The most southern municipality of Lanzarote is not only the home of the most beautiful and impressive beaches of the island, it also has some very distinctive villages, which all are worth to visit. You can learn a lot about the history and the traditional life of the "lanzaroteños", which is as strong today as in former times. Join us on our virtual tour, get some new tips and feel inspired.
We start our tour in the village that gave its name to the whole municipality: Yaiza. Although Yaiza is the administrative centre, it still has a quiet and relaxing atmosphere which nowadays is hard to find. You will see the old men sitting in the shade, opposite the church, talking about current events and old times, and instantly you feel how far away you are from the stressful life of European cities. Go into one of the simple, traditional bars with wooden tables and paper tablecloths, where the food is tasty and good, and you normally find an indigenous willing to tell you how things were before tourists came to Lanzarote.
Only a short distance by car, you find one of the most attractive and popular places, El Golfo, with its volcanic crater and green lagoon, Los Clicos. While you are there, take the opportunity of having lunch or dinner at one of the excellent fish restaurants , where you have the choice of the day´s catch. The sunsets on this part of the coast are always an unforgettable experience. From the village you can make an excursion through the unique volcanic landscape, the coastline of Los Hervideros, where the waves are breaking on the rocks, and the salt pans of Janubio, will give you a sense of the energy and diversity of the region.
During our trip we see beautiful old fincas and new and modern houses that are spread out in the magnificent landscape. Some of the traditional fincas are totally restored, retaining their original charm. People have also decided that this is the area in which to build their dream house, this beautiful place is their "utopia".
However - most of the residents live in Playa Blanca, the touristic centre of the municipality. Starting from the old core of the village, more and more people have settled along the promenade, changing the old fishing village into a modern, high quality holiday resort. In Playa Blanca you can feel the atmosphere and energy that has converted this place into the most attractive places on the island. The nearby Papagayo beaches invite you to relax. Here, in a protected natural park, "Los Ajaches", you can chill out and enjoy the tranquility and swim in crystal-clear water.
In the mountains above the Papagayo beaches you will find the peaceful and unspoilt villages Las Breñas and Femés with their breathtaking views over the surrounding countryside and the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura. In the traditional houses, some families are still producing the popular goat’s milk cheese. To regain your strength after you trip, why not go into one of the restaurants to sample some of the local food, such as goat.
