Gillian's Trip to Lanzarote

By Gillian Foley

My partner David and I spent a week in Lanzarote to escape the cold weather..


We stayed at the Elena Apartments in Puerto Del Carmen, which are lovely self-catering apartments located in the heart of Puerto del Carmen. Situated next to the avenue of the beaches and Playa Grande, the apartments offer easy access to a wide range of leisure activities, pubs, restaurants, supermarkets, shops, and services such as pharmacies or medical centers.

What I Loved

We loved the weather and the reasonably priced food in Lanzarote. Lanzarote provides a romantic escape with its picturesque beaches, breathtaking volcanic landscapes, and vibrant sunsets, creating an ideal backdrop for couples to enjoy quality time together. The island's diverse attractions, from scenic national parks to charming villages, offer a perfect blend of adventure and tranquility for a memorable getaway with your partner.

Activities & Places to See

  • ​In addition to the beaches, Lanzarote offers diverse attractions, and I would highly recommend exploring Timanfaya National Park. The park features permanent exhibition rooms, and the breathtaking views make it a must-visit destination.


Lanzarote boasts a variety of stunning beaches, each with its own unique charm. Some notable ones include Playa Grande, Playa de los Pocillos, and Playa Blanca. These beaches offer golden sands, crystal-clear waters, and a perfect setting for relaxation and water activities.

Bars & Restaurants

Puerto del Carmen is abundant with restaurants and bars, providing a myriad of options to choose from. We particularly enjoyed the Mexican restaurant located on the main strip.
