Playa de los Charcos
A short drive north of Arrecife, Playa de los Charcos is jujst one of a string of semi-circular bays on this part of the Lanzarote coastline together known as the Costa Teguise. Protected in part by artificial sea walls, it is close to several accommodation options and a good choice of bars and restaurants.
At low tide swapping the sand for the water requires crossing some rocks, but that shouldn’t stop you from contemplating a swim. A broad sweep of sand, there’s some shade from umbrellas alongside the chance to hire out water sports equipment such as pedal boats, canoes and kayaks, making Playa de los Charcos a good choice with people of all ages.
Relatively quiet and uncrowded by comparison with other beaches of the south coast, Playa de los Charcos has a total length of around 450 metres.
