The Lanzarote region
Lanzarote is not far from the African Continent, so we have the luxury of temperate weather all year round, thus making it a very popular holiday destination for Northern European travelers in particular.
As with other islands in the Canaries, Lanzarote is volcanic in origin, with the last eruptions in the 18th and 19th centuries, which can be clearly seen throughout the Island.
PLACES TO VISIT.
There are many places to visit, and some of the coach tours are very good, specially the Grand tour. Sometimes though, its nice to explore the Island by car and do your own thing, without the rush of a coach trip, and discover some places that the trips don't go to. El Golfo is a nearby village, were the coach trips go to see the Green Lagoon, but missing out the village itself, which is a shame as its got loads of good sea-view restaurants, and its a typical small ,Canarian town.
Travelling North towards Teguise, head for Nazaret, where you will find one of our favourite places to visit, Lag-O-Mar. Set in an old quarry in an elevated position with great views, legend has it that Omar Sharif owned the house for 1 day, only to lose it in a game of cards. Apparently he was so upset, he swore never to return to Lanzarote again. Teguise the old capital is best known for its Sunday Market, the largest on the Island. If you drive there yourself, there is easy parking as you approach the town, were for a small fee you can park up. There is no parking in the town itself on a Sunday. Teguise is also worth visiting in the week, when it returns to a sleepy traditional town, great just to wander through the cobbled streets. Worth finding is an artists house , were he has some amazing, and unusual exhibits in his garden.
Guatiza, is home to the Jardin De Cactus, which was Cesar Manriques last work. It really is worth visiting, as it has a stunning collection of cact, that has been collected from all over the world.. Just a short drive further on is Arrieta, a small fishing village. We use to go there quite frequently, as do a lot of locals, as there is a really good beach restaurant near the small pier, which serves excellent food, and is very reasonably priced.
Further North is Jameos del Aqua and Cuevde los Verdes, both on the well trodden tourist map, but well worth a visit all the same.look out for the small albino crabs in the small lake, as they are unique to Lanzarote.
At the top of the Island you will find Mirador del Rio, with great views towards La Graciosa, and also if you love driving, some spectacular hairpin bends with shear drops, great fun if you wish to scare the wife! Another great drivers road is the LZ30, from Uga to Teguise. It is a recent road which goes through the wine growing region, La Geria. There are quite a few Bodegas on the way, were you can sample the wine, and catch something to eat, plus the scenery is magnificent, with very little traffic.
Not to be missed is the 'Montanas del Fuego', or Fire Mountain in Timanfaya National Park, where you can see hundreds of the volcanic craters.This awe inspiring landscape is the result of eruptions which buried a third of the Island between 1730 and 1736. Visitors canexplore on foot, by bus or even on camelback. If you are feeling a bit hungary you can sample food that has been cooked over a thermal BBQ that emanates from below the ground!
Playa Blanca is a wonderful town, tranquil and not as brash as some of its northern neighbours. There are some wonderful beaches, safe and with loads of activities to enjoy.There is also the world famous Papagayo beaches, totally non-commercial, and the best on the island.
There are many bars and restaurants in the town, too many perhaps to try them all, but give it a go all the same!
Very close to the Villa, you will find two excellent Restaurants, 'La Flamenca' and 'Travisano', both recommended.
Running parallel to the sea front prom,there is a pedestrianized area, again with many shops and restaurants.
Just along the coast from the town, you will find the Marina Rubican. as well as many moored yachts there, you will find designer shops, bars and restaurants, and also a market on Wednesday and Saturday.
There is now a brand new Water Park, and only 5 minutes drive away from the Villa, brilliant for all the Family.
There are some of the best beaches on Lanzarote here in Playa Blanca. The nearest to the villa, and within a good walk away, is the Natura Beach, only small and not the best, but not crowded, and its near a café and bar, and also near the Mulata Centre.The Flamingo Beach is the next one along, only recently reopened after it was washed away by a storm, and worth a visit, and again near bars and restaurants. Town beach is as its name suggests, right in the centre of town, with all its amenities, though you do feel you are in a goldfish bowl at times, as its so close to the promenade and shops. The best beach near the town is the next one along, Playa Dorada Beach, which is in front of the Princess Yaiza. There are many water sports there, banana boats, para -gliding etc, and there are also life-guards present. You often get a Chinese girl offering a massage, I have to say, having had one, she is very good, and worth the money. Further a field, you have the marvellous Papagayo Beaches. These are in a protected area, and so are uncommerialised, no sun beds here, but the beaches are great nevertheless.You can get there by car by a long dirt track, and pay in the car park, not only are you not supposed to in a hire car, but its an awful drive along a bumpy road. There are other alternatives to get there, one is to drive to the Papagayo Arena, and park up, and walk to the beach, 10 minutes. If you are feeling energetic you can cycle there, wouldn't consider walking from the villa, too much of a hike. You could get the bus to Las Coloradas, and again walk from the Papagayo Arena. The way we like to go, is to get a water taxi from the Harbour, and then they will transfer you to the beach by an inflatable dingy, great fun.
There are many places to hire cars and we can hire bikes for you.
