Playa de los Pocillos
As mentioned, the beach is the main draw of a cheap holiday to Playa de los Pocillos and as well as providing a haven for relaxing, it also plays host to an abundance of water sports. For those who don’t fancy strolling along the promenade to Puerto del Carmen’s numerous shops, bars, restaurants and busy seafront, there is also a regular bus service that connects the two resorts. Far quieter and more relaxed than its Puerto del Carmen neighbour, a cheap holiday to Playa de los Pocillos is a popular choice for families with children. It is the ideal place to splash around in the sea and enjoy beach-based activities, whilst still being within easy reach of its more action-packed neighbour. For a fun family day out, the Rancho Texas theme park in Puerto del Carmen has Wild West-themed activities and is also home to the biggest zoo on Lanzarote, giving kids the opportunity to see a wide range of animals, from miniature ponies to pumas and even some white tigers.
Playa de los Pocillos’ summer season lasts from May until October, and the high season months will see temperatures hovering around 29C. As is typical with a Canary Islands holiday, even the winter months will provide more than enough sunshine to ensure that you return home with a golden tan. See all Lanzarote holidays.
