    This is a lovely part of Playa Blanca, lots of restaurants and shops, local market twice a week (Wednesday and Saturday. You can do a lovely coastal walk from here also.
    Recommend the Flagship pub, live music, great staff. Mumbai restaurant is also recommended, but you need to make a booking.

    Loved this adventure with my family and would do it again. However. Take your baby in a carrier because the people who have previously said you can get a buggy up then just carry the baby the rest of the way.... well they must be crossfitters with extra arms because we struggled to get our terrain buggy up very far.

    To be fair apparently the ground was more uneven because of a recent storm. But I slipped at the top and fell whilst holding my 10month old. I really could of done with both hands to catch myself but hey ho, my 4 yr old found it funny. He managed to walk up and down the whole thing no problems. Defo go early or overcast. Defo wear grippy trainers. Defo wear a decent bra!

    it's a town beach, but thanks to the low-rise policy in Lanzarote, the setting is not bad. The sand is pale golden, the water is wonderfully crystal clear, with an incredible variety of splendidly coloured fish. Great swims.
    BUT, the difference between morning before 10.30-11.00 and after is like night and day. In the earlier part of the morning, the beahc is uncrowded, quiet, and ideal for a great swim. Then it becomes progressively extremely crowded. And noisy: on the beach itself, many screaming kids, and in the water the unbearable loud and constant noise of jet skis and other engines. These also make swimming much less enjoyable, with an area you cannot cross.

    We came over from Fuerteventura to visit for the day.
    Pleasantly surprised, nice resort with lots of restaurants and shops (some seem to sell the same tat)
    The beaches are nice and in walking distance from the port.
    The sea is crystal clear, sheltered and calm lovely for the little ones.
    Weather was fabulous but very hot as no wind compared to fuert.
    Definitely recommend at visit.

    Small man made beach which is very sheltered.
    Great for little ones.
    No sun loungers so take your own blanket and sun shade.
    Sea is crystal clear.
    Supermarket and bars/restaurants near by.
    We visited on a day trip from Fuerteventura and loved it, totally recommend a visit.

    Great place and very fun slides suitable for people at least up to 100kg, possibly up to 200kg (as you can go in pairs for the bigger slides). My only issue worthy o complaint was the lack of changing rooms. Great place overall.

    You're not a scuba diver? Then, get started, or you'll miss this unique wonderful underwater museum. It's one of a kind and truly magical. This one was on my bucket list and I am so glad we visited this very special place.

    First of all, do not follow Google maps Los Charcones if your by car. Just drive from the south to "Charcones (Piscinas Naturales)". Maps will show you the abandonded hotel (which in fact never acted as a hotel). You can leave the car on the tarmac road or drive carefully to the hotel building.
    Very difficult to find the right pools however just keep on looking - apr.150-200m from the hotel south. Better to decend so that you see the pools right below you, easier for the dip. Clear calm water (noon) with some tropical fish, black & red crabs and sea urchins. Really beautiful & peaceful.

    Due to the incorrect directions we had to walk apr. 5 km on a dirt road/1h (fast pace) there and back, but still worth it!

    The sea walk seems to run right along the south coast (except for going round the port where development work in underway. Not too crowded and lots of nice landscaping round the hotels. The only drawback are the people trying to tempt you into their bars and restaurants every 5 metres.

    Very quick and pleasant crossing.
    A little more expensive, but if you're in a hurry....
    Coffee was horrible.

    Monday 10th January and we walked along Avenida (Paseo) Maritima from our hotel, H10 Timanfaya Palace Hotel to Playa Blanca Port, roughly a twenty minute walk.

    We continued on past the Marina, we climbed up the steps to the top of the hill where this old castle is located.

    It is known by a number of names including El Castillo o Torre del Aguila, according to the information board. Another name is Castillo de las Coloradas. Aguila is the Spanish word for eagle.

    This circular stone structure was built in 1741 to protect the island from pirate attack and raids. It was rebuilt in 1769 having been destroyed by fire. It is the only defensive building on the south of the Island.

    Although it us not possible to enter the castle, visitors can climb up the steps then cross the small drawbridge to the entrance door. There is a small hole in the door which visitors can peer though, not a lot to see.

    On the top of the castle, not directly over the entrance, there is a small belfry which is topped by a cross. There is no bell there nowadays.

    It is worth the climb up here firstly to see the castle and secondly to enjoy the views along the rugged coastline.

    Absolutely fantastic kids' club, the staff here are so caring and looked after my son brilliantly. A whole rota of different activities and the ability to 'drop in, drop out' as you wish. Thanks to the amazing men and ladies that work here and for keeping kids entertained and giving mum and dad a break. My son is still talking about it now and chanting the Kikohouse song! We will be back :-)

    We stayed in a villa near this area so were able to take a stroll round which was enjoyable. However it is a windy part of the island!

    We spent 2 weeks at THB and my 4 year old son attended the academy. Registration process is simple with the office on site. Although my son was slightly younger than most of the others they challenged him sensibly and made it really fun for him. You could see that the business model and the coaching is Elite and they cater for all abilities. Big thanks to Ben snd Becks from wee Rossá
