“Peaceful Playa de los Pocillos is a world away from the lively side of Lanzarote.”
If a stretch of sand, the odd bar and a couple of restaurants are all it takes to create your perfect beach break, Playa de los Pocillos is just the ticket. It’s neither a traditional fishing village or an action-packed mega-resort. What it’s about is rest and relaxation. Beach-wise you’ve got a broad expanse of fine sand, gently shelving into clear waters. And there’s often a balmy breeze off the sea that tempers the summer heat - not to mention making the resort a favourite with windsurfers. As for other daytime activities, it’s mainly down to more watersports. If you fancy a day out, there are regular buses to the island’s capital, Arrecife, where you’ll find a good range of shops, as well as some interesting sights, including El Charco de San Gines, a saltwater lagoon in the city centre surrounded by fisherman’s houses, and two museums housed in castles. In the evening, Playa de los Pocillos is not the place for nightlife lovers, who should instead head down to Puerto Del Carmen for some action. However, if you’re not worried about dancing the night away and a good meal is the order of the day, there are a couple of good restaurants on the seafront. This place is all about the laid-back holiday life-style – so sit back, relax and go with the flow.
