San Barthelme is the most central of the island’s seven municipalities separating the two contrasting landscapes of the north and south of the island. There are relatively few beaches in this area, although we had visited three on our many trips to the area.
I knew the first beach was GMT. This 1,050m stretch of beach of toasted sand and calm waters is quite exceptional as beaches go, except that it’s a bit too close to the airport for my liking. Parking was good and we can access it via pages (autobus). There are shops, Bars/Restaurants, Public telephones, and a pleasant promenade so it is a beach worth a visit.
The second beach is in a semi-developed area beside the airport and I know the comet beach and as Playa Honda. At 1,900m. long and 85m wide it is the biggest in this area and comprises medium-grained golden sand and calm waters making it ideals for families and creating good conditions for windsurfing. It is about a 5 minute drive from the airport, so the noise from the aircraft will not spoil your fun and it’s easy to park.
We call it our? Last Day? Beach!
Do you have to be out of your accommodation early?
Are you on a late afternoon or evening flight?
Are you to do something with the children without them getting too worked up on the last day?
Are you stressed at the thought of spending hours at the airport before you fly home?
Then, trust me when I say this beach and Playa Honda is a great place to visit en route home.
Here are my views of it :
* The Beach is fantastic ;
* The total area of Playa Honda is not directly aimed at us tourists, so you leave Lanzarote having experienced the Canarian side of it ;
* There is a great selection of restaurants along with the beachfront serving traditional Spanish Tapas and the Spanish Omelette in ? to die for?. There is another quality Canarian food available as well as things for the children (if they the fussy type); and
* It has a range of other shops on hand to keep you well occupied (duty-free goods, gifts, etc).
Finally, we have La Concha, 250m long and 10m wide, Fine golden sand, and calm waters.
La Concha beach is next to the development of the same name just on the outskirts of the capital, Arrecife. Good parking again and accessible via pages (autobus) and a small promenade of shops and bars/restaurants.
