Holiday in Costa de Papagayo for the perfect beach break in Lanzarote's south
Situated in Lanzarote's south, Yaiza's coastal region Costa de Papagayo and Los Ajaches Natural Park is home to some of the most popular beaches on the island. The surrounding district of Yaiza boasts some of the most striking landscapes in Spain, with a backdrop of volcanic mountains that make up Timanfaya National Park. Perfect for families and outdoor lovers, enjoy a Canarian coastal break brimming with water sports, adventure, excellent food and natural wonders. Papagayo beach is a firm favourite, with its horseshoe-shaped cove of fine golden sand and crystal-clear, calm waters, but you might also want to try Playa Blanca and Puerto Calero for a livelier atmosphere and a wide choice of restaurants and seafront cafes. This region is also ideal for coastal walks, with a scenic route connecting Playa del Afre with the beaches of Costa de Papagayo from Mujeres beach. Sit and watch the world go by at Marina Rubicon between ilos Ajaches and Playa Blancas, with plenty of upscale shops and bars, or enjoy a local cocktail at neighbouring Puerto del Carmen. For wine lovers, a tour around Bodegas Rubicon in Yaiza is a must.
