There are plenty of leisure activities and sports to keep both adults and children occupied not only around the Sands Beach Resort but throughout Lanzarote.
It is perfect for a relaxing walk along its many coastal paths. It is possible to walk the 5km from Sands Beach Resort to the edge of Arrecife, the fitter ones can enjoy a more challenging but no less rewarding 9km to Puerto del Carmen.
For those of you that forgot to pack the walking boots, cycling the same routes is another good choice but there are a few occasions when you will have to divert inland to avoid the sanded beaches.
Naturally the next step up from a bike is far more unique – horse riding. There are several popular routes which can all be done in small groups under supervision from an experienced guide. Whether you have never been on a horse before or are a seasoned pro this is a fantastic way to see this beautiful island and is a truly memorable experience.
Moving on to something a little quicker is go karting, always a popular choice and Lanzarote offers one of the biggest tracks around. The 2,346 metre offering based right next to the airport near Tias caters for both the young and old alike. In fact there is even a smaller track for complete novices and young children. An exciting morning or afternoon is guaranteed.
Golfers flock to Costa Tequise for the only 18 hole course on the island, but there is a 9 hole pitch and putt course in Playa Blanca at the Hesperia Playa Dorada Hotel on the coastal promenade which is ideal for younger visitors or for individuals who have only recently taken up the game. It is also a great way for more experienced players to enhance their short game.
Sea fishing is another very popular sport and a great way to top up the tan and feel the wind in your hair. Trips run from most of the harbours around the island but ask at the hotel reception in Sands Beach Resort for up to date information. A highly relaxing day is a certainty.
