Located in central Puerto del Carmen, although in a residential only area - part of a collection of villas in 2 - 3 streets, Villa Plata is close to all amenities:
Local restaurants/ bars: 5 minute walk (450m) south-east to Pizzeria Mozzarella, a family-friendly restaurant. Or a 5 minute walk (450m) south to Spinnakers, a family-friendly Irish restaurant and bar on Calle Anzuelo with outdoor seating and a stunning sea view.
Supermarket: 5 minute walk (450m) south to HiperDino Express supermarket on Calle Anzuelo or 18 minute walk (1.5km) east to Lidl at No. 1, Calle Juan Carlos I, which is a large well-stocked supermarket with a great meat counter for your BBQ. When paying just ask a staff member to call a taxi for you and they will happily do so. Driving there 3 mins (1.8km) but the return journey will be 5 mins (2.8km) because of the central reservation.
Main Beach Road: 9 minute walk (650m) south to the Avenida de las Playas, the long 'strip' of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops of the greatest variety that runs parallel to Playa Grande. Beach-side, the palm-tree lined promenade is perfect for strolling, jogging, cycling on the red brick cycling lane (many bicycle renting places available), or just people watching.
Beaches: Playa Grande is an 10 minute walk (700m) south. A long stretch of fine-grain sand with calm waters, a very gentle shelf and little current so paddling and swimming are very safe. Playa Chica, a 26 minute walk (2.2km) south-west is a pretty little cove surrounding by volcanic rocks, which is perfect for snorkelling and diving (a dive school is located here). Other sports enjoyed at Playa Chica are parascending, banana boat rides, single and double jet-skiing, Crazy UFO and Fly-boarding.
Tourist Information Centre: 10 minute walk (750m) south down Calle Anzuelo - located beach side.
Biosfera Shopping Plaza: 23 minute walk (1.9km) west to No. 15, Calle Juan Carlos I. Four floors of shops, restaurants and amusements including Starlight Open Air cinema playing 2 English movies each evening, a billiard and pool hall, crazy golf, and Cine6D virtual reality motion rides.
Old Town Harbour: 28 minute walk (2.4km) west - there are a wide choice of restaurants and bars in the harbour area. Great for lunch, dinner or a drink while an adventure playground keeps the children amused. Lots of choice of boat trips from the harbour including trips on a submarine diving down 50m, scuba diving and the water taxi to the marina at Puerto Calero.
Don't forget taxi fares are inexpensive in Lanzarote if you don't want to walk home.
Golf: Lanzarote Golf is a public course 5 minutes drive or a 34 minute walk (2.6km).
Puerto Calero: 70-90 minute walk (7km) south west along the coastal walkway and you will reach the marina at Puerto Calero, where there are lovely restaurants and gorgeous shopping. This walk is very popular with our clients. The restaurants in Puerto Calero are perfect for a long lazy lunch. The Water Taxi back costs 6 Euros and the last one leaves about 5pm.
Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park, a 3 minute drive (2km). Displays of birds of prey, sea lions, and parrots and cockatoos and you can also see other exotic birds and reptiles, including the Komodo dragon. Also a cowboy lasso and whip show, and the children can enjoy canoeing and gold-panning, pony riding, and then cool off in the pool.
Timanfaya National Park:
The natural wonder of Lanzarote has a unique 'Martian' landscape and rare plant species. To the El Diablo restaurant, a 30 minute drive (25km). A unique experience is it to take a camel ride across the volcanic landscape (21 minute drive, 20km).
Aqualava Water Park:
A geothermally-heated water park 29 minutes drive south-west (27.6km).
A go-karting track 11 minutes drive north-east (9km).
Every Friday 10am - 4pm 100 stalls set up at the Plaza Varadero near the Old Town harbour for locally sourced fruit, vegetables and flowers, as well as handmade craft items, jewellery and clothes (600m).
At nearby Tias, the Saturday morning 9am - 2pm Farmers market is an ideal place to purchase fresh locally produced vegetables much cheaper than the supermarkets (10 minute drive 6km north-east). Also, the biggest open-air street market in Lanzarote is on Sunday mornings 9am - 2pm in Teguise (28 minute drive 21km north-east).
Late February, revel at the Carnival or if you're visiting in July, don't miss the folklore performances, folk singing, dancing and vibrant processions at the Feast of St Carmen, patron saint of the city and fishermen.
