Playa de Los Pocillos Holidays

GENERAL

Introduction

From the peaceful beachfront days lazing on a sun lounger soaking up the sun, to the watersports just begging to be sampled on the crystal clear waters, Playa de los Pocillos is all about fun in the sun. As a relatively new resort on the island of Lanzarote , most of it being developed in the 1990s, Playa de los Pocillos isn't an old resort, but it makes up for its youth with the promise of complete relaxation. As a small, low-key resort, Playa de los Pocillos holidays provide you with a snippet of calm in the Canary Islands , giving you the chance to sit back and enjoy a summer holiday at your own pace. If you do want to liven things up a bit, Puerto del Carmen is only down the road and home to plenty of night-time revelries for the party animals to get their fill of a good night out.
Popular with families and couples, Playa de los Pocillos can be found on the south of Lanzarote and boasts an incredible climate throughout the year, including the winter months where its temperatures are considerably warmer than the ones we have to put up with in the UK!
From the moment you step on the Avenida de las Playas and stroll through the resort, you will know that you're in the right place for your Lanzarote holiday - all that's left to do is enjoy!
