 until 14.00 – they then close for three hours and re-open from approximately 17.00 - 20.00. On Saturdays opening times are approximately 09.00 to 14.00.

Food and Groceries

There are many places to stock up if you are self-catering. Most of the resort towns have a numer of small supermarkets which have a reasonable selection, although the prices are not always the cheapest.

For better value and wider choice, you could pay a visit to the Vivo Supermarket, which is opposite the airport in Playa Honda or Hiperdino in the Deiland Centre.

There are also other large supermarkets in Arrecife such as Eurospar and Hiperdino if you are prepared to take a little time to find them.

Congelados Roper at Playa Honda, which not only offers frozen food, but also has fresh fish, delicatessen and butchers counters. There is also an excellent fruit and veg section.

Tax Free Status

Lanzarote and the Canary Islands enjoy a unique Duty Free tax status within the European Union.

As a result, items such as alcohol, tobacco and perfume are considerably cheaper here than in mainland Spain or the rest of Europe.

Alcohol And Tobacco - The Best Prices

Generally speaking, these items cost less when purchased from local shops and supermarkets than at Arrecife airport or on board your plane.

There are often further price variations between supermarkets based within tourist resorts and those located outside.

So for the very best prices it is advisable to head for the larger outlets of chains such as EuroSpar (main branches in Arrecife) and HiperDino (main branch within the Deiland Shopping Centre, Playa Honda).

Supermarkets in resort are, as a rule, open from 8am-10pm 365 days a year. Similar hours apply to larger supermarkets outside the resorts but it is important to note that they are closed on Sundays and public holidays.
