    Lovey harbour with a few designer shops, along with a small supermarket, pharmacy, souvenir shops etc. the harbour club Is definitely worth a trip for lunch/dinner!

    check your change when paying in the shops/smaller cafes, or use small bills - twice we paid with a €20 but when receiving our change the €10 note was ‘forgotten’. Could be coincidence, but these were two separate shops and neither argued, just instantly gave the €10.

    We took a walk here whilst staying in Lanzarote.It seemed like ages, but we eventually arrived to find this idyllic beach.Very small and clean, but so so peaceful.
    After spending a couple of hours here, we ambled across to the nearby bar for a snack.p,which was also good.
    All in all a morning well spent.

    If you're going from north to south (or south to north) in Lanzarote, the best route is through the mind-boggling winelands, where each vine often has its painstakingly constructed dry stone wall to gather the moisture in the night air (because it doesn't rain here much). We stopped a couple of times, for wines and plates of cheese. It's like no other place on earth, and the wines aren't half bad. Tip- the sweet ones are the best with cheese. You're welcome.

    A nice place to visit with reasonably priced wines. Transport required to get there as it is in the middle of nowhere. There is ample information on the wines sold and shop was worth visiting.

    This has become more popular in the last 15 years, but note, you will find folks here who prefer to sunbathe in the nude :) The waves here can be very very powerful, and the undertow very dangerous, so most people either just sunbathe, or wander along the beach looking for fragments of peridot, or play in the very edges of the surf as it runs up the beach (it can still knock you off your feet). It is possible to go swimming here when it's utterly calm, but you do have to be aware of the sea conditions.
    There are no amenities whatsoever.
    One of my favourite beaches on Lanzarote.

    Thursday 13th January and we were travelling from Salinas de Jaubio to El Golfo on LZ - 703. Along the way we visited this rather remote beach on southwest coast of the island.

    We parked up at the parking area at the side of the road.

    It is a picturesque area with the most striking feature being Montaña Bermeja. The red coloured mountain stands at 160 metres and dominates the skyline. The beach sits at the foot of the mountain.

    The beach with it's black volcanic sand and gravel stretches for 455 metres along the coast and is 70 metres at it's widest point. It is surrounded by rocks and a rugged coastline

    Towards the back of the beach was a lagoon, fed by the sea at high tide.

    There are signs on the beach advising visitors no to swim in the sea as it is dangerous due to strong waves. Despite the warnings, when we visited, people were in the sea.

    Definitely worth a quick visit for the scenery, not a beach to spend a day at.

    We were given a talk in the church which has a fascinating history - the lava stopped just outside during the mass eruption and the church was saved. Well worth a visit as you wander round this beautiful town. It is very peaceful.

    Thursday 13th January and we visited the Salt Beds, Las Salinas de Jaubio, which are situated between Las Breñas and El Golfo.

    Due to the size of the vast Salt Beds, they can be seen from some distance. It was very interesting to see how the Salt Beds were fed with the constant flowing water and the process of making salt. We could see salt beds filled with salt crystals.

    There were another couple of features which added to the level of interest here.

    It is home to the statue of Los Salineros and Salineras de Janubio and the Crab Sculpture.

    There is a small shop here, Bodega Jaubio, where it is possible to purchase products produce at the Salt Beds.

    Yaiza is one of the prettier villages of Lanzarote, although quite spread out and with not much of a center, unlike Teguise or Haria. A place to have a break here, after walking around, is the old school building 'Antigua Escuela', now a place with some boutiques and a snack-café.

    We sat down in the open courtyard and from the confectionery we ordered a café cortado and a café solo together with a cheese cake for my wife and an apple crumble for me. It was all very good, also the coffee from the Italian roastery Borbone in Napoli.

    My wife took time as well to visit the boutiques, most of them run by foreign ladies, living since many years on Lanzarote, which was a chance to have some interesting talks. Most products displayed were personally or locally designed and produced and were of good quality, according to my knowledgeable wife.

    Found this cheeky little place in playa Blanca! Great tunes, lots of fun to be had for the budding singers and those out looking for a good laugh.

    Reasonably priced, friendly staff, people inside and outside getting involved in a great time.

    Over all!!! 🤔?? A great laugh! 🤪🤩🥳

    You should go here for a long time and a good time!!
