๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡จ4 of the BEST Places to Stay in Lanzarote  ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡จ


Hello! I’m Jake, and in this guide we’re
going to show you some of the best places to stay in Lanzarote. So in no particular
order – here we go! The gorgeous Punta Mujeres is a coastal village
on the northern east coast of the island, full of small, traditional white buildings. And when a village is not only by the coast,
but also this pretty, and it has major tourist attractions you think that it would feel more
touristy. But it really doesn’t. like it’s got a really small village local kind of authentic
feel and I really love that. Most buildings have pretty terraces and balconies,
reaching to make the most of the beautiful views out to sea. Historically a fishing village,
the small streets and alleyways all seem to lead you to the sea. Perhaps Punta Mujeres’
biggest draw for tourists though is the natural bathing pools. Filled with seawater and protected by huge
breakwaters of naturally occurring rocks, swim in these pools at the right time of day
and you’ll get to experience the sea’s waves smashing against these rocks to make
huge plumes and sprays. You won’t find white sand here – the beach at Punta Mujeres has
a different beauty. The beach at Punta Mujeres is beautiful in
its own way you know it’s not white sand, it’s sort of like dark black rocks and white
waves smashing up against them. It’s a really great place to see but maybe it’s not a perfect
beach if you’re thinking of having a swim. Mere minutes away from popular attractions
like Jameos Del Agua and Cueva de los Verdes; Punta Mujeres is the perfect place to stay
if you’re looking for a mix of nearby things to do and relaxing isolation. Somewhere definitely not so isolated is Puerto
Del Carmen, maybe the best known resort town on the island. At just 10 minutes from the
airport, it’s a perfect place to explore the island from. Really it’s got all of the comforts you’d
expect from a resort town. It’s got restaurants, bars clubs, nice beaches and what we think
is really the gem a nice little fishing port as well; it’s called El Varadero and you can
see lots of little leisure boats moored up there. It’s a really lovely place to go
for a nice wander. Puerto del Carmen stretches for 6 kilometres
along the coastline, so be sure to check exactly where you’re planning on staying to get
the most out of your location. But make no mistake, wherever you stay, you’re going
to have everything you need just a stone’s throw away. And that’s to say nothing of
the amazing sunsets. So the shape of the island means that from
Puerto del Carmen to the sea you can also see some of the mountains over there and where
the sun sets behind them and get really lovely Orange Glow. Like many resort towns, Puerto Del Carmen
is full of energy – restaurants, bars, nightlife, you name it. But in exchange, you do lose
a little of the authenticity you’ll find in smaller towns. If you’re looking for authenticity, look
no further than Teguise, the oldest Spanish settlement in the whole of the Canaries, dating
back to 1402. It’s located slightly inland, but still very close to lots of attractions
and coastal areas, making it a perfect home base if you’ve hired a car, and want to
see as much of the island as possible. So this main town of Teguise is known as La
Villa, it’s just referred to as La Villa. Teguise is the region, or Costa Teguise is
the tourism place down by the beach but this is a lot more quaint, and local and it’s just
got a lot more relaxed feel to it. There are few hotels, and not many organised
tours stop here. This makes for hushed streets and squares that perfectly preserve the past.
But don’t mistake the quiet for isolation – this town hosts the island’s biggest street
market every Sunday. Also, up on the peak of the extinct volcano overlooking the town,
you’ll find the fortress Castillo Santa Barbara, home to the Pirate Museum! If you’re
interested, you can learn more about the museum in our Lanzarote Travel Guide. Just a 15 minute drive towards the sea away
from the peaks surrounding Teguise is Lanzarote’s third largest resort – Costa Teguise. Teguise and Costa Teguise have nearly only
a name in common. Costa Teguise is a resort town in every sense of the word. you want
for nothing here is hotels bars restaurants beaches the whole lot. It’s so well equipped
that you’re never going to be more than 10 minutes walk away from anything you could
want. Costa Teguise is a purpose-built resort town,
taking shape in the 1970s as an ‘upmarket alternative’ to Puerto Del Carmen, and became
very popular with German and Scandinavian tourists during the 1980s. Many excursions to the island’s most popular
things to do depart from Costa Teguise, and it’s home to the only water park on the
island. The seafront promenade will walk you past all five of the main beaches, and the
sunset views here are just as fantastic as Puerto Del Carmen. And there we have it! If you found this video
