01 Jul Lanzarote Vacation Tips: Outdoor Activities
While we recognize the value of our Rural Villas as beautiful places to “get away from it all,” we also know that, while you are here, you will want to explore this amazing island of Lanzarote that we call home. Today we want to emphasize three ways to have fun in the sun while staying at our holiday villas.
It should be obvious that, as an island, Lanzarote has beaches. We love the great variety of things that you can do on, or near, our beaches. You can, of course, soak up the sun while relaxing on a beach towel after a leisurely swim. You can also place a chair under a tree or beach umbrella and enjoy the tang of the sea breeze, a cool drink, and a good book. If you are ready to be more active, you can enjoy all sorts of water sports, ranging from windsurfing the waters at Costa Teguise, which hosted the 2011 world windsurfing championships, to canoeing, snorkeling and even diving to experience the amazing and varied underwater sea life. If you like unusual experiences, go to El Golfo, where the beach sand is black instead of white, and make sure to take photos of yourselves there, because no one back home will believe it!
You can actually combine hiking and time strolling along the beach by going to Famara, as there is a great hike down to this secluded beach with great views of the neighboring island of La Graciosa. Inland, there are hiking opportunities at many of our over 300 volcanoes to choose from, and spring brings meadows full of grasses and blooms, so you will want to bring your camera along. Other great hiking trails are found in our Famara and Los Ajaches mountain ranges.
For those who enjoy a relaxing game of golf, we have two 18-hole golf courses, in Costa Teguise and Puerto del Carmen. In addition to a lovely walk in the sun and a chance to challenge yourself in sometimes-windy conditions, these courses will provide you with a great variety of views of this spectacular island that we call home. Costa Teguise also has an on-site golf coach if you feel the need to brush up on your skills.
So contact us today and make plans to come join us here on Lanzarote for some fun in the sun!
