Playa Las Cucharas Costa Teguise

My Perfect Lanzarote Day

We decided to crowd source this one, by asking the question on our Facebook page. But first, we’ll share our perfect Lanzarote day:

It would have to be a Sunday, and it would start with a breakfast on the patio – freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee and croissants. Next we’d head out to do a walk or cycle ride before the sun gets too high. Returning home, we’d shower and change for Sunday lunch with friends – it could be anywhere, but will always feature fresh fish and lots of conversation. The afternoon is all about the beach – intermittently snorkelling, reading and pretending not to be snoozing on the sand. In the evening, our perfect Sunday will end with some more book reading while the barbecue gets up to temperature, and dinner will be barbecued meat, corn on the cob and a salad, served with a crisp local Malvasía white.

Here’s a selection of posts from your answers to the question about your perfect Lanzarote day:

“Sitting by the pool and jumping in when it gets too hot. Stroll down to Keane’s Bar near the old town for a couple of beers. Can’t wait 😊”

“Waking up that 1st morning, shower, coffee, a walk, more coffee, tapas, read a book in the sun, get dressed for dinner, go to La Chalana for superb food, Lanzarote wine, a coupla of beers at La Ruta, sleep, repeat”

“A bit of César Manrique, a bit of nice fresh fish at the seaside in a small village (El Golfo, Arrieta e.g.), chilled white wine on my seaview balcony …”

“A dip in the cove near the dive school then a boat trip to Puerto Calero followed by the cliff top walk back to PDC..a Bucket of Sols in San Miguel bar then back to the apartment to get ready for the night.A meal in Wok followed by quiz night in The Tavern on the seafront. ,A brilliant drag show in Basseys Showbar and finally cocktails whilst listening to live music in Tequilla Lounge or O’reillys.”

“Wake up in a nice bungalow in Los Pocillos PDC. Breakfast on the patio staring at tall palm trees. Mountain bike ride to Arrecife and back. Afternoon swim, nice meal and a beer outside Diamond bar PDC.”

“Quiet cuppa on the terrace as the day starts, leisurely brekki, a good book while soaking up the rays by the pool, dipping in when it’s too hot. G&T’s in afternoon with tapas. Shower and out for a lovely meal in a favourite restaurant overlooking the sea-finish off night at the American Indian for some live music and cocktails…..ahhh perfect.”

“Watching the sun rise over Montanna Rosa from the roof terrace, then cycle in the morning from Lighthouse to Port of Playa Blanca, sit and watch the world go by, then a drive to Haria, we love it there  eat in the square
