There are three main resort areas in Lanzarote. Costa Teguise is a purpose built holiday resort in the North East part of Lanzarote.The resort is based around the main man made beach of Las Cucharas with a wealth of bars and restaurants to choose from. Wind surfing is all the rage here with the constant breeze coming off the sea.Ideal for beginners and experts alike.There are smaller beaches in and around the resort. Aqua Park Costa Teguise can be found here as well as Lanzarote`s one and only Golf course.
Puerto del Carmen is the largest and perhaps busiest resort area on Lanzarote and can be found in between Costa Teguise and it`s rather more sedate neighbour Playa Blanca.
Puerto del Carmen is very busy with an assortment of hotels and apartment accomodation.The bars and restaurants stretch right along the sea front. It is just a short 15 minute drive from Arrecife airport.Playa Pocillos and Matagorda have been developed in more recent years making the resort stretch along the promenade for over 5 miles. La Santa is a sporting resort on the West Coast often favoured by professional athletes for warm weather winter training.
A forty five minute drive from Arrecife brings you to Playa Blanca in the south of the island. Just 30 years ago this was the smallest resort with just one commercial centre and the small fishing harbour/ferry port.Playa Blanca now stretches from the Lighthouse in the west almost to the Papagayo Beaches in the East.There is a paved promenade the whole length of the resort and a brand new Marina was opened roughly 10 years ago. Marina Rubicon is now part and parcel of the resort.
Puerto Calero is an up market resort built round a marina just south of Puerto del Carmen. There are also lots of small villages in and around the island where both foreigners and Lanzarote natives live. Villas can be hired in these villages of a very high standard and at very reasonable prices. Most well known villages are Tias, Nazaret, Femes, Macher, Soo and the islands former capital and all day market venue Teguise.
Why Not? It`s Sunny most of the year. Car hire is relatively cheap. The best beaches in Europe can be found at Papagayo.Water sports, hiking, mountain biking are all available. The island is full of interesting places to visit whether you are 2 or 82. Lanzarote is relatively small yet has a varied amount of accomodation to suit all budgets.You can travel from one end of the island in an afternoon. Chill out at Famara where all the surfer crowd hang out. Have a meal overlooking the grim volcanic Lanzarote landscape as Atlantic waves crash in at El Golfo.
Public transport on Lanzarote is very good and the roads are all tarmaced and well maintained. Take a trip across the narrow strait to Fuerteventura or a water taxi to the Papagayo Beaches. Play golf on the challenging Teguise course with a lunar landscape backdrop.Visit the desert island of Graciosa by taking a Ferry from Orzola to Caleta Cebo. Here there are no roads.Enjoy Lanzarote`s original water park at Costa Teguise or the newly opened parks at Paradise Island and Lanzasur in Playa Blanca.
Lanzarote is famous of course for its unique volcanic landscape which native artist Cesar Manrique has harnessed as the main tourist draw on Lanzarote. You can visit Manrique`s house , uniquely cut into the volcanic landscape and experience his art all over the island. He designed the restaurant in Islote de Hierro which sits on top of the scene of the 18th century Lanzarote eruptions which increased the land area of the holiday island by a third and destroyed more than thirteen villages including Timanfaya which the National Park is named after. Lanzarote is a photographer`s paradise. The bright and unique light set against the bleak volcanic landscape inspires people. Check out fantastic images of the island at Danistein.com.
