Lanzarote is BRILLIANT!!

We've just got back from Playa Blanca. Went for a week and we're really tanned! Only had one overcast/cloudy day on Sunday when we visited Teguise market.
Playa Blanca has lots of lovely restaurants and bars for the evening and our apartments (Playa Limones Bungalows) were really central, so even though we had planned to hire a car for a few days, we didn't need to in the end. The excusions we went on were fantastic. We went to the market, as I've already mentioned, for 8 euros each and also visited the Timanfaya Park Volcanos which were superb! We went there in the evening where dinner and the tour was all included in the price (about 40 euros)-well worth it. The last excursion we went on was a trip on a $million catamaran-UNMISSABLE!!!!!! An absolutely fabulous way to spend the last day of our holiday where lunch and all drinks (beer, wine, sangria etc) are all inclusive in the price-we paid 58 euros. The trip lasts for 4 hours and it was a perfect way to maximise our tans!!
Our rep told us when we arrived that we were able to use facilities in nearby hotels as long as we adhered to their policies, so we ventured out to a hotel (Timanfaya Palce Hotel) about 2 minutes walk from where we were staying. It was LUXURY! Two lovely pools (and an outside jacuzzi!) and excellent waiter service for lunch and dinner.
The beach in Playa Blanca is gorgeous and wasn't at all busy when we went.
I'd recommend Lanzarote to anyone. We can't wait to go again!! A great time of year to go to escape the British winter weather!
