The Lanzarote Region
Situated approximately 60 miles off the West coast of Africa and 700 miles South West of the Southern tip of Spain/Portugal, Lanzarote enjoys one of the driest and sunniest climates of the seven Canary Islands. It is roughly 36 miles long and 12 miles wide. The temperature does not vary much from approximately 20°C in January to 30°C in August. The golden sandy beaches of Puerto del Carmen, Papagayo and Famara are one of the main attractions for all year round sun-worshippers. The unusual "lunar landscape" of the island and Cesar Manrique’s artistic and architectural influence offers a melange of unique sightseeing opportunities whether you choose to go it alone with a rent-a-car or on one of the many excursions.
The islanders or "Conejeros" have prevented Lanzarote from becoming spoilt by applying restrictions insuring low level development. The result is a clean, low-key and uncrowded island offering an atmosphere in which to relax, unwind and laze in the sun. It has also helped Lanzarote gain a reputation as one of the most popular holiday destinations by the most discerning of holidaymakers. The island has completely crystal clear unpolluted waters, lying hundreds of miles away from any industrial development. This makes it a favourite destination for those interested in water sports such as windsurfing, deep sea fishing, sailing, surfing, snorkelling and scuba diving.
The tall volcanic mountains offer the ideal platform for parascending and paragliding but for most of us they are the perfect place to admire the stunning views and unrivalled sunsets. Excellent facilities are also available for other sports such as tennis, squash, horse riding and golf on the attractive 18 hole golf course in Costa Teguise.
There are plenty of places to see if you are interested in exploring the island. The Timanfaya National Park (Montana del Fuego) set in the extraordinary lava fields of Yaiza is the most popular and gives you the opportunity to climb the Fire Mountain on the camel trek. There is also the underground lake in Jameos del Agua as well as the Mythical Greens Cave (cueva de los Verdes), the cactus gardens (Jardin de Cactus) and of course the magnificent house of Cesar Manrique which blends and harmonises art and architecture with the volcanic landscape of Lanzarote.
At the core of the island is Teguise, the old capital, which retains all the charm of Lanzarote and is an insight into the islands’ history and culture. It is also the setting for the Sunday market where the stalls are crammed with leather, lace and crafts. Further North is the tranquil village of Haria, set in the valley of the Thousand Palms, probably the most fertile part of Lanzarote. Mirador del Rio gives you the opportunity to admire the little island "La Graciosa" from Lanzarote’s highest cliff tops. Orzola and El Golfo, the most Northerly and most Westerly villages, respectively, have excellent fish restaurants where you can sample some of the local specialities such as "Sama", "Vieja" and "papas Arrugadas" with "Mojo" combined with the local "Malvasia" wines.
The best beaches can be found in the Southern most tip of the island in the coves of Papagayo. These are made up of pure white sand blown over from West Africa’s Sahara desert many years ago. They offer a magnificent view of Fuerteventura, the neighbouring island to the south. Other beaches include Playa Blanca (not to be confused with Playa Blanca, the town) which runs parallel with the promenade in Puerto del Carmen, easily accessible and offers beach activities such as pedalos, jet skis, sunbeds, and parasols. Playas Grande Beach is just 350m awaw with Los Pocillos a bit further down the road and both offer activities such as windsurfing and dinghy sailing. Further North are the quiet beaches of Famara and Orzola.
Puerto del Carmen Area
Puerto del Carmen is a combination of traditional and modern. Originally a quaint fishing harbour and village, the town has developed into a very attractive modern resort along the south facing bays of the Los Fariones, Pocillos and Matagorda beaches. As with the rest of Lanzarote, great care has been taken in planning the architecture and landscape. The result is a beautiful promenade stretching the length of the three bays lined with palm trees and the colourful tropical flowers are a main feature.
The beautiful sandy beaches and clear blue water are ideal for sunbathing and swimming all year round. Puerto del Carmen is highly recommended as safe and suitable for young and old alike. The protected southerly situation shelters it from the prevailing winds on the North and East side of the island. The old fishing village has retained the harbour atmosphere and is an excellent place to sample the local fish restaurants and local shops which are only a short distance from all our properties. When the sun goes down, the beachfront livens up and there is a great selection of good quality restaurants, bars and discos later on. Other Places of Interest -

I’m just back from my holiday and I have to say it was GREAT!! This is the 3rd year at Lanzarote but the 1st one in Cinco Plaza and I loved every minute of it.
Just came back from Lanzarote - what an amazing time we had! The apartments are lovely-such good value for money. The beach is lovely and the apartments are in the perfect location for beach and bars. Lots of nice places to eat - la dolce vita, new world Chinese restaurant. Definitely for all ages but mostly teenagers wanting a good time. Will be returning next year
The resort is lovely! It isn’t a "tacky" resort like Playa las Americas in Tenerife. However, there are lots of nice restaurants and bars to choose from, so you won't get bored. The beach was excellent (and clean!) The apartments were excellent- our room was spacious and clean. There are 3 pools to pick from with lots of sun loungers. There's poolside entertainment if you fancied it- although they didn't hassle you to join in too much! The apartments are also in a good location to the restaurants and beach etc
