Lanzarote: The most easterly of the Canary islands, formerly named the 'Fortune Islands', Lanzarote basks in almost constant sunshine all year round, and is very distinct from its sister islands, both in landscape and climate. Lanzarote was recently named by the World Health Organisation as being the 2nd healthiest place to live in the world. Due to the tireless work of the local artist Cesar Manrique, the island maintains a unique blend of architecture and ecology, resulting in a totally unspoilt,traditional feel. Famous for it's amazing volcanic landscape and superb beaches, the island has a unique character all of it's own. There are many places of interest and sites to see - 'Jameos Del Agua'one of the islands many natural phenomena's, a volcanic tube caused by an ancient volcanic eruption creating an under ground lake. 'Timanfaya National Park '( The Fire Mountains ), words are inadequate and would spoil this experience.This visit is simply a must.
Car Hire: Cars can be pre-booked and collected from the Airport on your arrival or can be arranged for local collection within Playa Blanca.( Example - 5 seater Opel Corsa approx 135 euros all in per week ) . Like any where in the world, there are good & bad car hire companies. We recommend Cicar or Cabrera Medina, both companies are based at Arrecife Airport and have offices throughout Lanzarote, including several within Playa Blanca.
Playa Blanca ~ Eating & Entertainmnet: Playa Blanca mainly caters for families, couples and the more mature visitor.The village is host to a wealth of cosmopolitan restaurants, most of which serve fresh local fish / seafood and a wide selection of 'Canarian' specialties. The main wine making/ growing area of 'La Geria', is nearby, hence most restaurants offer a wide selection of local, quality, reasonably priced wines to suit all palates as well as many international wines. The Village Nightlife is generally low key and is mainly focused on those wishing to eat, drink and relax. However there is a handful of music bars that open late, the nearest from Villa Ocaso being 1 kilometre away( The Irish Anvil ~ Recommended ). These bars are safe and are well managed, and are ideal for the older teenagers in your party ( or yourselves ) to escape to for an hour or so. For those of you that want a more hectic night, Puerto del Carmen is only a Car/Taxi ride away ( 28 kilometres ).
