San Bartholme is the most central of the seven municipalities that divide the two distinct landscapes of the south and north part of the island. There are a few beaches in the area however we have visited three during our numerous excursions to the region.
This is the first of two beaches referred to as Guacimeta. The 1,050m stretch of toasted sand with calm waters is quite unique in terms of beaches, with the exception that it’s far from the airfield for me. Parking was easy and is accessible via the guaguas (autobus). There are bars, shops as well as public telephones, and an attractive promenade, so it’s an excellent beach to visit.
This second one is situated in an area of semi-developed near the airport as well as the Guacimeta beach, and is referred to by the name of Playa Honda. It measures 1,900m.long with a width of 85m,, it is the largest in this region and is made up of a medium-grained golden sand and tranquil waters that are perfect for families as well as providing good opportunities for windsurfing. It’s a mere 5 minutes away from the airport, therefore the sound of aircrafts won’t ruin your enjoyment and it’s simple to park.
We call it our “Last Day’ beach!
Do you need to get out of your hotel earlier ?
Are you currently on an evening or late afternoon flight?
Are you planning to do something with your children, without being too stressed out in the end ?
Are you worried about thinking of spending all day in the airport prior to your take off for to home ?
And, believe me in my claim this beach as well as Playa Honda generally is a excellent place to stop by on the way to home.
Here are my opinions on it:
*The Beach is amazing ;
* The entire area in Playa Honda is not directly directed at tourists, therefore you can leave Lanzarote with a taste of the Canarian aspect of it ;
There is a wide choice of eateries on the beachfront serving the traditional Spanish Tapas and the Spanish Omelette “to the max”. There are other high-quality Canarian food to be found along with things for the kids (if they’re the fussy kind) and
* It also has a selection of shops to keep you busy (duty gift items, free products, etc.).
We finally have La Concha, 250m Long and 10m wide, with fine golden sand and tranquil waters.
La Concha beach is next to the development with the same name at the edge of the capital city, Arrecife. It is a good parking spot and can be reached through Guaguas (autobus) and a short promenade that is lined with bars and restaurants.
