Unlocking the untapped potential of Lanzarote

Holidays in Lanzarote are no stranger to being one of the mainstays of British tourism in the Canary Islands. However, with areas like Playa del Carmen becoming more and more popular with tourists, those in the know are seeking out lesser-known sun spots for their holiday this year.

Currently, one of the most talked about resorts is Playa de los Pocillos in Lanzarote. While this resort remains under most people’s radar, Playa de Pocillos is still a bustling town with lots to offer in the way of amenities and is becoming a firm favourite with families who are looking for sun and relaxation. 

What to do:
The stretches of beach in and around Playa de los Pocillos are made of a mixture of rocks and volcanic sand, which gives it an unusual greyish colour. However, no one lets this put them off and the beach is the centre of the action in the town, with sunbathing and watersports high on the agenda. 

Where to stay
One of the most talked about hotels in Playa de los Pocillos is the Seaside los Jameos Playa, thanks to its impressive facade and extensive facilities, including a spa, several pool areas, and tennis courts. There are a number of hotels springing up in the area and, because this is a relatively new resort, most of them are newly built and in mint condition. 

Insider tips:

Playa de los Pocillos is just down the road from popular tourist resort Playa del Carmen for those craving a bit more nightlife. A short stroll will take party-hunters to the bright lights and bustling bars of the town where they can dance the night away into the small hours. For those who prefer their nightlife a bit more sedate, Playa de los Pocillos offers a relaxed, laid back feel with several restaurants and small, family-run bars in which to while away the evening. These are also great places to try out some of the local cuisine.
How to get there:
The rise of the package holiday operators, such as Jet2holidays, has meant that it is easy for UK sun-seekers to find cheap holidays to Playa de los Pocillos. The most clued-up travellers tend not to hang about and flights during the summertime often get snapped up early. All in all, for those thinking of a trip to Playa de los Pocillos, it's better to book sooner rather than later.
