For those who like warmer areas, the Spanish ecological resort located in rural Lanzarote is a great choice. It is located 2km from the town of Arriete and one of the most famous beaches, and the cabins where you will sleep are different, so you can choose from Mongolian tents with furniture from Bali to somewhat more classic wooden houses. They get electricity from the sun and wind.
