When planning a sunny, sandy summer holiday that the whole family will enjoy, it can be difficult to find locations that steer clear of partying, nightclubs and rowdy university students. Parents looking for low key holidays to Lanzarote which are appropriate for all ages need look no further. Whether you and your family are looking to relax or go wild, we’ve got three great resorts that offer safe beaches, child-friendly facilities and nearby activities fit for all ages.
Catch Your Breath in Playa Blanca
Many parents looking for tranquil holidays to Lanzarote tend to choose the little fishing town of Playa Blanca. Part of what makes Playa Blanca so incredibly safe is its lack of booming nightlife and clubs – the most you’ll find here is a laidback bar or two. With its simple shops and relaxing restaurants, it has everything a family abroad on holiday could ask for. On one of your many beach days, take the children down to the gorgeous Papagayo Beach. Argued to be the most beautiful beach around, it’s the perfect place to swim in the ocean, play in the sand or just catch a bit of a tan. If you’re looking for something more athletic, there are countless coastal walks with gorgeous views that can be modified for all ages and athletic abilities.
Play in Puerto del Carmen
Active families booking their summer holidays to Lanzarote will fall in love with Puerto del Carmen. With sports and activities galore, this resort offers boat trips, diving and water sports – there’s even the Rancho Texas Theme Park. For a huge selection of shops and restaurants, take a stroll down the lively beach avenue known as Avenida de las Playas. If you and your family want a whirlwind adventure and constant entertainment, this is the resort for you – there’s never a dull moment in Puerto del Carmen.
Spread Out in Costa Teguise
If Playa Blanca is too relaxed and Puerto del Carmen is too hectic, Costa Teguise is, like Goldilocks said, juuuuuust right. Families, who want their holidays to Lanzarote to be near the action but not smack dab in the middle of it, may want to choose this resort. A place with many aquatic activities, the children will love going on shipwreck viewing tours and catamaran boat trips, or simply watching the yachts float out to sea. There are lovely beaches for days when you want to laze around in the sun and, when you’re feeling more adventurous, Costa Teguise is known for its windsurfing.
Your summer holidays to Lanzarote should be tailored to your family’s interests. Whether you want calm beaches, exhilarating activities or something in between, these resorts have something for everyone.
