Great sandy beaches

The Island of Lanzarote has some beautiful beaches and most of the best beaches are in the area of Playa Blanca. The cove beaches of Papagayo just along the coast from the small seaside town of Playa Blanca are some of the best bathing beaches in the whole of the Canary Islands. These beaches where once the home of a few hippies back in the 70’s who set up home in the caves above the beach for most of the winter months. However the Hippies have gone and now holiday mackers from all over Europe have taken there place. Still today a few people decide to go with the hipie way of life and spend there days sunbathing naked on these beautiful beaches. The beach in Playa Blanca itself is a cresent of soft powder sand with good safe bathing. Many of the other beaches on the Island are man made and offer all tourist facilities. Arrieta lies on the north west coast of Lanzarote. Here is a small selection of beaches with a rocky and wild sea, this area is popular with wind surfers and water sports enthusiasts. Great place to enjoy a delicious Pallela in one of the local seafront restaurants.

There is a dive school based in Playa Blanca which has expert tuition and specialises in teaching children. They have all the most up to date equipment and offer courses for all levels from beginner to the very advanced. The conditions around Lanzarote are some of the best you can find in the canaries, clear water and mild sea temperatures make it ideal. Because of the volcanic history of the Island, it offers some very interesting underwater scenery with lava rivers, caves and unusual rock formations.

Golf.

There are two courses of on Lanzarote, one situated at Costa Tequise and the other at Puerto Del Carmen. Both courses have some testing holes but in the main they are more for if your missing a round of golf than for Lanzarote to be a golfing destination. However one very good thing to take into account is that there is normally little problem in arranging a tee-time.

Cycling.

This sport seems to be going from strength to strength. Over the past few years it has gained in popularity and Lanzarote is a perfect destination to enjoy this particular sport. The Island is mainly flat with a good quality road network that isn’t over run with traffic. The mild winter months are probably the best time to enjoy as during the summer it can reach as high as 35-40c. Cycle tours are also organised on the Island. Various types of bike hire are available.
