If you had to describe the Canaries’ most easterly isle in one word, it’d have to be dramatic. You can’t go far without clocking a soaring cliff or volcanic peak. That said, it’s the beaches that draw people in, and there are about 30 kilometres’ worth of them – not to mention off-the-beaten-track spots that never made the official list.
Party-hard Puerto del Carmen
Puerto del Carmen is home to a 6-kilometre stretch of sand that melts into ultra-calm seas. The resort itself is pretty lively, thanks to a 2-mile party strip lined with shops, bars and clubs. On the flip side, you can skip the neon altogether and head for the old town’s tapas bars.
Laid-back Costa Teguise
For something more low-key, Costa Teguise is a good bet. It’s really popular with windsurfers, but is also home to the island’s only waterpark, an 18-hole golf course and a clutch of shops. Three beaches are thrown in, including the white-sand stretch at Los Charcos.
Traditional Playa Blanca
To get a taste of traditional Lanzarote, try Playa Blanca, which means ‘white beach’. Waterside restaurants line the prom here, and the harbour is all quaint, old-world buildings. On the subject of buildings, you’ll be hearing a lot about a certain Cesar Manrique. The architect lobbied for strict planning rules to protect his home turf, and did a sterling job.
