Vacation in the South of Lanzarote

Apart from a few quite mountain villages and tourist resorts around Playa Blanca, the southern tip of Lanzarote is largely uninhabited. Nevertheless or precisely because of this, there is a lot to explore in south Lanzarote. You can cross, for example, the seemingly endless wasteland of El Rubicón. In addition to a few, partly abandoned houses, you will find wild nature, tranquility and loneliness. The vibrant tourist resort of Playa Blanca, which you will reach at the southern end of El Rubicón, is a dramatic contrast.

Here in the south of the island you will find some of the less known sights of Lanzarote. You can visit, for example, the mosaic-like, colorful salt fields of Janubio and the lagoon of the same name, which shimmers in emerald green. But also Femés, a place in the south that seems almost forgotten, is waiting for you with a little surprise. Last but not least, visitors to the southern tip are thrilled by the breathtaking, partly white beaches that invite to exuberant vacation days by the Atlantic. In the following text you can read what else you can discover in the south of Lanzarote and what activities are waiting for you.

Things to See in the Lanzarote South

These four sights in the south of Lanzarote are insider tips and should not be missing on any to do list:

Salinas de Janubio

One of the most remarkable sights in the south: The Janubio salt fields. They are the only ones in Lanzarote. The square salt pans are placed chessboard-like - although not that exact. Due to their different colors, they give the impression to be an oversized art work. Their colors vary due to the different degree of evaporation of the water. The Janubio seawater lagoon borders directly on the salt fields, the lake in turn shines greenish due to the algae that live in it.

Faro de Punta Pechiguera

At the southwesternmost point of Lanzarote, where the waves roar against the cliffs, you will find the Faro de Punta Pechiguera lighthouse. At this site the old, 10 meter high tower and the modern, 50 meter tower share the attention of the visitors. Although the apartment complexes of Playa Blanca are not far behind the building, this place conveys peace and seclusion.

Femés

Femés is a picturesque little village at the foot of the Atalaya de Femés volcano. The white houses cluster around the village square with the Ermita San Marcial del Rubicón church, inside which you can admire old representations of sailing ships. At the far end of the village square you will find one of the most beautiful viewpoints in the south. The locals call it Balcón de Femés and it offers a breathtaking view to the south. From here you look over the El Rubicón plain and the Los Ajaches mountains until up to Playa Blanca.

Punta de Aguila

You can reach this headland on foot from Playa Blanca. The small fortress Castillo de las Coloradas is standing here, which was once supposed to protect the south coast from pirate attacks. The view from this point is simply breathtaking you can see the two islands Isla de Lobos and Fuerteventura. And if you turn your head a little further to the left, you will also discover the wonderful beaches of Playas de Papagayo.

We have put together even more sights in the south for you here. On our page for Playa Blanca you can also read detailed information about this great holiday location. Just click.

Interesting Facts About Southern Lanzarote

The Weather in the South of Lanzarote

In hardly any other region of Lanzarote can you enjoy as many hours of sunshine as in the south. The few clouds that the northeast trade wind carries into the north of the island either simply dissolve on the way to the south or, in the worst case, rain down beforehand. From the average of 16 rainy days a year, therefore, few are realized in the weather in the south of Lanzarote. That means the rain concentrates on the northern regions of the island in the winter months. The climate table shows almost constant temperatures for the island all year round and this also applies to the weather in the south. While you can expect around 26 to 29 degrees Celsius in summer, it is still 22 to 24 degrees in winter. The light breeze that blows constantly makes the warmer climate pleasant in summer. In winter, however, a jacket is sometimes necessary.

The Most Beautiful Beaches in the South of Lanzarote

Playas de Papagayo

A visit to the beaches around Punta del Papagayo is definitely one of the absolute highlights of every vacation in Lanzarote. A total of eight beach bays are lined up here, which are naturally separated by rocks. The beaches are not all accessible by car. Lovers of peace and solitude will find special joy at the more remote beaches. The most popular beach among you is the Playa de Papagayo. It is not the longest, but there is a restaurant and a bar. Here is a small overview of the beaches in the correct order from Playa Blanca:

  • Playa Mujeres, length about 420 meters
  • Caleton del Cobre, length about 25 meters
  • Playa Caletón San Marcial, length about 15 meters
  • Playa Del Pozo, length about 340 meters
  • Playa de la Cera, length about 100 meters
  • Playa de Papagayo, length about 100 meters
  • Playa Del Congrio, length about 340 meters
  • Playa Puerto Muelas, length about 110 meters

Playa de Janubio

The beach of the same name is located directly in front of the Janubio seawater lagoon. It is a black sandy beach where you can take wonderful walks. Olive trees grow between its rocks, which gives the scenic backdrop a charming Mediterranean flair. Due to the strong currents, it is not advisable to go swimming on this beach.

Hotels in the South of Lanzarote

A large part of the south coast of Lanzarote is fully developed for tourism. Numerous apartment complexes and hotels are lined up near the coast. It is thanks to the strong work of César Manrique that holidaymakers do not have to look at vast buildings and concrete towers. From south Lanzarote resorts it is not far to the beaches and from most rooms you can enjoy the sea view. The most popular hotels include the 5-star Iberostar Lanzarote Park, the 4-star H10 Timanfaya Palace and the 4-star Sensimar Natura Palace. These recommendations are based on internet research, for which we do not guarantee.
