Playa de los Pocillos
This laid-back Lanzarote town sits on the island’s east coast, just a 15-minute stroll away from the much livelier, Puerto del Carmen.
Unlike many other parts of the island, Playa de los Pocillos doesn’t have a long history of tourism, with most of the town’s development taking place in the early nineties. As a result, despite being relatively busy, it remains one of Lanzarote’s lesser-trodden resorts.
As for the beach, it’s a big hit with families in particular. The 1-kilometre stretch of golden sand slopes gently into the calm, shallow waters, which makes it a top spot for families with young children taking their first paddle into the sea.
There’s plenty going for it on the facilities front too, with deckchairs and sunbeds available to hire, plus plenty of parking close by, and lots of shops and restaurants sprinkled along the promenade, which stretches all the way along the coast to Puerto del Carmen.
