Playa de los Pocillos Holidays
Travel Agent's View...popular with families and couples and has a good range of amenities but it is considerably quieter than the neighbouring Puerto Del Carmen
Playa de los Pocillos is located between the main resort of Puerto del Carmen and the quieter resort of Matagorda, on the south east coast of Lanzarote.
Los Pocillos has a wide sandy beach which stretches for over half a mile and is well serviced with water activities and children's entertainment.
Bars and restaurants are plentiful along the attractive promenade which runs beside the beach. A 15 minute stroll east along the beach will take you into the neighbouring resort of Matagorda, or 15 minutes in the other direction will take you into Puerto del Carmen.
Playa de los Pocillos is popular with families and couples and has a good range of amenities but it is considerably quieter than the neighbouring Puerto Del Carmen.
The resort is in a good location to visit other nearby areas, with Matagorda, Arrecife, Puerto del Carmen, Puerto Calero and Lanzarote Golf Resort all being within 15 minutes drive.
Playa de los Pocillos is approx. 5 miles/8km to Lanzarote Airport

...one of my favourite excursions is the Megafun daily quad bike tour that goes exploring from Costa Mar along dirt tracks to Famara...
Playa de Los Pocillos is situated between Matagorda and Puerto del Carmen. This is a quieter resort with larger style villas yet only a short distance from all the bustle of Lanzarote's premier resort.
The biggest attraction here is the beach of Playa de Los Pocillos, the promenade stretches along this huge expanse of golden sand. The beach is over 1km long, there are a couple of sections with rows of sunbed and umbrellas leaving plenty of space for beach games, the conditions are great for wind surfing too.
There is plenty to do from this location, one of my favourite excursions is the Megafun daily quad bike tour that goes exploring from Costa Mar along dirt tracks to Famara on the opposite side of the island. This tour takes you through some wonderful landscapes up to Teguise, back through the wine region of La Geria. Adults need to have a driving license and children can go on the back or in a buggy if preferred.
Kids love a day out at Rancho Texas theme park, this animal park is situated within walking distance from Playa de Los Pocillos. The Country & Western themed nights at Rancho Texas are also a very popular family night out, food and drink included in the price as well as fun, games and line dancing.
The Plaza de Las Naciones is set on the beach and the location for local events, there are quite often live music concerts and traditional markets throughout the year.
There's plenty of choice for shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants with three commercial centres - Costa Mar, Los Pocillos and Jameos Playa in short proximity of each other. If you're missing McDonalds the only drive in on the island is here together with a play centre. You will find traditional Spanish tapas bars along with European and Chinese restaurants, most of them have terraces with lovely sea views.
Playa de Los Pocillos has the attraction of Puerto del Carmen within easy reach but at a slower, quieter and generally more chilled out pace of life.
