Join The Wet Set On Lanzarote

by:Unionrise     2020-07-15
The popular holiday destination of Lanzarote is a great choice for anyone planning a sunshine break. But it's also ideal for water sports enthusiasts too as the island offers a whole raft (no pun intended) of aquatic activities, including sailing, diving and surfing. Lanzarote has quite a nautical pedigree in fact, as the island was once an important staging post for the growing Spanish Empire. Columbus set sail for India from the neighbouring island of Tenerife in 1492 and ended up discovering the Americas. Whilst on Lanzarote galleons packed with slaves from Africa would make the crossing to the New World, returning laden with Inca silver and gold, a trade that unsurprisingly attracted the attentions of numerous pirates and privateers. Including English heroes such as Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Francis Drake. Today the island is home to a brace of luxury marinas, which attract the wet set and their yachts from around the world. The older of the two is called Puerto Calero and is located just a short distance from the main resort on the island of Puerto del Carmen. Puerto Calero boasts a rather up market atmosphere and is home to a good selection of restaurants and shops. Some of the most luxurious villas in Lanzarote are also located here, making it an ideal place to stay. The multi-million euro Marina Rubicon was created around seven years ago and is located in the popular resort of Playa Blanca. Much like Puerto Calero the Rubicon Marina provides berths for luxury craft and also offers high quality shopping and dining. The five star Gran Melia Volcan hotel is located just behind the Marina, and some of the most sought after villas in Playa Blanca can also be found here as well. These two marinas provide the perfect base for a sailing holiday and there are a number of companies that cater to this market. It's even now possible to take officially accredited Royal Yacht Association courses on Lanzarote, a rather more enticing prospect than learning to sail on the chilly Solent on the south coast of the UK! Thanks to its perfect combination of winds and breaks Lanzarote has also become established as one of the most popular surfing spots in Europe. Much of the action is centered around the village of Caleta de Famara, which is situated on the islands more rugged North West coast, where visitors will find the best surfing conditions. There are loads of surf schools here all offering lessons and full on surf camps. If you plan to stay nearby Famara is also home to some of the best rural villas in Lanzarote. The fast emerging sport of kite surfing demands similar wind and wave conditions to conventional surfing and has also really taken off on Lanzarote in the last few years. Lanzarote attracts riders from across Europe congregating to show off their amazingly acrobatic tricks and stunts as they appear to 'fly' from one wave to another. The slightly more sedate sport of windsurfing is also very popular but concentrated on the calmer south east coastline in the resort of Costa Teguise. The large beach at Playa Cucharas is the ideal spot for both beginners and advanced boarders alike to take to the waves - and the wind conditions here are just perfect too.
