WHICH is THE BEST AREA TO STAY IN LANZAROTE?

Best place to stay in Lanzarote

The best place to stay in Lanzarote for nightlife is Puerto del Carmen (not a nightlife like Ibiza... best to say a lively place in Lanzarote).  

The best area to stay in Lanzarote in december and January is Playa Blanca: the warmest resort in Lanzarote, the drier, hotter and sunniest place, perfect for beach life.

I often visit the Canary islands (especially Gran Canaria where I have my holiday apartment) so I can help to planning a nice holiday in Lanzarote that I visited many times.

Lanzarote is an island to discover and explore by car, bike or trekking. 

It is an ideal destination for those who want to disconnect from the city life, see beautiful landscapes, sunbathing...

Puerto del Carmen 

Stay in Puerto del Carmen if you:

- Looking for cheap Accommodation (Souther part is more expensive)
- Need a starting point to visit the island (the position halfway between the North and South is ideal for getting around without changing accommodation.)
- Looking for nightlife: it is full of restaurants, pubs and shops. "Nightlife" not like Ibiza style but something more soft. 




Costa Teguise


Stay in Costa Teguise for sightseeing in the northern part of Lanzarote.

- It is a tourist village, it has shops and restaurants in winter full of retirees people.  "Pueblo Marinero" is considered the center of social life in Costa Teguise full of Bars and restaurants. It is characteristic.

Playa Blanca


The Southern area of Lanzarote is slightly warmer and less windy than the rest of the island but, in my opinion, for the winter season is better to go in Gran Canaria in the South West countries.


Stay to Playa Blanca if:


- Are you looking for a relaxing holiday.
- Want to visit Fuerteventura.
- Looking for a place with tourist shops and restaurants.
- a good Beach where you can swim (Playa Dorata).
- Traveling with your family and children.

Arrecife


Like any capital, Arrecife town is NOT only for tourists but also to those who live and work there. 
Arrecife is pretty connected to the bus station with a comfortable walk along the ocean and a park. The Reducto beach is wide, perfect for sunbathing



Arrecife is suitable for those on a budget: the prices here are lower than in the South. It is a good starting point to visit the north of the island and visit the museums of the city. The bus station connects all the major cities of Lanzarote.

Latest deals. The price is for 7 nights, per accommodation NOT per person. If you are looking for other dates, click the blue button "See all deals" and enter the desired period.

Caleta De Famara


The best place to sleep in Lanzarote for surfing is Famara. 

Famara beach is worth a visit. I liked it a lot because it is wide surrounded by mountains that make the place suggestive. The town bordering the beach is frequented mostly by surfers, the atmosphere is hippy and relaxing. There are a couple of restaurants, shops that rent and sell equipment to practice this sport and a surf school.


This is also not the classic tourist resort but a place on a human scale surrounded by nature where there are cheap apartments to stay. It is located in the north west of the island and I recommend staying here only if you love to kitesurfing or surfing.


Yaiza pueblo

Where to Stay in Lanzarote to visit Southern attractions 

Yaiza is a small village located in the southern area of ​​Lanzarote, inland, and is the destination chosen by travelers looking for the most famous attractions: the Timanfaya National Park but also los Hervideros, El Golfo...

Yaiza is not a tourist place but a typical local village.


La Graciosa

La Graciosa is an island visible from the Mirador del Rio that can be reached from Lanzarote. I suggest visiting La Graciosa for a night, just to completely immerse yourself in nature: a lunar environment with beaches not yet reached by mass tourism.
