Riu Paraiso Lanzarote Resort

With a sandy beach just across the road and a brilliant pool scene, Riu Paraiso Lanzarote Resort is two kilometres away from Puerto del Carmen’s centre and 400m to the shops. The talking point of this hotel are its four pools surrounded by swaying palms. There’s a white-sand beach a stone’s throw away, too. This vast, whitewashed hotel is located incredibly close to the famous Avenida de las Playas with the nearby Lanzarote Airport in Arrecife just a 10-minute drive away. It’s a wonderful resort for families with little ones of all ages but is also superb for couples seeking a romantic getaway in Lanzarote.

Overview of Playa de los Pocillos

Holidays to Lanzarote guarantee a calm, quiet escape. The main highlight of Playa de los Pocillos is arguably its beach. Lapped by azure waters and chilled by invigorating breezes, it’s just as good for windsurfing as it is for merely unwinding and basking in the sunshine. Children will love its shallow waters while thrill-seekers will enjoy jet-skiing and bike riding back inland. Granted, it’s undeniably one of Lanzarote’s quieter resorts, but party-goers can venture to the buzzing towns of Arrecife and Puerto del Carmen where there’s all manner of clubs and bars to check out. Its low-key environment and three beautiful Blue Flag beaches make it a wonderful option for families who want to relax in the year-round sunshine.

Bursting with beaches, whitewashed villages and eateries, Playa de los Pocillos sits on a pleasant South Coast spot and is as relaxed as you could want it.
