The popular holiday island of Lanzarote in the Canaries is home to three main resorts. As well as the emerging marina of Puerto Calero – where visitors will find two upmarket hotels and an abundance of expensive yachts and craft from around the world.

Each of these resorts has a unique identity and offers a number of different attractions. Whilst also offering plenty of accommodation options – with a variety of Lanzarote villas, apartments and hotels available for visitors to stay in.

So where can you find some of the best holiday hotspots that have an excellent selection of holiday villas in Lanzarote to rent.

Puerto del Carmen

Formerly known as La Ti?osa Puerto del Carmen emerged to become Lanzarote?s leading resort during the package holiday boom years of the 1970?s. And is still the most popular destination on the island today.The resort boasts a large number of apartment complexes – reflecting its position as the best spot for a booking a budget holiday. But there are also plenty of decent hotels and villas in Puerto del Carmen for rent too.

The island government has recently spent over €16 million sprucing up Carmen’s image in order to maintain its competiveness against newer destinations around the world. So there’s never been a better time to visit.

Holiday Villas In Costa Teguise

Situated towards the northern end of the island Costa Teguise is just a short hop away from Arrecife airport. And started life as Lanzarote?s upmarket resort. Designed to attract moneyed Scandinavian and German tourists during the early boom years of the 1970?s.

The resort was developed under the aegis of C?sar Manrique – who created the central hub of the Pueblo Marinero and had a hand in the design of the Gran Melia Salinas Hotel. And is also home to some great beaches. However Costa Teguise?s popularity has waned a little over the last decade thanks to the fact that Playa Blanca in the south has emerged as real rival for visitor numbers.

Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca was the last of the main resorts on the island to be developed during the 1990?s. And has quickly emerged to become the second most popular destination on the island – thanks to a winning combination of great beaches and fantastic weather. As well as a fine range of hotels and holiday villas.

The resort is dominated by a sea front promenade that unites the three main beaches of Playa Dorada, Playa Flamingo and Playa Blanca (from which the resort takes its name). Whilst the striking set of bays and coves of Papagayo are around a twenty minute walk from the town centre.
