The Lanzarote Region
Lanzarote is situated just 70 miles off the coast of Africa and is the most easterly of the Canary Islands. The island is 37 miles (60km) long and 12 miles (20 km) wide, making it the fourth largest island in the Canaries.
Lanzarote enjoys a mild dry climate with average daytime temperatures ranging from about 21C (70F) in January to 29C (84F) in August. Annual rainfall is just 140mm (5.5 inches). This makes Lanzarote the perfect year-round destination.
As with the other Canary Islands, Lanzarote is Volcanic in origin. Due to the recent eruptions during the 18th and 19th centuries, many parts of Lanzarote appear to be from another world, often described as 'lunar' or 'Martian', so much so that parts of 'Planet of the Apes' were shot here. The dry climate (and lack of erosion) means that the Volcanic Landscape appears much as it did just after the eruptions.
Amongst the many stunning Volcanic features of Lanzarote is the longest Volcanic Tunnel in the world, the Atlantida Tunnel, which is over 7 km long and includes the La Cueva de los Verdes and Jameos del Agua.
Despite the Volcanic nature of the island, Lanzarote has several beautiful white beaches such as at Playa Blanca and Papagayo.
Local authority regulations on the amount and style of development mean that there is no billboard advertising and no high rise buildings in Lanzarote (with the exception of the Grand Hotel in Arrecife).
Puerto del Carmen Area
Puerto del Carmen is situated on the south-east side of Lanzarote, was originally a fishing village and has grown to become one of the island's finest beach resorts.
This villa is located in the prestigious area of Risco Prieto, an upmarket residential area near the Old Town where the individual villas will suit those who want quiet and seclusion but still be walking distance from town.
Harbour: The Old Town is set around the harbour and offers a huge selection of excellent restaurants with freshly caught fish often a speciality. Great for lunch, dinner or a drink while an adventure playground keeps the children amused. Lots of choice of boat trips from the harbour including trips on a submarine, scuba diving, fishing trips, pleasure cruises and the Water Taxi to the marina at Puerto Calero. The area is popular for strolling and a popular pastime is watching the men on the water front playing boules in the evenings.
Shopping: The Old Town is also well served with shops and the new Biosfera Shopping Plaza, a 13 minute walk (0.9km), hosts such well known names as Zara and Timberland and is a pleasure to visit – a good place to cool off on a hot day because it is air conditioned. It has four floors of shops, restaurants and amusements including the Starlight Open Air cinema playing 2 English movies each evening, a billiard and pool hall, crazy golf, and Cine6D virtual reality motion rides.
Beaches: Playa Chica, a 17-18 minute walk (1.2km) is a pretty little cove surrounding by volcanic rocks, which is perfect for snorkelling and diving (a dive school is located here). Other sports enjoyed at Playa Chica are parascending, banana boat rides, single and double jet-skiing, Crazy UFO and Fly-boarding. The main beach, Playa Grande, a 20-22 minute walk (1.6km) is a long stretch of fine grain sand with calm waters, a very gentle shelf and little current so paddling and swimming are very safe. This lively resort has a beach road with shops, bars and restaurants along one side and the wide, golden sand of Playa Grande with a promenade along the other. There are sunbeds and umbrellas for hire for those who wish to relax or water sports for those who seek more activity. The Puerto del Carmen beaches fly the Blue Flag awarded by the EEC for cleanliness and lack of contamination. A variety of sports including tennis and squash are available at the sports centre near the Fariones Hotel.
Rancho Texas Park: a huge theme park with diverse wildlife and a wild west theme 7 minutes drive north-east (5km).
Lanzarote Golf: a public 18-hole course - 8 minute drive (4.8km).
Puerto Calero: 30-50 minute walk (4km) go west along the coastal walk-way and you will reach the marina at Puerto Calero, where there are lovely restaurants and gorgeous shopping. This walk is very popular with our clients. There is also a water taxi from the Old Town harbour if you don’t fancy the walk either one way or both ways. The restaurants in Puerto Calero are perfect for a long lazy lunch. The water taxi back costs 6 Euros and the last one leaves about 5pm.
Gran Karting: a go-karting club 15 minutes drive north-east (13km).
Aqualava Water Park: a geothermally-heated water park 30 minutes drive south-west (25km).
Timanfaya National Park: the natural wonder of Lanzarote has a unique 'Martian' landscape and rare plant species. To the El Diablo restaurant, a 30 minute drive (22km). A unique experience is it to take a camel ride across the volanic landscape, which is a 20 minute drive (17km) away.
Markets: every Friday 10am - 4pm about 100 stalls set up at the Plaza Varadero near the Old Town harbour for locally sourced fruit, vegetables and flowers, as well as handmade craft items, jewellery and clothes (600m). At nearby Tias, the Saturday morning 9am - 2pm Farmers market is an ideal place to purchase fresh locally produced vegetables much cheaper than the supermarkets (10 minute drive 6km north-east). Also, the biggest open-air street market in Lanzarote is on Sunday mornings 9am - 2pm in Teguise (28 minute drive, 21km, north-east).
Festivals: late February, revel at the Carnival or if you’re visiting in July, don’t miss the folklore performances, folk singing, dancing and vibrant processions at the Feast of St Carmen, patron saint of the city and fishermen.
Fly to Arrecife from all major airports in UK: Gatwick, Luton, Stansted, Birmingham, Manchester, Bournemouth, Cardiff, Glasgow and many more.
Airlines include, BA, Ryan Air, Easyjet, Jet2 and Thomas Cook.
Car hire is relatively cheap in Lanzarote. A hire car is the best option for discovering the remote wilderness regions. It only takes about 40 minutes to cross the entire island from North to South by car, and about 25 minutes across.

We offer an airport transfer service run by a reliable local company who will meet you at Lanzarote airport. They will transport you by minibus to your villa or apartment. On your departure day, at a pre-arranged time, they will collect you and return back to the airport for your flight home.
