The Lanzarote region

For those who prefer not to hire a car it is possible to get from the airport to the villa using public transport. Further information on request. There is now a water park in Playa blanca, 20 euros for adults and 14 for children and that's for the whole day.
For those who prefer not to hire a car or has reduced mobility there is a bus stop by Villa del Sur which networks around the seafront, town, marina rubicon, harbour and bus station and runs twice an hour. The bus station in Playa Blanca town provides a regular service to towns north of the island including Arrecife Coach station . A well stocked hiperdino supermarket and snack bar is close to the villa supermarket,.
Playa Blanca happens to be the most recently developed resort on the island. Consequently it has become an attractive holiday destination which has learnt from the mistakes made by other resorts and is more tranquil and less noisy . There has been a good investment in infrastructure in Playa Blanca as well as holiday villas and hotels.
The newly built promenade is the heart of the place for visitors with its myriad of cafes, restaurants, shops and bars. At midday when everyone has returned from the beach, the promenade walk is full of people, where all sorts of languages can be heard in Babylonian fashion.
The new pedestrian walkway is right through the centre of the village where you will find many shops, restaurants, banks, bars and supermarkets where one can wander about and look for gifts to take home. There are cafes and restaurants to suit every taste. Despite all this Playa Blanca retains the atmosphere of a small and charming village.
The nicest beach is the Playa Dorada, or Golden Beach, which is clean and being partly manmade is well protected and safe. The people who visit it usually spend the whole day there, and is recommended for families and children as it is busy but broad, there is diving, paracraft, banana sky bus, jet sky.
Beyond the harbour you will find another beach called Playa Flamingo, with a lively atmosphere all around.
The Playa Blanca / Marina Rubicon area
In the evening the Marina Rubicon is idea for groups of friends couples and families who are looking for restaurants, bars, studios and boutiques or just stop for a coffee glass of wine or dessert within view of the sea or just roam around the trendy shops and galleries which stay open til 10 pm. For nightlife head for the Jungle Bar which has evening entertainment and singers.
A childrens playground and cafe bar is less than a 10 minute walk together with a new modern shopping centre called El Pueblo with fashion, gift shops and quality restaurants and bars. A supermarket, 'Ropers' that sells virtually everything from an amazing variety of fresh and frozen fish/meat/veg/salad to local delicacies is also situated in El Pueblo. The sports bar has everything from Sky sports to good quality well priced snacks available every day. The local beach is ideal for fishing and rock pooling for the kids.
The new Marina Rubicon makes Playa Blanca a more upmarket resort and is only a 15-20 minute walk or 5 minute drive from Villa Citrus. Also from our villa in a different direction is a new Shopping Centre and a luxurious 5 star hotel Dream Castillo which offers spa treatments if you fancy pampering yourself.
The Marina is enticing at night with many upmarket trendy designer boutiques, shops, galleries - perfect for roaming around after a satisfying meal in one of the many restaurants or just to sit and enjoy a coffee/dessert or a glass of wine and watch the yachts and people go by.
A recently opened restaurant called El Mirador has sea views and sun loungers, so it's possible to have a cocktail whilst watching the sunset in total comfort whilst listening to music.
If you prefer the villa has a good supply of varied dvds and there is an English Speaking Disney Channel on the tv.
We can personally recommend Ropers Supermarket (13 minute walk from the villa in the El Pueblo Shopping ~Centre) for good quality and varied selection of meat, chicken, ribs, fish, fresh salad, beer and wine for a perfect bbq, but don't forget to buy the bricks and long matches. The villa is equipped with bbq and bbq cooking implements. But please remember to clean the bbq afterwards or our managers can do it for 50 euros.

Very nice, neat and tidy home, perfect for walking to the Coastal Path which leads you to the Rubicon Marina. Very quite in residental area, no noise whatsoever. We had a little problem, but that was sorted out with little inconvenience to us by Mike, who keeps an eye on the villa and lives a few doors away, so no problem. We took advantage of the heating for the pool this year, which was well worth it. Great option for some Winter Sun. Little word to the Ladies, you do need a little Jacket for the evenings, I found it a little cold this year once the sun had gone down.
