The Island: Lanzarote is a fascinating island where man and nature have created some spectacular places to visit. There are excellent roads to all parts of the island and a hire car will enable you to have an easier trip to and from the airport as well as to discover areas that you should consider visiting. There is a manual of information in the villa that lists the main attractions together with other recommendations for places to eat , etc. For golfers there is an 18 hole course at Costa Tequise, about 45 minutes drive. You can book boat trips at the local marinas and there is a 20 minute fast ferry to Fuertaventura from Playa Blanca port. The climate, its beaches and the ever-present stamp of artist Cesar Manrique make this a privileged destination.
Playa Blanca is an ideal location for those people wanting a quieter holiday but if you crave for some night-life, Puerto del Carmen is about a 25 minute drive and has a vast selection of lively bars and nightclubs, restaurants and shops.
OTHER ACTIVITIES: A five minute walk from the villa is El Pueblo with the excellent ROPERS SUPERMARKET providing a superb selection of fresh meat & fresh fish. Vegetables, fruit and much more. There is also a couple of cafes which provide a variety of drinks, snacks etc. CHILDRENS PLAY AREA ; there is also a gym. El Castillo hotel is a lovely place to have a drink, listen to some music & watch the sun going down!
5 minute or so drive away (or 20 minute walk along the Coastal path) is the Rubicon Marina with a bowling alley, pitch & putt, variety of shops and restuarants to while away the day or evening in a picturesque setting.
At the old capital of Teguise is the famous Sunday market to spend a few of your Euros & the Aquapark. Go-karting, camel rides and cooking your lunch over the heat of the volcano at Fire Mountain is only a brief selection of what is on offer for you in Lanzarote. There is plenty of information in the villa.
CAR HIRE: Car hire is recommended to enable you to see what the whole of the island has to offer - ranging from the greener part of the Island in the North with some lovely natural white beaches for sunbathing or surfing. The vineyard region in La Geria where you can visit a vineyard and be in a lovely place for a spot of lunch & the odd glass of wine or two. Volcanic landscapes, Fire Mountain with it's heat or the underground lakes and caves with 'blind crabs' - all worth a visit if the sunbathing and relaxing has got too much for you! Please don't forget your camera.
