Things to do in Playa de Los Pocillos
Lanzarote has so much more to offer than your average beach holiday activities, and there is a wealth of exciting things to do in Playa de Los Pocillos.

If you prefer to explore the underwater world by boat however, you can take a tourist submarine to see what lies at the depths of the Atlantic.
Bask on the Beach
You'll find the newest accommodation on the outskirts of town – not that the outskirts are very far away from anywhere else. The water's edge is lined with not only powdery golden sand but an impressive choice of bars and restaurants to hop between after dark. In between the two is the commercial centre which has a variety of shops and supermarkets for anyone looking to self-cater. The resort is a slightly more relaxed suburb of the buzzing Puerto Del Carmen, which lies just a five minute walk to the west.
Holidays to Playa De Los Pocillos are an easy-breezy affair, ideal for young families or couples who want equal amounts of fun and relaxation. Its proximity to busy Puerto Del Carmen means that staying out all night has never been easier, and although Los Pocillos has its fair share of thumping clubs too, the atmosphere over on this side of the town is a much more chilled out one.
It's the kind of place where you can spend your days snoozing on the sand or cooling off in the gentle waves of the Atlantic, while your evenings can be spent enjoying a casual drink or two over dinner or at one of the beachside bars. You'll be spoiled for choice with the range of cuisines on offer, but for some local fare try tapas, paella or a jug of freshly made sangria.
Livelier nightlife is only a short stroll away thanks to the promenade that runs all the way from Los Pocillos through to Puerto Del Carmen and out the other side. Playa De Los Pocillos holidays allows you to delight in having everything at your doorstep, with none of the crowds.
